What I miss about the hippie days

June 7, 2010

For those of us who are old enough to remember … in spite of all of its faults (and there were a number of them), I think what I miss most about the hippie days is: a rejection of worldliness and shallowness, and a deep, serious inquiry about life and its deeper mysteries and meanings and purer manifestations … an …interest and curiosity (accompanied by a deep feeling) which seems to be greatly missing from the world today. But it was popular and even commonplace in many circles back then. In fact there was a peer pressure to reject shallowness and embrace depth. I miss all of that. OR … is it going on somewhere that you know about?
