I swim. I concentrate on my breathing and the co-ordination of my movements. Almost mindlessly I count the strokes and the laps. Perfect meditation. The utterly senseless activity of fishing is a western form of meditation too.

Here's what I do. Sit up, or lay down, it doesn't matter, but your spine has to be straight. Close your eyes, or look at a blank surface. Concentrate on breath coming in and out of your body, preferably taking note of your chest rising and falling. Let go of any thoughts as they come up. The aim is to have your mind at rest and empty of thought for a while, but if it doesn't work, don't worry. At least you'll have relaxed.

This has nothing to do with what Jefferson Airplane looked like. Maybe we should start a new topic?

Hmmmm... maybe....

This thread has gone from Jefferson Airplane, to pubic hair, to revolution, to the metaphysical, to meditation, to... God, it could go anywhere from here....

Maybe we should start a new one.

What Susan described is exactly what I've started doing recently.It really helps.

What plasticfantastic said though, is exactly what they would have liked us to have talked about, and its not exactly about what the band looks like, rather what the image represents.

And I finally found that silly picture of them in the white suits and such!

The End
Where have all the young men gone?
Long time ago
Gone for soldiers every one
When will they ever learn?

Oh do we have to? I was about to get back to the subject. I know why they're in white suits. They're teaming up with Bob Hope to tour South Vietnam.

Actually, I thought that was a good ending and was hoping people would leave it there, but I also though, "Maybe hes listening to The Doors...", but it just seemed too perfect.But then again, this is fun, I like Susans thought on why they are dressed like that.Continuation I say!

Maybe we could put Morrison, Joplin and Hendrix on Mt. Rushmore :idea:

Who would be the fourth? Bob Hope?

I've decided that I like WoodenShips better than House At Pooneil Corners....

Hmm... If we need a fourth, we could always use Pigpen MacKernan from The Dead. He died at twenty-seven too. Right time frame. Or Robert Johnson, maybe. Wrong time frame, but it would be worth it.

Wooden Ships is better than House at Pooneils Corner.Its just more powerful and meaningful, House is just experimental, its cool and creepy, but not as good.

This is how I see Mt. Rushmore...

I prefer Wooden Ships to House on Pooneil Corner as well. Although just as songs, I love them equally, I just love the music and the fabulous vocals on Wooden Ships.

Marty, Grace, and Paul all singing their parts, which are all three so distinctive and beautiful is just too much to pass up. Aside from White Rabbit and Somebody to Love, that was my first Airplane song.
