Feed your head - Ok I'll take a stab. It was the rally cry of the counter culture. We were sorting through the establishment, tossing things that kept us from a better place. We tossed things like traditional war, love, hair length, dress length, general clothes style. We referred to ourselves as "heads", i.e. he's a good head...It seems in retrospect it was just a common feeling we all felt, and flashing the peace sign and being freaky was the form of greeting, as in "are you with it?" "Are you hip?". So feed your head fit in so nicely with the counter culture, as in feed that "head" mindset....and everyone kept the "head" theme going 'n growing... "Those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end...."

Thanx for those words.......I was only 10 years old in the "Summer of Love", but I rapidly grew into that philosophy....and my motto was always "....psychedelic music is IN with tyme..."::):):)

scratch the shit on rocks again. Because there isn't paper, we did use that on the toilets. The holy books of
war & religion are used on the toilets to, oh what a fun to do. Let the rocks roll for ever. Oh what a shame....


Right on man:):):)

Wow, that one made me get tears in my eyes...yes, I do remember those days. And I miss the sounds and the smells and the sights and the feel of the Haight-Ashbury. It really was an incredible time. It was all so very REAL.
