RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
My computer and post,,ing stuff is new to me. I started this in a discussion forum, it seems to me I should put it in a blog.
To recap so far (for those thousands who missed the earlier comments.
The opening vision was very well attended....again our thanks to Berry, Momma Donna, Marco, Chime.....and all the others who took the time and put in a lot of hard work for all us kids!
Holding camps have sprung up all around. I'm at Silver Dollar lake with a pretty large group.
Crews went out yesterday to start the laborious task of cutting trails and opening space for places like Kiddie village. There are some strong concern that the Walnetto's.....or is that Palmmetto?? whatever they are called...and cactus will be a safety issue for kids...and those who perhaps find their walking a bit compromised from...ever shifting gravity fluxes.... Another concern is that since the area was burned 18 months ago....that there will be a lot of ash dust....hmmmm.
Speaking of large quantities of Alcohol.... The kids are 'putting down a few....toooo many. I'm always sadly reminded how disturbing the angry voices can be when drunkenness diminishes one's to know when 'things are going out of control. There have already been at least a couple fights.
On a more positive not though.....a few of the past offenders have said to me that they REALLY do want to trade up to become peace makers.... This is good. The problem can be of course that people who have been drinking for so many years...and in such large quantity, seem to lose the sense to know when a 'buz' becomes 'shitfaced'. Alas....
The gooooood, super dupper goooderest news is that I'm meeting strong, grounded hippie couples..AND a growing number of youngsters....(OH my God....I just realized I'm old enough to say 'Youngsters!!??), that are very clear and industrious. Lot's of goodish vibes.
I continue with hope for the best gathering ever! Peaceon Friends and Family.
