    Did you run into Wavy Gravy or any members of the Dead, Airplane, Moby Grape, Buffalo Springfield, etc.?
    I first met the Dead in the context of them being the house band for the Acid Tests, and then later in the Haight.  None of them would remember me, I suspect.

    I can be found in the index of several histories and memoirs  of the times; a very minor underground culture hero.  Some of us from those times remain in contact.

    It is a bit of a shock to realize all this history is nearly 50 years old.  I was 21 in the Haight, late '66 - late '67.

    don't always believe what you think

      Especially if you avoided 'Nam.

      Me, I turned 21 when Reagan won the election...

      I managed a good run personally, but the culture was really all downhill from there.

      I'm putting my hopes in Son of Occupy.

      btw, I was in SF last June. Walked through the Haight and Golden Gate Park. It was good be back. It had been a while. Went there a lot in the 90s. Couple times in the 80s.

      How about Quicksilver Messenger Service. Weren't they out of SF?

      Are you in the Bay area now, Claude?

      I'd like to retire as a minor counterculture hero. Working on it. :)

      Mindfulness is the first necessity of sanity and survival and the first casualty of Consumer Culture.
