About This Blog
This blog is intended to be my place to generally be myself, maybe vent a little, but mostly to layout my plans for an extended hippie trip, and later to write about my experiences on that journey.
I will begin by writing about the developments, life's lessons, and philosophical underpinnings leading up to my desire to undertake such a journey. I will then spend a good deal of time discussing plans and ideas I have concerning what I refer to as my permanent or extended hippie trip. Later on, and throughout (since all of life is a journey), I will be documenting my journey in real-time. Along the way I'll probably also discuss music, love, life in general, and all the wonderous and glorious things about life, its ups and its downs, etc.
Don't be surprised if this blog flashes back and forth between the here-and-now, plans for the future, and events and memories of the past, as I have no particular order to my own personal madness – I just want to live.
I hope somebody out there enjoys this little piece of me and finds some sort of inspiration, hope, happiness, or entertainment in it. I also hope someone out there gets a good laugh or two, as I am known to be a bit of a goofball.
This is just one part of my story which began in November of 1975, continues to this day, and hopefully has many more years and pages to be written. Would it be too much for me to ask for a happy ending as well? I don't think so.
I leave you with two quotes from Socrates, a man who's style of examination and philosophical inquiry I am quite fond of.
“From virtue comes every good of man.” -Socrates, in Plato's, The Apology
“A man who is good for anything ought not to calculate the chance of living or dying; he ought only to consider whether in doing anything he is doing right or wrong – acting the part of a good man or a bad man.” -Socrates, in Plato's, The Apology
