So Mary, was this before or after the hippie days?

Yeah ... my knees didn't hurt so bad!  :-)

 

But seriously ... you're right. How does that saying go? "Youth is wasted on the Youth". But I do find it interesting that I feel the same way inside as I did when I was younger.

 

It seems that the body ages faster than the mind, soul and our psyches.

Virginia, I certainly understand and agree with what you're saying.  At times when I see myself in the mirror or in a photo I think "Who the Hell is that!?"   

 

If only it could be like Brad Pitt's movie-Benjamin Button.  IMO a great movie!

Here's one of me and my hippie dad from the appropriate era:

And here's one of me as a teenager trying to be a hippie (I wore a lot of long floaty dresses) (I'm on the left in the blue denim jacket):

I used to joke that I was a hippie in a past life. These days my standard uniform is more jeans and a funky t-shirt but I still have the odd floaty dress.

Floaty dresses aren't odd. :-)

 

Jennifer, your comment about being a hippy in another life reminded me of this. Long after those days were over, and I was still working as a chef in another life, I was sitting on a pickle bucket taking a break and out of the blue one of the waiters came up to me and said "you're an undercover hippy, aren't you?" I don't know what he saw that prompted that, but it was a pretty funny thing to have someone say to me.

I always suspected there was an undercover hippie movement on UW - just did not know how strong it was.

 

Keep the confessions (and awesome throwback pictures) coming people.

BTW Rene and John cannot be a part of this movement -  in another world maybe, but not this one.

 

Hippies Definition:

 

'(especially in the 1960s) a person of unconventional appearance, typically having long hair and wearing beads, associated with a subculture involving a rejection of conventional values'... etc

 

Reminds me of the old arguement - Are hippies born or made?
