I have just found Alicia Bay Laurels web site. I have tag it to our home. I have pointed arrows in her direction. I have told friends where to look.
Now I read words, her daily chats about old and new friends along the path that she has paved. The careful way she walks on this planet. She stops and sits and lives each day, meeting the world, telling the world about our planet. Some thing that I did find out recently is
Hi my beautiful sister….I’m following you around on this California leg..drove up from LA..Sant Barb…Atascadero…now Berk..must go over to Stockton tonight..but back in time for your gig..Im looking forward to seeing you and cheering in the crowd..you are once again doing an incredibly wonderful thing..my love and admiration abound… we are the same. we are the same. see you soon.
…………it has been such a whirl these past several days that i haven’t gotten to www.alicia.com. and now i know how those women feel who are hooked on the "soaps" and feel cheated if they miss a day!!….only you are the feel good serial!!………….
lots of love and big hugs,
Welcome to New York, Alicia! Now that you have your chic black wardrobe down pat, you’ll notice that the avant-stylish have taken to wearing colors that would make a Mauian trailer-parker blush. If there were such a person. By July the rest of us will be doing it too, and thinking that people who try to look sophisticated are obviously from the country. I love the traveling Website. Now you are virtually omnipresent in more ways than two. It is so totally convergent of you to bring earth consciousness IN MOTION to our shared electronic landscape. Thank you for the goddess. She is reclining on my desk where she completely covers up the TV set. And for all other blessings. Especially the sharing, so aptly reflected in your inspiring "Reflections" pages. They inspire by inspiring us all to inspire. Tama

how excited was i when i saw skip’s interview with alicia!!!!! my friend’s parents bought that book back when she first released it~ they lived their lives by it. 4 years ago i came across a pristine copy of it in a used book store. it has become one of my most prized possesions and biggest resources for living self sufficiently. thank you thank you skip for re-introducing it to another generation. it still holds mountains of knowledge for our generation and the many to come. =))))))))
reply from hippy.com:
Thanks for your post! I haven’t mentioned this before, but I know Alicia personally from my Maui Daze. She’s a wonderful person, full of good energy and she sings and plays guitar too! She’ll be doing that on her tour. I might even show up at a few of her book signings! Go to her site to find out more. But first read my review of her book (which I also read back in the early 70s). The review is at http://www.hippy.com/alicia.htm
I think more than ever we need to spread information about alternative lifestyles to the overbearing, addictive rat-race. Earth Day is coming and it is a time for us to remind ourselves that we are living in a huge fantastic garden that we must care for or it will die.
I hope that more hippies of my generation will come forward and share the knowledge they have accumulated over the decades so we can all learn how to live more harmoniously.
