    Jacket For Peace

    I am honored to wear the jacket for peace. The beauty to smile to a stranger and pass on peace is an honor. I wear this jacket as a symbol of my goal to bring little pockets of peace as my little steps will take me. The peace journey started inward…..then slowly the layers of...

    Not Your Typical Stoner

    I don't believe my personal definition of hippi is the same as everyone else's. I do occasionally smoke pot, but my world doesn't revolve around it (anymore). I bathe daily. I try to abide by the saying "Live and let live", and raise my children to honor The Golden Rule. For the...

    What Does 'Hippie' Even Mean These Days??

    Despite my piercings and different hair and the tattoos I will one day Have, I describe myself as a hippie. Why? Because Im a free spirit. I do what I want and I get through life on love and marijuana. If life was to be any other way, I wouldnt choose to be here. :)

    I Am a Hippie

    I would like to think that I'm a hippie. I believe in a lot of hippie ideals, and I love music specifically from the hippie movement. However, my one fault as a hippie is that I'm not a vegetarian. That makes people think I'm not a hippie, for some reason. I do love the...

    Embodiment of a free thinker,

    I know I'm a hippie. I really do portray it quite often, I see it when many people around me are absolutely close minded and cannot resolve around to my way of thinking even if I'm not trying to convince them to. Some people won't even accept the ideals I lay forward because it...

    People should really try doing things like
