Hi
I started a string in "Free for All" about being a Linda fan from the perspective of Robert Brewers generation. and also commented that I was older than most of the people in Lindas site... and putting out feelers for any others who remember the original magic and how it affected their lives.

more... I grew up with Linda, or should I say stayed young along with her. No, I dont mean I knew her personally. Words are so easy to misconstrue. She was a beacon to us "boomers" back then and I see that she has drawn a new generation of seekers. I read Gooberz over every few years and it is like a new book each time. I am still amazed by that.

Her free flow of wordsmithing always jumpstarts my own thought processes.Its very multi-dimensional... no lateral thinking but words popcorning all over the page. I know some people have a rough time getting into Gooberz but I urge you to give it another chance and drift along with it until it finds you.... then you will float gloat about how great it feels in the water instead of putting a toe in and pulling it out because it isnt just write(spelling intended)

I feel like a part of my spirit resonates with the 60's.

Linda's words are just pure magic; the way she had with words, with writing.

Gooberz is very powerful when read with the heart- it is a book of the heart; like good music and poetry translates feelings into something creative & powerful.....

I was born in the 60's and am very nostalgic of any reference to that time era. I love reading about her everyday life in both Gooberz and her poems from that time era.

Definitely a hippie here!
I was a teen in the 60s. My husband and me, and my son all have hair longer than 3 feet.

Crown of Creation
The first album I owned.
Crown of Creation, which appeared in 1968, displayed an increasingly political streak and a further tightening up of their sound.

Inductees: Marty Balin (vocals; born January 30, 1943), Jack Casady (bass; born April 13, 1944), Spencer Dryden (drums; born April 7, 1938, died January 11, 2005), Paul Kantner (vocals, guitar; born March 17, 1941), Jorma Kaukonen (guitar, vocals; born December 23, 1940), Grace Slick (vocals, keyboards, flute, recorder; born October 30, 1939).
In terms of music and lifestyle, the Jefferson Airplane epitomized the San Francisco scene of the mid-to-late Sixties. Their heady psychedelia, combustible group dynamic and adventuresome live shows made them one of the defining bands of the era. Much like their contemporaries on the San Francisco scene - Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and Big Brother and the Holding Company principal among them – the Airplane evolved from roots in folk and blues to become a psychedelic powerhouse and a cornerstone of the San Francisco sound. They were the first band on that scene to play a dance concert, sign a major-label record contract (with RCA), and tour the U.S. and Europe. In addition, they espoused boldly anarchistic political views and served as a force for social change, challenging the prevailing conservative mind set in “White Rabbit” and issuing a call to arms in “Volunteers.” In a sense, San Francisco became the American Liverpool in the latter half of the Sixties, and Jefferson Airplane were its Beatles.

Hi Nova, when you read Gooberz time and again...do you get a higher depth of feeling, does it resonate you to a whole new level of LOVE?

When ever I read it, I get a buzzy dizzy feeling..oh its a good one though, I can feel the magic behinds the worlds, though sometimes I dont understand it, I feel like someone is over my shoulder reading it too and saying "ahuh, yep..I got it!"

I had a birthday on Aug 1, and was a teen in the 60's. Beyond that there's no reason to say more I believe. I feel fortunate to live what I have lived.

I don't know when Linda's work entered my life, but I know there was a powerful resurgence for me in the mid 80's. I've found that as I read, no matter which book it is, the message is personal, profound, and changing. It's always like a one-on-one, personal talk with her, and I think that's part of the attraction; others feel it too. No?

Lotus dear...hippies are anti-war.
Long hair alone does not a hippie make.
