wild child

"Wild thang, I think I love you..." runs through my head. I've known a lot of wild children, and I've been one myself. I seem to have lost my wildness though I hung on to it tightly, doing a "Dead Tour" at age 51; I discovered I could still be a wild child. Funny, what negative feelings I experience when I think of myself in that role of wild child, living on the road, doing immense amounts of pyschedelics and truly enjoying myself. I think, instead I should be celebrating my opportunity to have had those intense experiences, to truly live wild and free. No one was injured in the filming of the movie though many were changed. 1997 that was....the year my father and my favorite cat ever both died. I came back home in about 3 weeks.

2003 found me on the road to Montana, alone, having met an interesting fellow Rainbow family member. I bit of wildness came out again. Another wild child adventure, grist for the mill for sure. I was in Hot Springs, MT for about a month or so, very interesting little (and I mean little) town. Near a Native American reservation with awesome hot springs. Good for what ails you.

I came home. Anah was born and because I wanted to be a different sort of role model, I haven't been a wild child very much since then. But I suppose she's in there, still, waiting for Spring, when wild things come alive.

I went to a Rainbow gathering in 2010 - but only went for a part of a day. Didn't really immerse myself - but I thought that it would be so cool to do that - to stay and "be".

What a beautiful girl your were! I love that hippie look.

I went to several National Gatherings and stayed for a week or two each time. Amazing experiences, met some very interesting people too.

Love this post! You were in a movie? Did I read that right or is it a metaphor?

I may have to check out the 365 writing prompts. I've been a bit blocked lately & just avoiding writing entirely.

Using movie as metaphor... thanks for liking the post. The prompt thing forces me to wrote something even if it sometimes makes no sense. The older I get the less motivated I become...so it goes

Ah, I'm glad I came back by to check after you left me a comment! I didn't get a notification (looks like maybe you didn't reply to my comment?). I was thinking it was metaphorical, but if you were quite the wild child, I guess you never know!

Well I tried to reply to each of the comments separately but couldn't figure out how, but the one about the movie was intended as a reply to you, A. I tend to think of life as a movie, nothing is real after all or is it?
