rebellion...

Rebellion has always been a way of life for me. Tell me I can't do something, I will rebel and do it any way. Of course, this hasn't always led to the best of the choices, but it has been the way I've lived. In 1969, I took Timothy Leary's advice to "turn on, tune in, and drop out." By 1975, I wasn't the radical rebel I had been. I really did try to fit in to the societal norm, dressed like a 70's housewife, spent endless hours volunteering at school and in many youth organizations, but my rebel heart still burned within me. In 1986 I discovered the Rainbow Family of Living Light and attended my first national Rainbow Gathering. As I entered the gathering and heard the people calling out "Welcome Home", I knew I was never going back to pretending to be other than who I am. Back to running barefoot, dancing to the Grateful Dead, living on the road, protesting, marching, back to rebellion wherever I could find it.
