Free Love Man

In high school I was a part of this program where instead of writing reports and taking tests about those necessary subjects, we wrote plays, put on performances and shot films to show what we’d learned. Oh to feel the free love of a teenager in hippie Marin. Maybe that’s what inspired me to convince my history teacher that Joan Baez was in fact a historical figure — no I just really wanted to wear flowers in my hair, a peasant blouse and bell-bottom jeans while carrying around my friend’s guitar when everybody else was dressed up as Abraham Lincoln and Harriet Tubman.

Isn’t that photo amazing? Thanks CS.
