National Gathering

Hello all
My Friend Flower asked me back in December if I was going to be at the National Gathering in New Mexico this Year when I was in San Diego. I told him yes definately and have no intentions of backing out, however, I am now back in CT and in need of a ride to New Mexico for the Gathering this summer. I do not know if I am going to stay in CT seeing as how after Greensboro, I almost did not come back, however, I decided to make a little money and come back. I will keep you posted if I do not need a ride because the GD bus is coming right past my hometown, but as it stands, I need a ride right now to New Mexico. He said he'd try to get his friend from Maine to pick me up, but just in case, I would like to try to get another plan going. Also, if there are regional gatherings up here, put me in the loop. Contact me here or on hotmail at
Thanks and until the 4 winds may blow us all safely home, or back into the woods :)

I'd love to go to a Rainbow gathering

However, I'm a grizzled old guy like Jerry (some say I have almost the same personality) was and would probably be called a Nazi. That sucks - because I really hate Nazis. They're like some super-spoiled Sorority of dorks!!

total eclipse of the sun - 2017

I'm really looking forward to the total eclipse of the sun on August 17, 2017, it will be crossing the whole U.S. Something to look forward to. Should be some good gatherings for that one!

Shaking in the garden, the fear within you grows
Hear there may be roses to punch you in the nose
Twist their arms around you, slap you till you cry
Wrap you in their sweet perfume and love you till I die
When push comes to shove
You're afraid of love

Hmm, not a lot of folks on here lately it seems. I am glad to see a rainbow forum here, it just feels right. So I guess now there is the topic of New Mexico. Anyone remember the last time we were there? 94 I think? The locals were not too happy. Hopefully we can make up for that this time. Also, anyone have any idea what is up with the "A Gathering of the Tribes" gathering which has been taking place at the same time as nationals for the past 5 years or so? Its obviously family, so I wounder why the split. I mean there have been splits before, in the 90's, like in 93 with the whole Alabama/Kentucky thing. Then there was Zeus! Any one remember him? He really threw some folks through a loop, with "his" gatherings, changing all the road signs and rock piles, leading folks right to his site. One time it was on the sheriffs land! Oh well, love to everyone, no judgment here. But now we have a recurring gathering July 1-7 with the silent circle and everything, in like Missouri or something. It is said that the "A Gathering of the Tribes" was created to "preserve the traditions of the Rainbow Family of Living Light." Now I have not been home in a while, have things gotten that bad? And what happened to all the regionals we used to have in the early 90s. I remember being on trail and going from gathering to gathering, catching tour, then to a gathering, and another gathering. I mean I only came out of the woods for shows, that was pretty much it. I know of a few kind annual regionals that still go on, like Katuha and Cumberland, but those folks certainly don't advertise. I wonder if there are more? I'm not into the blown up scenes like Ocala, which I heard is not even a rainbow gathering anymore, officially speaking anyway. I went to Shawnee back in 2000, that was a bad seen man. Gathering on Native burial ground, people walking around with bones, no vegan food, and a "Jesus Loves You" kitchen interrupting circles with their foul repetitive chanting of the name "Jesus" over and over. It was a non-focalized, non-rainbow gathering. But for every bad one, there are many more good, and much love is needed everywhere, so I was happy to shine my light, even at the men in black with night-vision goggles, who were creeping through the woods taking pictures. Anyway, thats my rant. I love you all and can't wait to get home. See ya all soon. Peace.
