Is there, like, a nudist subset of the Rainbow Family?
It's IS fear - and animals go naked every day. My little kittys who hide under the bed every time there's a thunderstorm go naked everywhere they go . . . they are completely uninhibited. I think if you've never been nude in public it's an obstacle that needs to be overcome . . . and the most religious person CAN do it since (as I said before) . . . nudity has nothing to do with sex, drugs, or rock n roll.
You can always wear a fig leaf if you're a White Christian. If you're Black you can wear an African loin cloth. Are we all really THAT ashamed of our anticedents? I like to think that my great-great X 10 grandpa knew what he was doing - he was just limited by the then-present technology.
Whatever. Technology kills.

I frequent the USA Network Forums (It's just people talking about the shows on USA - like "Law & Order" and "Monk") and in a recent post told everyone there that I've been going nude since I was 14. We had excellent outdoor naked parties in California recently and I even went to Black's Beach . . . the local nude beach in San Diego.
There's the link for the post. I guess since it's a TV channel's forum lots of people will eventually learn about my Nature Boy tendencies. Hey - all I can say is that it's really fun to watch TV and do other houshold routines in the buff. Ever since I read, "The Door Into Summer" by Robert A. Heinlein with the hero that accidentally ends up in a nudist colony in the 70s (Sunnydale) . . . the guy was cool and just adapted to the situation and was no pansy. I just thought the idea was interesting in a Zen Buddhist kinda way.
Just thought I'd share that because I think it's very hippie. It's amazing how some people are so inhibited about being nude out in the open . .. when (strictkly speaking) - nudity has nothong to do with sex, drugs, or rock n roll . . . dude. It has to do with getting back to the basics of Nature - which we are incapable of escaping in this life. The forces of Nature surround us and travel through us. We are the voice of the universe . . . second generation star stuff.
This was my first gathering. Were any other of you dead.net people there? I'd love to hear from some of you again.

From what I've heard the Annual European Rainbow Gathering 2008 is to be held in Serbia July-August. Should be pretty sweet I would think!
Are you kind?
Hi, I was wondering.......Any plans for a gathering over here on this side of the pond ?????
Have Been to 5 Gatherings
First gathering was 1980 Washington, then Idah, california, and Pensylvania
Sorry to say the Rainbows are not a welcome bunch in these parts. I never gathered with them, so I don't know the whole story. Our media and the law that be, has given them a very bad rap. Crime and littering, are the main issues. Leave no foot prints and peace to all.
