"Big Rock Pow Wow" - also: The Youngbloods
I lived in the Norwood section of Miami at the time, very close to the Seminole Village. I was attending Miami Dade College. I had already experimented with some Sandoz acid that my buddy who lived in in New Jersey brought back. My friend took me there because we were into Tim Leary and his book The Politics of Ecstasy too and Leary was there at the festival. I don't remember much anymore, but I do remember lots of joints being thrown into the crowd from a decorated truck that Leary was in. I saw a couple of chicks were topless and smiling at me and dancing. It wasn't obscene or perverse and gaudy like a lot of crap you see today, but very free and innocent and natural. Love, man...keep the vibe alive.

Goin'up to the spirit in the sky!
