I have synasthesia. Didn't know it or realize I was weird until last year. I saw a program on one of the interesting satellite tv stations. I'm 46 ;-) I thought everybody was like that. My daughter also has many of the same characteristics. We just assumed all folks experienced the same stuff.

A note to sea food eaters, avoid large cuts of sea food, eat only the smaller younger species, the bigger ones have a long exposure time to mercury and other waste in the water.

Karen, the "hippies" who are still practicing their lifestyle most often refer to "ourselves" as dinosaurs! Folks don't notice us much as we tend to just look like poor folk who dress funny! Mitch, is it herring?

-- Toni (, April 09, 2002.

Herrings are correct, anybody still got their beads and hood ornaments?

-- mitch hearn (, April 09, 2002.

Got the old beads, still got the old man(who has held up quite well), and still have most of the old dreams and beliefs...just drive an SUV instead of a VW bus and wear jeans to work on casual day! I think there are a lot of us around still...maybe "respectability" is the real underground method...who would suspect???

Wow. Well, here I sit in my blue jeans, though this is a skirt. The extra denim was sewn on the opened seams, of course, and I embroidered the whole thing with cross stitch, a few flowers - a huge clump of daisies right at the hem, all around. Cool. Farm out. Feeling very very groovy. And as my uncle would have said to us kids as we sat by the campfire on Tincan beach in the 60's, "when we were kids, back in the late 30's - you know what we said?" We all looked up at him with our heads tilted at odd angles, the fire and night reflecting shadows on everything around us. "What, Unka Bill?"

He looked at us and suddenly realized he had us all in his power, a bunch of gangling pre-teens, hooked on every word by that fireside.

"Mellow Valto Reenie..." he said real slow, almost at a drawl. His green eyes shown as the fires licked the sand around us in golden light...

"Mellow valto reenie..." we all said to ourselves, in our minds, not daring to be uncool or anything.

I now - many years later - do believe he was telling us a huge tale.
