True Story, Singleton 2008 Hippie Art

True Story
SOLD
(c) Singleton 2008


98 pages of
Bohemian
love,
circles of fate,
planes falling
from the sky....
My story.

The only one I know.
The true story.
The one they never believe.

And you laughed
and threw back
your beer and
said "Cheers to the lady whose gonna save the world with just one word",
not believing or seeing the change in the mirror,
and I laughed
when we
said good~night
and you realized
you were
smiling through each story,
twirling,
spinning,
dancing.....
On your hateful Friday night.

The night you'd promised to the blues.....

"Peace".....
I whispered over my shoulder
in closing ceremonial fashion,
and you smiled again....

I know,
I saw it in the mirror.....

Lol @ LotusBlossum...how could one ever resist those words? AND how could one ever resist this Hippie Parade?!
All-nighters and ribeyes,
cardboard boxes and tarot cards,
disco lights & windchimes,
... peace. Just a sliver.
Walk with me in the Hippie Parade.
Believe. PALS...ILYSVFM. PLS! IWW.

This gives me chills...

My mystical, powerful friend...

Thank you for being here...
In this sometimes hateful world...

For believing...

For knowing...

That just
one
word

given wings

brings change...

in the currency
of smiles
and thoughts
and little actions...

bottletops transformed
into peace signs.

Sending you my love always,

Maithri

Dear friend,

I feel the call to peace so strongly today... its coming on the breeze, in the soil underfoot...

I feel it wrapping its whispered songs around the world... and bringing seeds of hope... and the quiet footsteps of change...

Sending you deep love
and the peace of the quiet river to you and your beloveds,

M

C~ Gotta love you girl! Your package is posting today (Bet you thought I'd never get these girls mailed!) Much love....and thank you for knowing that sooner or later I actually would go to the post office....And she's yours, of course, sweet friend....

skinny...we've been dancing in the hippie parade forever, twirling those peace batons, tossing 'em out to the crowd......ILYSVVM girl. In a million lifetimes, I could never say enough times....how BIG I love you! And jsyk, no matter how many miles lie two laned, four laned, dirt roaded between us, you've been with me every moment of every sleepless day through all of this....Kimbies, you....I couldn't stand up without you girls! xoxo

Maithri....
It was that one word
whispered over and over again,
that brought Peace full circle
back into my arms....
You know...
And this true story,
this little moment suspended in time,
was a breeze....
a butterfly...
reminding me
to believe.
Thank you my friend, for knowing, believing, listening,
being there...
Much love, my friend

Babs....
I believe it's The most beautiful word in language....


Peace~love my friends
May the circle be unbroken
