Talk about labeling...whoa..
I am a meld of the two, Lynn.
Bev is Earth; I am connected spiritually to this planet, and I guarantee
you that I have spent more money on trees and wildlife causes-just this
year than probably any of the regular posters on this list. I am a
child of the 60's and 70's, I still love bell bottoms and braid and rope
belts and long hair. I even have a peace sign in my garden and I am
about to make a hypertufa peace sign for the door of my greenhouse.
At the same time, I prepared for y2k, have always had dreams about post
apocolyptic life, I store food and dry goods and learn skills, and I am
preparing to hunker down and disconnect.
Lynn, I am very idealist, almost to the point of being naive, and yet, I
am hardened by events in my life. I'm not a 'God Loves You' kind of
girl, and I, too, am a reformed yuppie, so I suppose I am more of a
Back-To-The-Lander than a Hippie.

“Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to
hate. Hate leads to suffering.” Yoda
