The New York Times posted an article that has my heart (and soul) soaring.
The road that I've been winding down, the music that's passed through my ears, the folks that I've talked to, the books I've read, the articles I've pondered over, the movies I've drooled over, the documentaries I've taken notes in, the blogs I've wrote, the ideas that I've had .... all culminating into...
I'm flipping out. Read the article here.
"THE NEW YORK FREAKING TIMES, PEOPLE!" is what I yelled when I first laid my eyes on this, yelling to no one in particular.
Why does this mean so much?
It's a big BIG STATEMENT.
When the mainstream accepts that what we are doing, means something?
When they accept that the flag those hippies hoisted ALL THOSE 50 years ago <<is still being carried?>>
When they accept that a natural way of life is welcomed, accepted, "NORMAL" now more than ever?
We continue to bring this way of life, this feeling good and this health to more and more people, to those who are open, to those who are ready, to those who crave it. Lutz Nutrition has always been set to a back drop of (healthy) mind expansion, orchard-chanting, sage wand waving, meditational goodness. Oh, and the music, the freaking music. The cover photo is beautiful Grace of Jefferson Airplane donning a Zucchini t-shirt.
So, here it is....
Thank you hippies. We continue your work.
Natural foods BEGAN with you. It was a STATEMENT against the mainstream.
We are the alternative. We are holistic. And we are IN LOVE with what we are doing, what you've created, what we've continued with, that we are changing lives. It is the movement.
"It's all happening."
In honour of this monumental celebration, here's a list of my hippie-est educational (and just plain fun) blogs!
Our Roots: We even feel like "I was born in the wrong era!" Our generation is missing the simplicity of a time passed.
The Natural Movement: "We are in the System, take a Stand."
Sympathy for the Devil/Looking Inward: "Helping people find their balance causes celebrations, and is so freakin' rock n' roll."
Nutrition in Song: "Rock is restless and rude. It's defiant and daring."
Freaky Fermented Foods: "These aren't new - they never went away. In alternative health circles, these have been common since the 60s and 70s."
Becoming Hippie: "All that's old is new again. Diet, Personal Care, Lifestyle: How I became Hippie."
I continually strive to learn from yesterday & to live an intentional life that is slow, nostalgic, simple and real. Thanks for joining me.
Peace & Love,
