Last year someone posted on ALF that furries were the new hippies. I laughed and scoffed at the idea. Yet, the more I thought about it and the deeper I went into the furry culture, the more the idea of feeling like a hippie became more intriguing. I have adopted the concept of free love. I feel an instant bond with fellow furs and am willing to share what I have with them. I have adopted the "if it feels good, do it" menatlity. I have a greater awareness of the natural world and where man fits in in that world. I have checked my prejudices and discriminatory tendencies at the door. And here I sit wait waiting with great antipation to attend a furry version of Woodstock known as Further Confusion. I am enjoying my position on the edge of "normal" society. Peace!
