Updated and transcribed for Hippiechick40 by A.C.


A recent card to one of our members from Charlie.

Special thanks to A.C. for the accurate transcription.

Left side.) What you can do now is have a good day, every day. Have no regrets or sadness. Just realize, you are where it’s at, because it’s all alone.

(Right Side.) Traveled the world looking for what I needed to find, and found that when I was in the hills, or on the back porch, it was right there, in my own mind. I shook my head in disbelief, I asked holy men, and the highest of priests; They all said, when you can clear your mind of doubts, fears and questions; Rest your mind in peace and love, your mother Earth, you will be in Heaven. (That’s a poem, or perhaps a song he’s working on). I did (it) fast, because back home on the back porch, they called that lazy and stupid. When the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) came to Kentucky, building dams, it destroyed the way of life along the rivers, and the fishing and stills* faded, and the big drain pit in the yard, and how they made apple sauce, and berries in mason jars* and oil lamps went out. And cars and trucks took the wagons away. In just one lifetime, I’ve seen a lot to know, and knew. And so did my uncles and grandmom. But no one could hear them. TV came, and took it all away for the price of money. *refers to distilleries and making homemade wine (That is complaining about the old ways being displaced.) (Right Side, Upside Down) P.S., no need to write back. I’m inside of you forever anyway, forever and always. And now, loving you is all I do. (Aw!)

Matt the slacker was suppose to make it big enough to read. I may fire him for this!

I made it bigger...

Why, it's just as unintelligible and baffling in big type as it is in tiny type!

That's our Charlie...

It reads like lyrics to a song or a poem about what he has learned in life.

Why is he so disjointed? Is he mentally ill? maybe.

Gorked from the LSD? It has that schizo feel, yes.

Shamanic, as AC would say? Patty can see that too.

If you don't pay too much attention to the literal meaning of his words and just let them flow over you like a Kerouak novel, you do most definitely get a vibe from them.

I had to blow up the image, and turn it upside down, but heregoes:

Hey, that’s a “Tree Free” Card.
