I was in search of a good time. Just running my game. Love was the furthest, furthest from my mind. Now we’re sharing the same dream and our hearts they beat as one. No more love on the run.

Rad chanting at Hippy Hill in Golden Gate Park on a sunny day.

Check out the football game in the upper right corner during the last few moments.

That’s what’s really weird about this part of the park. It’s a magnet, kind of like the chaos magnets in LOST, that attracts all of these stark contradictions/ opposites hanging out right next to each other.

Alpha-male team-sports guys next junkie homeless guys.

20 year old college kids next to 60-year-old guys that have been talking about nothing but Woodstock for the past 20 years.

Violent unleashed dogs and small children.

And then once in a while you’ll see something truly unique and amazing, like a Jedi Knight practicing his skills in the park.

Right around the corner you also have several different little league (I’m talking grades 1-6 little league) soccer games going on a stones throw from a permanent homeless crusty-punk encampment where people are openly selling drugs and getting wasted in broad daylight. It’s like at any moment you expect to turn a corner and ride your bike straight into the beginning of a CSI or SVU episode.

Walk the Earth like Kane in Kung Fu 11

There’s been lots of amazing gymnastics in the park lately. I’m not sure if you would call this yoga or Jedi training, I think I might just stick with Kung Fu for now. Wherever there’s a drum circle on a sunny day you can find these guys practicing.

And lately the drum circle by The Conservatory Flowers has been going OFF. I was there on a Thursday at 3PM and they had a solid group sound that included someone on guitar and someone else on a didgeridoo and all the different sounds complimented each together.
