When I came out in 1969 I was in a commune/collective. I was one of the founding members. I wound up getting the biggest room in the commune because I actually decorated my space with India print spreads and posters as well as stuff I rescued from the curb side when the students left for the summer. I had cushions and a low table as well as a record player. After dinner and the obligatory pot smoking, wine drinking and rapping I’d put on Laura Nyro, Joan Baez, Carole King or Joni Mitchell before I crashed.
