A blog about food, and a little about reading, and some sewing, and I might even knit something.
Were you a Hippie? I just can't picture it....but just in case Groovy.
Me too! Love the photo.
LOL! What an opposite memory it conjures up for me: the smell-spewing, priest-swung "burner" during Mass in Catholic school days (daze?) gone by! PEACE! (<-- click)
My husband, John is a martial artist, and we have quite an asian flavor in the household, so incense is a nearly everyday occurance.. but we use Japanese incense from a company that has been making i for hundreds of years... it is amazing stuff.. try going to www dot shoyeido dot com. You cannot believe the difference..
I wish incense didn't make me sneeze my brains out because I think it would make me feel zen to burn it. That is one cool n spooky picture.
I'm growing the ponytail I never was allowed back then!
Groovy, Peace, and Flower Power! The only incense I've ever smelled is at Mass. As kids, my friends and I always liked it. I have no idea what type of incense it is though. Must have been absent that day in class! :-)
its so ca~
Great picture Pam!
Great photo! Thanks for the reminder that I have a drawer somewhere in the house with a stash of incense. It reminds me of fall. Thanks for sharing. Stacy
Mmm hmm. We can't smell what's really in there....
You know I said I was never a hippie and never wore bell bottom jeans. Then I found a picture my father-in-law took of my husband and myself and there I was in bell bottoms. Guess I shouldn't say "never say never."Sam
I miss those hippie head shops.
I love incense too.....some :)Not all..And I am catholic..and remember that incense very well..since I have smelled it even recently:)I think I am too old for the shops you mention:)But I wore and wear bell bottoms:) Cute post!
Thankfully, I don't remember the 60s - because I wasn't there.
Husband just said to me this week that it is time to start burning incense again. I'm a frankincense and Myrrh fan.
Very cool picture!
those were the days...
I light them in my house almost daily - I love them!
Incense? It's still used? Times are not changing. Love your soup from the previous post.
I love it too! That is a great shot!
gurgle gurgle gurgle"What, Mom?"[cough cough]"No, that's just incense."(I might have fractured a law or two as a younger person.)
A lot of people don't remember the '60's, and they WERE there.Loved those head shops. One of my favorites from my youth is still there, in Ashland, Oregon.Rare Earth.More of a boutique shop, now, but with a hint of the history.Mike
Far out! I love incense. Head shops, soapstone carvings, Freak Brothers magazines. The 70s were heady times. :)
Alas I have no hippie head shops in my youth. But I love the image of you as a hippie!
frankincense and myrrh....reminded me of one of your funny stories from long ago.
Sounds like you would fit right in with my family. My parents used to live in a school bus on a commune!! You should see those pictures.
if you ever decide not to teach - you should shot. You are a great photographer!
