I know The Grateful Dead are considered the most prominent psychedelic rock band to surface from San Francisco during the Summer of Love. But, I gotta be honest— I feel like Blue Cheer’s bluesy inspired psyc rock sound has had a wider stretching influence into heavy metal and punk rock.
Maybe I’m biased since I’m an actress on a psychedelic time traveling hippie bus which mainly plays Janis, Jimi & Jerry. What I do know, is that I’ve been sneaking more Blue Cheer & Creedence Clearwater Rival (despite their down n dirty Southern rock style, they’re from the San Francisco’s East Bay [like me]) into the show.
I started harming myself when I was eight years old. And I didn’t stop until I was 18. I’m 19 now, it’s been a full year since the last time i cut or pulled my hair. it feels so good to be free from that. i got this as a reminder that i am beautiful and deserving of respect and kindness. why do i show it to everyone but myself?

I’m approaching my ten year anniversary being free from self harm. It’s not something I normally talk about (if at all). But I like this idea, not only reminding yourself you deserve kindness and love— but this invaluable bit of nonverbal communication to those who might also be in the midst of harming themselves.
You are beautiful and unique and I love you even though I’ve never met you, whoever you are.
