when i was young, early teens in the 80's, the days of punk and stupidity, i became tired of all that was around me.this was when i saw my 1st dread, and asked him the typical, "how did ya get your hair like that?"his responce was, "stop combing it will happen"so i didfew weeks later was overjoyed to find dreads all over my head..and i felt more like me then id ever feltin 87 i attended my 1st rainbow gathering wich also changed my life drasticlybut about 2 years later, my girlfreind at the time and parents had pressured me into cutting my dreads to go to school,because all i knew of dreasds was dont comb they had congoed outta control, into 2 horns and a pillow in the back..but still i cried as they were cut and for a year felt hollow..thrust back into the babylon world i wanted out of..luckily at my graduation ..i broke my back ending up in a wheelchairwithin weeks of returning from the hospitol i started flying gliders
