on Vortex I
I was at Vortex I, a 20 y/o college kid, very much against the vietnam war but also wanting to get out of portland to the Governor's "party at McIver" that weekend. I remember the long, dusty walk into the park, the aroma of pot everywhere, the 24/7 music and dancing, the amazing oatmeal, and most of all the incredible commraderie, and "good vibes" with everyone, even the police around the perimeter of the park. I don't remember seeing or hearing about any incident of violence or even the threat of violence. It was an innocent, nieve time and I don't think it could ever happen in this day and age, for so many reasons......I think that's so unfortunate.
