Morningstar was an open commune. No one decided who could stay or go.

You immediately felt at home there.

This planet below your feet was yours to share.

Morningstar Commune, (Morning Star Ranch, The Digger Farm), was an active open land counterculture commune in (Occidental) Sebastopol near San Francisco. Morningstar was part of the historical changing society of young adults in the 1960's that traveled back and forth between the Haight-Ashbury and Sebastopol.

These flower children on these external links below are not the painted portraits of  ' Flower Children '  we see on television.
These human beings are the ones that fought hard for human dignity and were pushed hard by the law.

Morningstar &Wheeler Folks Online
If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder,
he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it,
rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in.
Rachel Carson Quote (1907-1964)

ego@morningstar
The delicate realm of being, wrapped in ones skin.
Your careful to caress the emotions of others.
To coax comfort.
To sway being across the mind.
The pleasant hello.
Swell the ego with love and comfort and let them walk free.
Have a nice day.

An Open Commune

Morningstar was an open commune. No one decided who could stay or go.
You immediately felt at home there.
This planet below your feet was yours to share.
No one pointed at the rules. Freedom was felt at the core of your being,
making you laugh and feel
delighted to be near another being.
The feeling one felt at Morningstar was not lost though time.
It has carried an emotion of well being in the hearts of all
who have felt the heart of an open commune.
+
Morningstar was an open commune.
Without possessions, what is there to worry about?
Without wealth, what is there to worry about?
If the land is open, there is no possession of land.
If you are bare with no possessions, what is there to possess.
Is there any point to argue over an object if you have nothing?
Simple being, simply being.
All you have are what your senses see and feel.
A basic life style.
The feeling one felt at Morningstar was not lost though time.
 

A Closed Commune
from Time Magazine
Part of the hippie ethic that evolved during the '60s was a communal warmth, the idea of an open and sharing brotherhood. But sometimes there just isn't enough to share. The 2,500 hippies who live in 16 pastoral communes around Taos, N. Mex., have begun slamming doors on newcomers. "When a transient arrives looking for a place to crash," says one communard, "we send him to a motel. We aren't even telling him how to get to the communes."

Already the communes are in sullen —and occasionally violent—conflict with the Taosenos. The prospect of a spring and summer invasion of new hippies has prompted local residents to form vigilante groups. Besides, an abnormally light winter snowfall ensures water shortages for the summer. Commune crops will be scarce. "If those kids show up here this summer," says one member of a commune in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, "we'll be the straights. We'll throw them out."

 MorningStar the Play

MorningStarr, the play,  an original historical musical by Nicholas Alva
about a ranch in Occidental in the 1960’s, the people who came to live there,
and their relationship with the surrounding community.

The Books

I have been organic since 1967.
This is Tomas cleaned up.
Laurel Rose had cleaned me up, cut my hair and bought me these clothes and shoes. I was bit ragged and wild looking when I met Laurel Rose in Chicago (1968).
