Yup, yup, yup. This describes me perfectly. It’s truly a state of being and always has been, since I was barely in my teens, hence the moniker eternal hippie/rockchick. (sic) Have you noticed, the word “hippie” has taken on some less than complimentary connotations in the last few years? In the U.S., for example, some people refer to welfare bums as hippies. Just the other week, my husband and I exchanged unpleasantries in a grocery store parking lot with a man who almost ran us down with his truck. His parting shot? “Stupid hippies!”. But I digress….Bohemian is also a fashion style, commonly referred to as “Boho” or “Boho Chic” aka “Hippie Chic” . For more than a decade (late 70s to early 90s), my true self got buried under a corporate wardrobe; mostly two-piece power suits with wide shoulder pads. Thankfully, that phase ended and the real me came back. Still Bohemian after all these years!
