Good Friends, Good Food, Good Music
By Patrick Jones
One of the things I’ve been enjoying the most about Prescott College as of late is the friendly community of like minded individuals who enjoy intellectual conversations over good food. There’s always a couple of musicians at every outing, so jamming on an acoustic guitar with a flutist, a banjo player, or even a charango player has become a regular event for me. The food always consists of good vegan or vegetarian food because everyone attending is conscious of the diet habits of others, even if they don’t follow them themselves. The best thing about these little get togethers is the amazing conversations we have. Topics range from the philosophy of consciousness to the evolution of religion and the heard mentality, from issues of basic human rights to war and imperialism, from elitist conspiracies and the new world order to a peaceful counterculture revolution, no topic is taboo and everyone approaches the conversation with an open mind. It’s almost as if I can feel the expansion of my consciousness throughout these interactions. I’m exactly where I need to be.
