So long and thanks for all the trips

He expanded the minds of many in the generation we now call boomers.
Owsley Stanley, famous for producing and distributing his own homemade LSD, literally by the bucketful, is dead
. Frankly, I didn't think he was still alive but sorry to hear he died, especially so tragically in an auto accident.

Purple Owsley, and its sucessor batches under different names was so pure, its name was invoked with reverence and it's ingestion considered almost a religious sacrament among those of us who sought the fringe edges of pure consciousness in those days. He was the heartbeat of peace and love in the 60s, before the opportunists and charlatans co-opted the hippie movement.

Rest in peace.
