The reason I stayed away were pretty simple, although I hid them from myself at the time--my family needs me, I am in a play etc.

In truth I stayed away because anytime I was seen was a time I could be determined to be fucked up.  Any time I was seen was a time I was in danger of being started over.  I don't think I took a full breathe till the program closed down and headed back to Florida.

Oh yeah, and I always hated it there too.

In 1973 after I graduated I didn't stay away. Sure I quit going to the old timer meetings, because I was finding my self. I hung around with a lot of old timers, especially at the guy's house in St. Pete. I use to go to many gatherings that were held often at the Per....'s home in Tarpon Springs. That is where I met my husband. He was playing "Dust in the wind" on his guitar on the steps of the house, and I knew we were going to be married. I lived with Robin and some other girls in our own apt. A lot of us would go to the Collisium to ballroom dance. We had a great time there. We were the first couple to marry and have a child in 1976. A lot of seed kids went their own way, yet some of us still stayed in touch. Now with this forum, I have been able to be in contact with some of my friends whom I didn't know where they went. So again, I wouldn't say I stayed away. Maybe from the building, but not the friends I made and loved very dearly.

Jules was one of the Oltimers I used to run around with, for me it was not so much of "staying away" as it was kind of drifting away. The Seed was the focal point and there really was not a whole lot of thought to any sort of follow-up after you gradutated, I looked at this as one of the major areas that the Seed could have done something better, so for whatever reason, people changed, groups fractured and people sometimes moved away, got married, you lost touch and life went on and then Poof, the Seed closed and if you were lucky enough to keep a few close friends you were doing better than most. I can remember so many times wondering "what happened to this person or that person". I am grateful to be able to re-connect again to several fellow Seedlings that I knew then and have gotten a chance to know again, thanks Greg & Ginger!

Well, they worked on that aspect of it in Straight and WWASP and CEDU are doing the same thing. Trust me, buddy, you did NOT get the shitty end of that stick!

To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical.
