A quotation

Posted in Quotes

Counterculture cannot be crafted or produced: it must be lived. Where counterculture prizes pushing the boundaries of art, it prizes even more approaching life as an ongoing artistic experiment. Where counterculture values novel thinking, it strives most to express that ideation in the action of the moment. Where counterculture embraces spirit, it does not settle for periodic acknowledgment of divinity through the repetition of some arbitrary gesture, but instead attempts to live each day as a constant, dynamic expression of spirit itself. The artifacts of a particular counterculture are by-products, not end-products of countercultural living. –Dan Joy in the preface to Counterculture Through the Ages: From Abraham to Acid House
