Cover of I am the Bubble Make Me the Sea by Zady Lemmon, 1968.

In the 1960s, Lemmon and a small group of spiritual seekers gathered in Seattle with the understanding that they’d reincarnated in that time and place in order to help usher in the Age of Aquarius. They were all strangers in this life but, in their eyes, companions from previous lives.

Lemmon wrote it in 1968, in the middle of the great cultural transformation (frequently and unfortunately oversimplified as “that Hippie thing” these days) that reshaped America forever. She did this as someone who had, ever since her childhood, believed that she was not only going to witness a vast change in the human landscape but was going to play an important part in it.

There’s a lot of research left for me to do. A lot more writing. Today, however, I just want to share a piece of Lemmon’s writing and to ask you, dear readers, to try to transfer your consciousness back to 1968, when all of our modern world was still just a Schrodinger cat waiting for humanity to open its box and decide if it was dead, alive, or something in between.
