    Actually I am not sure what alternative people are.

    People are just people no?

    I would have Ahmedinajad, GW Bush, Ehud Olmert, Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin. then they would have debate on what is good and evil and what is right way to behave actually.

    Does anyone think they have more evil spirit with them?

    Pinoy for you!

    God bless

    I would love to sit down with Elizabeth Kubler Ross. She was a pioneer with her exploration of death, identifying the stages of dying nad helping many patients fact their own mortality. She wrote several books, addressing an area of “life’ that no one had tackled.

    “I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime. It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth, and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, that we will begin to live each day to the fullest; as if it was the only one we had.”

    John Lilly was also a fascinating, alternative individual. Through his research with dolphins he contributed much to the study of consciousness. exploring the brain in depth. He invented the isolation tank, and was part of the counter culture in the 60′s. He wanted to see an era that would respect, and cease to kill dolphins and whales, “not from a law being passed, but from each human understanding innately that these are ancient, sentient earth residents, with tremendous intelligence and enormous life force. Not someone to kill, but someone to learn from”.

    Can I also have the Flower Founders? There’s room at the table for all. The “why” is obvious… (lol). Would you all come?

  3. Would it seems as though I was trying to kiss some serious ass if I invited…..



    And any other “alternative” flowers that would like to join in on the fest….I am quite a good cook!!!

    John Lennon … obvious reasons

    Albert Einstein – dont get much more alternative than Albert…

    David Suzuki – Environment activist..

    Spike Milligan – his views are surprising on most things

    Germain Greer – she has such an interesting persprective on life.

    Oh this was tough, but here goes.

    1. Bob Dylan- Because he is so socially conscious and I love him!

    2. Kishan Lal- Because he did a great service to Punjab and died an unknown.

    3.Richard Taus- A true hero who busted the CIA

    4.Timothy Leary- He would MAKE this dinner party

    5.Henry Thoreau- A total non conformist

  6. Leslie says:

    My guests will include:

    John F. Kennedy- very much an alternative person during his time.

    Barack Obama-as alternative as you can get in the USA apparently! Would love for him and JFK to get a chance to talk together and share with the rest of us.

    Kahil Gibran-bringing us thoughts and ideas for us to ponder and elaborate on.

    Picasso-gotta have an artist in the mix and very much an alternative person he was-cubism-abstraction.

    Mary Ingalls-a pioneer of her time and very much a survivor-filled with the spirit of living and life.

    Wish they could all come, but of course we can set a place for them in rememberance!
