It was the time of flower power, communal living, and VW buses. Ruby (she wasn’t Moonbeam then). left home in New Jersey for San Francisco
in 1965 with just her beads and mocassins. Uncle Earl (his real name was Elmo) picked her up on the Jersey Turnpike and two weeks later they were living in The Haight.
Earl was a hippy back then—-an Italian Hippy? Hey's, maybe's that's an oxymoron, but Earl certainly qualified for the second part of that description--you know, the word right after oxy . .?
Peace and love reigned--until Earl discovered LSD and free love. He was an avid crusader for both, and that's when Ruby had enough. She took her three children--Eternal Blush, Harvest, and Spirit--and left for Los
Who’d of known she'd land a leading role in Hair at the Aquarius on Sunset? And become Moonbeam?
