Theme: Hippie Day 124
I couldn't really think of what to do for this theme, but I just decided to put a flower in my hair and snap some shots. I'm not a flower child or love child, and my parents were not hippies. However, I did spend some of my childhood during the hippie era, and I always thought the hippies seemed pretty cool. I love the music that was born during this time, and still love the listen to artists such as, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Van Morrison, James Taylor, and Cat Stevens....just to name a few.
I was born in 1968 when so much was going on in the United States. I came into this world during the Vietnam war and the Civil Rights Movement. In fact, I was born six days after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. There was a curfew in effect when my parents drove to the hospital for my birth.
I feel lucky to be a child of the 70s and a teen of the 80s. As a child, I played outside until dark, rode my bike, acted out movies, listened to my 45s, and made make-believe lands in the woods. During my teens, music became my sanity, and I spent a lot of time with friends. There were no cell phones or internet, and I sometimes wish my kids knew what that was like. Well, times change quickly and I love the time I have had so far. Here's to peace:))
I've been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one. And I believe it could be, someday it's going to come.
