Recently, Steve and I have had so many oportunities to let's say 'ponder' or' reflect' on some things, that keep coming up in our lives...like the music of the 60's, for example. So I thought 'it must be the time to do just that...think and write about it.' So, 'How did the great music of the 60's, change our world, Anyway?'. Isn't that a good question? Well, thank you...I thought it was a great question too. [Jan].
And then, when I got back online this morning, all primed and full of my very best 60's Hippie 'we can change the world, yes we can kinda thinking'...What did I find? Another post about just that, the music of the 60's and it's effects on civil rights...O.K., O.K. I get it, Universe. So, without waiting another minute, let's begin. O.K?
First, This is what I found this morning on .CBS NEWS. It reminded me of the way it was.
The music of the 60's was MY music...I was a teen age 'Hippie' then [Jan],and into civil rights, no war, free love and changing the world.and thought I could do anything I dreamed of. I loved the music of that time and it did inspire me to try to do just that...change the world. My Steve, was also into music way back then, and sure looked the part too....didn't he? We were all on a great mission. It was fun and exciting. My first hubby Ernie and Steve's wife Julie were too. This really upset all of our parents who thought the world was just fine.
