I was born right smack in the middle of the 1960′s! I was born alone… taken to a home… it wasn’t on the range… it was wherever… the sack fell during the roam finding lots of storms… Alone in a land… that wouldn’t share a song… it was sad… til I fell on my back… thrown into a system… no one belongs… it’s no wonder I got the music in me… there were a lot of homes… I am grateful for the ones who shared their music and songs… while my parents were waiting to be born… they were born and found and luckily music was a solid ground… how lucky was I to still be around.
I don’t have any memories of news events from that time. I was alive when RFK was shot, flower power was going on, we walked on the moon… but I was simply to small… to recall if what I saw was memories or imagination from all I have read.
The first news event that I remember watching was third grade/Mrs. Clayton’s class. She stopped teaching and turned on what I believe would have been the Watergate Hearings. It didn’t make much sense to me then… I wish I would/could remember how she explained what it all mean to us… it would be years until I actually researched that event.
I don’t remember the war coverage, protests or even the end of the Vietnam War… I was a kid and I was lucky at that time to be riding my bike which was the coolest thing to do after we ate dinner so I missed the news.
My experiences of the 60′s came from the music…when I was a kid I sang the songs… I still sing them today… time has changed and educated me… it would be years from those beginning days before I understood more of the day… the times… and what was going on in their minds…
Lots of things came out of the 1960′s… I am grateful for the music… the people who believed in this land… and the change they brought on with their bands.
I didn’t set out to write this post… but I guess my brain and fingers had other plans… my connection to the tunes of the sixties… I believe I listen… trying to understand… why I could have been beaten and thrown away like a (what)… so I leave you today with of course some more tunes… of my beginning days!
Jimi Hendrix “All Along the Watchtower”…
The Band ” The Weight”…
Crosby Stills and Nash … “A Long Time Gone”…

Something to think about: The very existence of flame-throwers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.
