Merry Christmas, a little late, but the sentiment is just the same. The day after Christmas is needed just for some time to gather some thoughts and write them down. I really needed some thinking time this year and it has been so hard to get lately. This is my first chance to get my thoughts caught up with my heart. This will be a short post, but maybe it will resonate with some.
I have been listening to the 30th anniversary concert for Bob Dylan at Madison Square Garden in 1992. I fight back the tears as I listen to so many that made the music I grew up with in the 60s. “I was so much older then, I am younger than that now…” you know the rest.
Reflecting on today, and where we are in these United States and in many places in the world, I cannot help but think that the 60’s, the messages, the battles for rights for those shut out, and the rejection of the leadership that wanted power and all that went with power…I cannot help but think that maybe all of this was wasted on the generations that followed. So many missed what the 60s were all about. This is so clear today.
Take care and may the new year be better for all of us.
