(‘Waking up’ with Bob and The Beatles in the sixties was something else)
The one I grew up in from 1949 to 1970 thereabouts. It was a very exciting time following the bleak Depression and WW II. The ’50s were somewhat drab, but they were a safe and fun time to be a kid. The sixties was a wonderful time to develop and open up one’s consciousness. Rock and Roll, The Beatles, books, increased energy and mobility, and a profound increase of freedom and possibilities following the more static, stable ’50s. No question the sixties represented the early peak in Western civilization, too. No, I could not have been luckier in terms of the time born.
