Every generation has its challenges. Such was the case of the children of the sixties. It was a time of dichotomies. War/Peace, establishment/free spirit, long hair/short hair, marriage/free love, big band/rock and roll. You get the idea. ‘Live for the moment’ and ‘if it ain’t fun don’t do it’ became a couple of the mantras of that era.
The Children of Blueberry Hill is a feel good story about a granddaughter that finds and reads her flower child grandmother’s journals explaining in detail her experiences while growing up during that mystical sixties period in time. To put it into Pam Porter’s words, (the granddaughter), ‘Grandma made my generation look like nuns’.
Three generations of women discover that to be happy one must follow your bliss and not settle for what relatives or society thinks is acceptable for them.
Maybe some of us retired flower children need to share again that there really is no universal right and wrong, no black and white in life … no judgement. Then maybe we could all get along and ‘make love not war’. We might then start respecting each other as just another human being trying to learn how to be a more spiritual person; all the while, FINDING OUR THRILL on this wonderful earthly playground.
