Made in UltraFractal 5 from a standard Julia and enhanced in Photoshop CS. This is my tribute to the 60’s, a time of civil unrest, but also a time of experimentation in visual arts, music, cinema and every part of American culture. We may have dressed and acted funny but we were trying to be individuals, instead of following styles dictated by designers. We tried new foods, read new books and made friends whose backgrounds were exotic compared to our own.

There were some things about the 60’s that are best left behind, but many good changes and attitudes that I wish had not faded. I’m especially saddened that the same generation that protested injustices when they were young are now complacent about them. It seems like we have become jaded and comfortable with our lives and belongings as we aged.

“Incense and Peppermints” by Strawberry Alarm Clock

Good sense, innocence, cripplin’ and kind.
Dead kings, many things I can’t define.
Oh Cajun spice, sweats and blushers your mind.
Incense and peppermints, the color of thyme.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothing to lose.

Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns.
Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around.
Look at yourself, look at yourself,
Yeah, yeah.
Look at yourself, look at yourself,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah.

Tune-a by the cockeyed world in two.
Throw your pride to one side, It’s the least you can do.
Beatniks and politics, nothing is new.
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothing to lose.

Good sense, innocence, crippled and kind.
Dead kings and many things I can’t define.
Oh Cajun spice, sweats and blushers your mind.
Incense and peppermints, the color of thyme.

    memories anyone? (grin)

  • Yeah! This is my idea of wonderful music. Even my kids like it, and they hate most of the older music that I like.

    It looks wild and fantastic. I love the tribute, as there are many things in that period that shaped my way of thinking and my tastes in a lasting way.

  • Thanks! I guess you can take the woman out of the 60’s, but you can’t take the 60’s out of the woman. I’m embarassed when my sons see how we dressed and wore our hair when we were young, but so many of my attitudes were shaped by the 60’s and I hope that I don’t change as I get older. I think the lesson I value the most is not being afraid to speak my mind and to think for myself. My dad taught me to accept nothing without questioning it first.
