Hippies.. a word that is commonly used to describe holistic nutritionists. Do I mind? Not one bit! Am I actually a hippie? No. That being said, I secretly admire the days of rebellion and revolution.
What really distinguishes this generation. . . is its determination to act, its joy in action, the assurance of being able to change things by one’s own efforts. Hannah Arendt (1972)
Aside from the war, there is so much to love about the fifties all the way through to the seventies. This was a time of change, development, acts of freedom, music and movements. This is a time before blackberries, androids and iphones, ipads, laptops, HD television, facebook and twitter, tooney tuesdays and most of all the luxuries we have become dependent on today. Sure, it’s handy and evolution is wonderful but let’s not forget about going back to the basics once and a while. Home cooked meals, hand writing and mailing a letter (right), meeting up with a friend to gossip rather than texting (sometimes the wrong person, uh huh), tuning into rad hits, and simply taking time for yourself. Can you blame a girl for loving the sixties?
