The swinging 70’s…..Welcome my eminent peers
Having reached one’s biblical entitlement and several seasons beyond it is cause for celebration. Did we ever imagine looking in the mirror and seeing the corporeal decay when we strode across the roads of the world with agility and excitement, no!
We are among the privileged, we breathe and yet we have said goodbye to so many of our peers well before they reached our age, it is those to whom I dedicate my babble, my efforts at recalling the others who made impressions on our lives yet are no longer able to see them…Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends….
We have all had close shaves, well before hipsters…that tissue twixt life and death. The Life Force that drives us, the spiritual tonic that we all hold to our lips from time to time. It is surely the intergenerational joys that give rise to our being and our continuing to being.
