Twiggy

With the elections came many memories of the 60's. And depending on how old you were then, there are things that stand out. I loved the clothes. the short skirts, and the makeup was fab! The Beatles sang and we fallowed the beat...the fashion, the Polyester...no more ironing. In all the makeup and style was the War, the endless body counts. Bobby Kennedy was our hope for a better future....the endless unrest within the Black communities. In all this was Twiggy, and I was skinnier than her....the good times! I was a little housewife in Southern California, living in a really pretty Apt with a pool & seeing my husband off to work each day and trying to have babies. It was a perfect storm and at the center was war and fear....some things never seem to change, the people change, and we watch with hope for a better future.

You are right! I turn to domesticity and find peace in the center of many storms!
Twiggy! What an icon!

How interesting to read your post...so many things have NOT changed... a new war...black communities still have their problems...maybe different now, but not all (Saw Cris Rock on TV last night, he makes light of a lot of heavy issues with humor)...
People who hate America...probably more than then...
The collage is interesting or is all just an ad...?
