(Raggedy is happy because she's just found another gem ...)
a leftover of the seventies: part flower child, part feminist, part
daydreamer — and I love both what and who I am. I am grateful for the
good that life has to offer; and I accept the bad that is part of living
My life rests on four pillars providing me with strength and happiness: love, nature, music, and literature.
make sure that I won’t run out of a nice song to sing, I keep blogging
away, posting the songs that were a part of my life when I was as young
and lighthearted as I never will be again. Hearing these songs brings back a touch of the old magic that defined the 60′s and 70′s. I
consider myself lucky having been young during that era.
other reason why I invest so much time into this blog thing is simply
to preserve the music of the 60′s and 70′s. I want to keep the music
playing so that it won’t disappear into oblivion. I want the artists to
be remembered for their contribution to an era that will forever be
remembered for the most contradictory reasons: There was that war —
bitterly fought — but senseless. There was a movement that showed the
world the power of the most beautiful flower: love. There were
courageous women fighting for their rights, and there were those who
tirelessly fought for civil rights to be all inclusive. There was
domestic terrorism in my home country, illustrating what cruelties young
minds gone mad with the wish to change society were capable of
inflicting on their fellow humans. But there also was Woodstock!
more could it possibly take to make these days unforgettable? Well,
one more thing maybe. And that would be meeting your soulmate on a
Saturday night while hanging out at your favorite disco!
