Blogging Challenge – Day 7 – Time period in history

Hmmmm…. I am not sure about this. It’s been SUCH a momentous week in our South African history that I am really quite grateful to be around right now. I love our lives now, in this age of information and technology. 

When I was growing up, I just loved the stories my mother and her siblings told of growing up in Yeoville in the 40’s and 50’s. Stories of Saturday bioscope outings and comic swaps. Simple, safe fun. But their lives were not easy – 9 kids with working class parents. I am immensely grateful for the comfort of my existance now. 

If I absolutely had to pick another era though, I think I might have liked to live as an (American) hippie in the 60’s and 70’s… free love, Woodstock, counter culture, cool clothes, mother earth, hallucinogens… 😉
