I guess you guys already know that I'm big reader of books, sometimes even big, important books. The book I'm holding here, may not be one of those, but rather a forgotten gem that C. found for me at the magical Dump, one that I like to pick up and browse sometimes when I feel a little bit blue on the edges.
It's called I am Also You. It was published in 1971 and it contains images and thoughts of the 60s cultural revolution in America, a time, though naive and innocent, was also rather more hopeful and dreamy, than these sometimes gloomy days of ours.
Come to think of it though, the good old days resemble these bad new ones pretty closely: America is embroiled in a seemingly never ending war, the youth are turning away from the materialistic values of their parents, and seeking a new, simpler way of living, and technological advances engulf our lives with information. Go figure.
Anyways reading this book cheers my up (along with listening to Joan Baez and wearing a favorite dress from Heather), so I thought I'd share some of it's cliched wisdom with you.
(This is all there is to it.)
I love this image the best, it is as though they're a part of some alternative history.
Anyway over and out, off to pick more berries and work.
