1960s

A time of major changes and shifts

CL Gillmore

 

Excerpt from the novel, A Friend Request by C L Gillmore.

The late 1960s and early 1970s… what a different era. A time of major changes and shifts… dress, music, sex, drugs, politics. Everything. It’s hard to explain if you weren’t part of it, a witness to it, there to experience it. And if you were, it stayed with you, got in your blood and became a part of you… who you are.

For me Champaign, Illinois, Parkridge Apartments, the band, and Rose happened a lifetime ago. I seldom let myself wander around in that lifetime I left behind nearly forty years ago. Now I lived in the real world. I was not a dreamer. I didn’t let my practical ass get bogged down in what might have been. No point. Eventually I moved on. I had to.
