Vintage, Like Me

There is no substitute for time. It is only over time that we gain experience and if we apply what we’ve learned, wisdom. Some of us, who arrived here as part of the Baby Boomer generation (1946-1964), were born before our time. We came en masse, knowing that there weren’t many others who were like us. We grew up in a world in which we mostly felt safe and free to explore and experiment. We were more rebellious than previous generations and weren’t interested in participating in the warmongering that had gone on for generations before we arrived. Our mottos were Peace & Love and Sex, Drugs & Rock and Roll. The early arrivers, born between 1946 and 1957 are of the Pluto in Leo generation that wasn’t buying the control games and compliance to antiquated, life-sucking rules of social conduct that had become the norm. We came for the party! We came to be the change the world was awaiting. (Some of us more so than others.)

In the Mayan Calendar, the years from 1952 to 1972 were known as the 6th Day of the Planetary Underworld. This is the phase of creativity and flowering, when the potentials that were seeded in earlier phases of the cycle, which began in 1777, (in the midst of the American Revolution) bear fruit. Those of us born during the 50s, 60s and early 70s came in droves to manifest the possibilities foreseen by those who came long before. They didn’t call us the generation of Flower Children for nothing. For a million good reasons, many of us have long since given up of our dreams and visions for a better world.

Baby boomers have been around long enough to see society change in strange and oftentimes unfathomable ways, especially lately… Looking around, I know many of us are wondering what happened. Maybe it’s time to remember who we are and the energies we were steeped in, growing up. At a time when the world is quickly forgetting her magic, laying claim to the visions of a better tomorrow that we held, early on, might just help bring us all back to our higher sense of what could be.

I truly believe that my generation came to shake things up, break the societal spell of hopelessness and leave things far better than we found them. The world can only benefit from our stepping up and sharing what we know in our hearts to be true. As the old structures of dysfunction continue to break down, perhaps it is time to remember and embrace, once again, what we knew when we were young: Love and Peace and the Rock & Roll spirit can and do change the world. It’s our time to shine. Who’s with me?
