I haven't blogged in a while, so I thought I should at least write something now. These are some Rock and Folk songs by musicians who were popular in America in the 1960s, especially among younger people who were increasingly dissatisfied with how their parents' generation was running the country.

    Traveling a lot, thinking a bit and then taking some reading, what a joyous lifestyle! When here is free time for free disposal, stringing together the fragmental memories into pieces of writing works, share them with like-minded, it's kind of another sort of  luxurious treatment.
