can't understand God,
you can't define God,
you can't contain God,
but you can _be_ God."
remember the 60s was a continuation of the energies of the Beat Generation-
-to truly understand the 60s you really should study the Beat Generation...so you might want to start there.

think back to the 60s I am reminded of a time of innocence and
youth, the coming of age, the possibility and the dreams.
This nation held a moment of opportunity within its hand.
Men and women rose up and strode forwards with new ideals and visions.
The movements, the vision, the new frontiers that began with that era still echo from that period today.
And I believe, the hopes of a generation who laid the seed of their dreams,
from Kennedy to King still call out to as challenge to us.
The innocence may have faded, but that doesnt mean the visions have to fade to silence too.
The world may be faster and less sensitive now, but the words, hopes and ideals of
that era still challenge us today, as Robert F. Kennedy said,
Those with the courage to enter the moral struggle, will find themselves with friends in every corner of the globe.
Maybe the 60s didnt end as they began,
but we are better because of those possibilities and the dreams dreamt within its short window time."

'Flashing on the Sixties'
by Lisa Law
Photographs by Lisa Law, forward by Ram Dass. The Sixties were a time of personal journeys, fiery protests, and revolutionary happenings...an extraordinary era. Through it all, photographer Lisa Law was snapping pictures of now-legendary friends, concerts, and gatherings. A remarkable visual record that captures the essence and energy of the Sixties as no other book. Newly reprinted with additional photographs, commentary and reminiscences from those there.
Publisher's Weekly November 28, 1987
In 1965, 22-year-old Law was living in a Los Angeles mansion where Andy Warhol, Bob Dylan and various musicians subleased suites. Joining this casual music scene, she took intimate snapshots of such stars as Lou Reed, John Sebastian and Janis Joplin, noting that "Perhaps because I was not a professional photographer and therefore not taken seriously by anyone, including myself, I was able to record some of the more relaxed moments from those days." In the 160 photos presented here, Law also captures be-ins,
antiwar protests, Woodstock and other memorable events.
Accompanying these nostalgic photos are reminiscences by Paul Krassner, Wavy Gravy, Allen Ginsberg and others, Law has produced a book of depth, beauty and impact-she has captured the heart of the '60s.
