Is it relevant?

Cover of Times They Are A-Changin

I became very excited about this blog as soon as the desire to begin struck me.  Of course after the initial paragraph I wondered for a brief moment,  is what I think and what I have to say relevant?  Being me, I dismissed that thought at once.   Naturally, its relevant because I thought it.  If it wasn’t relevant then the idea would never occur to me. 

How to begin is a problem.  So many thoughts and possible beginnings fill my mind.  However, so many thoughts are sometimes paralyzing so I must begin, even if it’s not at the beginning.

In the 60s, and a bit later during the feminist movement (which was a very good thing in so many ways),  women assumed the power.  They fought for all the things they had a right to, including allowing their breasts to swing freely.  Thus bra burning.  I was there and I wasn’t there.

I had gotten married in 1964 at the age of 18 just prior to women being liberated and as a dutiful American woman, got pregnant immediately, and had a beautiful baby girl by the time I was 19.  Not that it wasn’t what I wanted, but in truth no other option was shown to me.

Life continued on for me in the cookie cutter fashion of the late 50s early 60s until I grew up.  Growing up had nothing to do with age but with the times.  Bob Dylan said it best, “The Times They Are A Changin“.

I grew wings and in the parallel world to my marriage, life, and children, I began to fly.
