My Take on the '60s

Jim Morrison said once that when they (The Doors) finished a record, only then were they released to start thinking about the next one. When I finished Small Homes, I couldn't think what to do next. I'd sort of run the gamut of 9"x12' building books, each with about color 1000 photos, from Home Work to Small Homes. Retire? No way! I'm just getting warmed up.
About the same time there was an explosion of articles, TV specials, museum exhibits, and conferences rehashing "The Summer of Love." (Yes, I know I've written this before, but I'm further into it all now.)
Since my take on the years was so different from everything being written or presented, I decided to write my own version of the '60s. (I was there.) The project seemed to gather momentum as I proceeded. I started having fun. I hadn't looked back at those times in any sort of organized way, and I found myself not only marveling at what happened, but having new insights with the perspective of 5 decades.
Plus, the 60s weren't an abstraction for me. The concepts, the spirit, the new knowledge profoundly changed my life. (I just realized this now.)
Stop, children, what's that sound,
Everybody look—what's going down.
