I also have strong feelings to the 60's but mine are not so happy. I have an aversion to VW buses, but I've ridden in them. When I hear certain 60's era music, I want to cry, especially Janis Joplin stuff. When I see stuff on TV regarding the hippy era, I feel uncomfortable but am fascinated.
The interesting thing is that I found my birth family about 7 years ago. My entire family is brushed with hippy paint. My grandparents were even responsible for a well known folkfest in Orillia. Of note is that I was born in the early 70's.
I do not know if any of this is significant. To me, it is a deep, internal feeling.
I also have strong feelings to the late 1800's era. I dont know if it was all of the heritage museums I went to as a child or watching too much Little House on the Prairie, but like some of you, I feel its more than that.
