MY JOURNEY: A STORY FROM THE PAST…& THE PRESENT…

There is a story behind my new blog header.  An ornately designed VW bus takes me back to the 1970s, and to the era that really defined me.  The clothes, the music, and the hairstyles.  On FB, I took one of those tests, and the answer for What Decade Are You?:  the 70s.

Not only did I drive VW bugs, but I also had a VW bus.  Mine didn’t have the flowing designs, but I loved it nonetheless.

Recently, I included a very colorful VW on my Snow Sparks blog header:

I do love many things about life in the present, of course.  Blogging, social networking, and Amazon Prime and Netflix.

Back in the 70s, we only had three or four channels on our TV sets.  And sometimes, the rabbit ears antennae did not work out too well.  But then again, we didn’t know any better.

What do you love about the past…and the present?

  1. What I love about the past: my ’70s childhood had a bit of innocence about it …. kids could go by themselves places, play in the yard, meander on bikes, do their own thing for hours. Now there’s helicopter parents and kids are connected with devices. It’s very different. I guess as an adult I like today’s technology but I’m glad I grew up before it too. 🙂

    • Thanks, Susan, there was definitely something sweet and innocent about growing up in the past, and I’m glad my kids were not bombarded with social networking and all those trolls online.

      I do enjoy the benefits of technology as an adult, though.
