News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

1967 Summer of Love
« Reply #1 on: April 24, 2017, 08:48:12 »
Hello! There's so much stuff happening around the fifty years since the Summer of Love, and when we all became free loving super liberal people etc...I'm curious to know more about how the Summer of Love...

Was it just a US phenomenon that the modern media has seized upon for marketing?
Was there a counterculture happening in Kent, or was it really confined to the streets of London?
What was it like living in Kent at the time...the music of the time, foods, events?
Do we need a summer of love now, given how things are in the world?

I am hoping to write an article about it, and will of course credit anyone who wants to be! xx
