...Frank Zappa, "Flowerpunk"

We're going up to San Francisco this morning after a 45 year break.
 
The last time we saw the place it was full of hippies, nude love-ins and flower power. We were young and in love.


Jerry Garcia gave us a free concert in the park.....

The Hell's Angels guarded the sound truck.

Timothy Leary recited this poem:

 And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it
And it is all perfect, this is really it

Maybe the city has changed? Stay tuned.
