While the mushroom cloud of the Cold War hovered over us, my sister and I carried on as kids do regardless of world events. Since the daily minutiae of life provides the magic for memories to MUSHROOM WILDLY—feed your head my nostalgic recollections of growing up during the ‘60s counterculture.
Serious, sentimental, or silly revelations set aside: you know better than to duck and cover under a school desk for protection against nuclear fallout.
An excerpt from the Prologue:
A newly published author in 2008, I prioritized increasing my visibility, while adding to my credibility, by binge-writing my way out of obscurity. Having grown up during the Sixties, I drew upon those experiences to write my first memoir, “A Mini Tribute to Twiggy,” and submitted it for publication at The Sixties Official Site. When the webmaster graciously invited me to write more, and offered to set up my own page there, I eagerly accepted and turned out a memoir every week for approximately two years, contributing 100 in total. I then composed over two dozen Retro ‘60s Flashbacks to add to my repertoire on my web page—“The Sixties with Eva Pasco”. I’m honored to be an integral part of the “Baby Boomer’s Top Choice Sixties Website” founded by Carl Hoffman.
The endeavor of dredging dormant memories from my childhood and adolescence enabled me to relive the past and celebrate the spirit of my father who passed from this world too soon.
The 100 memoirs in this collection include most of those originally published at The Sixties Official Site, give or take a few—cross referencing, inevitable. All have been edited, revised, and organized according to my logic of progression.
