Although it has it's own story, that song is often played along side Vietnam footage, Woodstock etc. I wasn't born yet when it was made but I know it
well, I listened to a lot of that stuff, and Zep, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Hendrix etc in the 80's and 90's and it has always been one of
those songs that is iconic and emotion stirring.
I watched a Robert Redford retrospective earlier,which included interviews from the 60's onwards, and so many times the things he said reminded me of
certain aspects of my own life and so many times did I consider that it was literally like watching Brad Pitt, the similarities are so intense, he
could be his father!
Anyway, I watched a bit of 'The Way we Were' afterwards, which is a movie he starred in in '73. I had watched the movie before in the 80's probably
or 90's but today, even though busy so just seeing bits here and there, all the bits I did see were so 'deja vu' to me it was uncanny, from the name
on the bottle of wine, I have been researching this name and the area for years, to the exact things he said and situations in the movie that stuck a
chord. It was kind of weird, but nice weird, it made me smile.
Which got me thinking about life sometimes giving messages and answers in the most natural way. The expansion rate of the Universe is accelerating,
the rate of human evolution is accelerating, the tech advances are accelerating, Earth is in a natural phase of accelerated warming, the last time the
sun was in the position it is in now in the galaxy, dinosaurs roamed earth, there is talk of the 'quickening'.
Perhaps there is something that makes us more 'tuned in' in certain positions within the galaxy, or something from within our magnetosphere or outwith
The recognition of the 'Age of Aquarius' showed a shift in consciousness in the late 60's early 70's IMO. Things are cyclical, from the galaxy, to the
solar system, the Earth and to all and within. The nature of reality was certainly to the fore in the music of the day of such an era which IMO was
dumbed down since but is again surging, reawakening the consciousness of the sensitive.
There is 'something' going on. Hopefully that 'something' will be made good.
