John Lennon quote – The Sixties

‘The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had.   It wasn’t the answer, it just gave us a glimpse of the possibility’    John Lennon.

    Bushka is right – there is something special about that photo. It and the quote bring back so many memories. As I’m a little younger (!), I wasn’t gadding about like you but as my father was in A Hard Day’s Night and doing episodes of so many ’60s series, I felt there was something special and different about the decade.

      Good morning dear Sarah….wow how cool was that to have your father be part of such a classic film – A Hard Day’s Night….I can remember seeing the film in London….and yes there was something very special and fresh about that time…..Janet.x

    Fantastic photo Janet!! The quote is perfectly suited to the photo, and the photo is lively and fun. In 1964 there weren’t a lot of women on scooters, I think you two were ahead of your time and ready to zoom forward in more ways than one. 😀

    Your photograph is iconic – perfect actually reminded me of gigi. Awesome time, don’t you wonder what John would have thought about today’s events.
