On The Road Again

March 31, 1969

Dear Daddy,
I know you don't want to hear what I have to say, and I know you are going to freak out, but I have to say it anyway. I realize I have only been in college for two semesters, but I need to get out of here. My friends and I have decided to go to California. There is so much more going on out there and frankly it's where it's at. I have decided to drop out of college for awhile to find myself. I will be coming home next week to grab my backback, a few pairs of jeans and a few bucks for the road. Our friend is giving us space blankets so we can keep warm while sleeping under the stars. No need to worry, I am 19 now and can make adult decisions. I will be fine. See you next week,
Love and Peace,

Joyce: What a groovy chick! This letter could speak for our entire generation.
My blog is brand new and you'll be forever etched in my mind as the first to post a comment. Perhaps a plaque of some kind is in order.
