Thanks for this reminder Mags,

I think we (those of us from a certain period) often need this reminder. That we did live in a unique time, where labels and attitudes were changing fast. A lot of analysis, opening up, loosening up if you will. Then it fizzled
But there were valuable lessons learned and insights gained that are uncommon in today's culture. So it's good to try to relight that candle when you can...........
