My family & childhood set to the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun" -
*1946, Ocean Beach, San Francisco - my aunt & mom as a toddler
*1968 to mid 1970s Lots of California shots: California Coast, Golden Gate park near Hippie Hill, Sunset District in San Francisco and then on to Europe: Mediterranean in Greece, our trailer, Venice, Rome and more.
It ends (about 1974) at Tilden Park in Berkeley, where my family (me in striped pants, mom in maroon turtle neck, dad in mustache, sister is cute little brunette) and friends are spending the afternoon frollicking and hippie dancing.
When that day ended in Berkeley, our van wouldn't start. Maybe it ran out of gas? So the women - my mom and her friend Priscilla - hid the men and kids behind some sort of shed and put out their thumbs to catch a ride. A car with two men screeched to a halt. And then, to the dismay of the guys in the car, out piled a crowd of men and children from behind the shed.
