Sleep on the top of the world in a Washington fire lookout
Actually, that sounds like fun.
Kerouac invoked to spark up a rather prosaic remembrance:
This must be the place: ‘We will get by, we will survive’
Bonus: Jerry Garcia.
Kerouac invoked to camouflage the fact that this writer knows little about the era about which he's writing and is also a Millennial snob:
Commentary: Baby boomers sell out 'Summer of Love' for cheap T-shirts
I get chills every time that I hear Jimi Hendrix play “The Star-Spangled Banner,” or when I watch Richie Havens tapping his foot and hearing him singing about finding freedom. I am not a baby boomer, of course, but I know about the Woodstock Festival in 1969. That said, I’ll pose a question to boomers (or members of that generation who were once hippies): Why did you sell out?I can answer that question. We "sold out" so we would have enough money to pay off your exorbitant student loans. You know, the ones for which we had to co-sign? The ones you can't pay yourself because you needed $200,000 for some gaggle of professors to teach you how to write gormless dross such as this.
Also, I'm glad you "still get chills" when you hear a digital recording of Hendrix. Some of us Boomers get chills because, in the rainy morning in upstate New York, we recall that it was actually chilly.
