After I had moved to Haight Ashbury a man and his crew came through looking to stage a "Hippie Wedding". I was the bride and some unsuspecting young man in my same situation was the groom.
We went to Golden Gate Park, put flowers in our hair, had a staged hippie wedding where many photographs were taken and we were told there was a documentary being made by this gentleman with the crew.
Turned out - the gentleman's name was Shel Silverstein. No, I never saw the documentary or pictures. But everytime I see some sort of documentation of the 60's in Haight Ashbury - I take a look to see if I see myself.
Have a Happy Weekend All !!!
God says to me with a kind
of smile, "Hey how would you like
to be God awhile And steer the world?"
"Okay," says I, "I'll give it a try.
Where do I set?
How much do I get?
What time is lunch?
When can I quit?"
"Gimme back that wheel," says GOD.
"I don't think you're quite ready YET."
Thank you Manuela Wutschke for bringing Shel Silverstein back into my life though your posting of a poem on Facebook written by him.
