As a generation divides my two children from each other, I have found that my younger child has more in common with me than the elder. We enjoy similar music style and have like interests that bridge the 40 years between us. Thanks to my elder child for the refusal to have a political consciousness clipped I have an abiding interest in the social aspects of living in modern America, USA style. But as keen as my political learnings are, they remain moderately liberal and democratic leaning. It is the music that is renewing, with the old hits and band from 50 years ago still as vibrant for me as the new sound of today. So this is a start.
