“Flower Power”

Usually when we hear this term, we are apt to think of the late ’60s and early ’70s, along with the peace and love movements, Woodstock, Monterrey and other rock festivals, hippie communes, protests and protest songs, “turning East,” transcendental meditation, posters of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Arlo Guthrie, Jr., Pete Seeger, “Alice’s Restaurant,” the music of Donovan, especially “Mellow Yellow” and “Sunshine Superman,” and Scott McKenzie’s “San Francisco.” While we might not have experienced the creative genius of some of the aforementioned artists, we have indeed experienced “flower power” with flowers from Easter, funerals, weddings, the First Holy Communion and May Crowning and the Pro-Life carnation sale. The bright flowers offered a splendid contrast with an unwelcome abundance of many cool, gray days of April and the early part of May. Whether or not we agree with the original “flower power” ideas and events, at least they offered some type of vision.
