The main setting for the novel I am currently writing is San Francisco in 1967. If I could go back in time and chose a time and place to live, this would be it. Young people were on the precipice of a new world order, and social change was the norm. Hippies wanted a different way of life with less consumption. Visions of Utopian society and cosmic oneness were hastened by use of LSD, along with deep questions about God and the meaning of life. My story takes place in Haight-Asbury, which was a low rent district close to Golden Gate Park. The time period is a few months leading up to the Summer of Love.
