Cream of the Planet

Sensual, Thoughtful, and Very Naughty

San Francisco

Music: San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair) by Scott McKenzie

Video Mix: Michael,Β CreamofthePlanet.com

Art can speak to each of us as individuals in different ways. At times, it can speak to many of us in similar ways. When this happens, art has the potential to tap into and release our collective unconsciousness into the world as a movement. The Summer of Love is one example, and Scott McKenzie’s song (written by John Phillips of the Mamas and Papas) is an anthem for that period. It seems they almost got it right. While that time has passed and the power of that release has subsided, it is a force that still simmers within us.

    Michael, a wonderful and sentimental post. Lovely video mix, and the photos/images are beautiful. I like your thoughts on how art speaks to us, it’s fascinating when we are moved by it. Please have a great Tuesday. ~ Mia

      Thank you, Mia…I always appreciate your reaction to my works. πŸ™‚ I collected these photos over several years living in S.F. and when visiting. I’ve wanted to share them for a while but was waiting for the right context to click in my thoughts. I have a few more related posts in draft that will hopefully expand on some of the meaning behind this post. Seems all my posts are intertwined in one way or another, ha! πŸ™‚

        You’re welcome Michael. You are quite talented, I’m glad that you shared the photos and video, I’m looking forward to the related posts. I like the idea of “intertwined”, sometimes I think everything connected by an invisible thread. Please enjoy your day! πŸ™‚
