Another Decade? Monday Mural


Another Decade? 
Mural from Another Age
Humphrey and Jimi

I saw this rather battle-scarred message on a wall by a parking lot in Dinkytown near the University of Minnesota campus.  Although the mural has seen better days, it harkens back to a different period of time, although the message, "Give Peace a Chance," and "Make Love Not War," are dreams of major importance.

  1. It looks like Humphrey is giving the peace sign. If he had been a little less loyal to LBJ and embraced the pace movement, he might have been President. What a difficult set of circumstances he faced in 1968, and he was such a deserving and inspirational (at least to me) leader.

  10. Man, that is going back a long way. RedPat says those were the good old days? Surely not. I remember them as extremely difficult and painful.

    Thanks for your comment about my plans for my blog. I know that you open multiple new blogs for your extended visits elsewhere, but I don't think it would work for me. I don't want the hassle of a fullscale Florida daily blog. I am content to show only occasional Florida photos and keep the rest focused on Hartford. But, we all think differently, don't we?

  11. Jimi I recognized, but not Humphrey. Love the Rubber Soul letters extolling Make Love Not War. Still a laudable goal though now further from being attainable than it was then. Thanks for contributing to Monday Mural.
