Hi folks. This journey started, for me, with the introduction of color TV. Yes, that was a long time ago for some of you. For the old folks like me… it was only yesterday.
You see, the color TV brought the world into our living rooms. Soon, everyone believed that what was happening on TV was REAL. Back then in the 1950’s and 1960’s most television was LIVE and broadcasts like the moonshot were LIVE. The moon shot had taken place in 1969 and our family didn’t get a decent color TV until almost 2 years later.
Then a fellow by the name of Erich von Däniken dared to challenge the world with his astounding and provocative evidence of Nazca Lines and strange monoliths and bas relief sculptures that provoked most of us into the strangest thoughts of our young lives. Our parents “pooh-poohed” the whole idea. Yet, it persisted for many of us through the decade. Along with Star Trek our imaginations were spurred forward as we dreamed that all of it… someday… would become our reality.
