Society

I was born in the mid 1970's, a time when the changes of the late 1960's and early 1970's was uncomfortably settling in.  I came of age earlier than what one would normally due to the insecure and unstable nature of my life, by the time I was 13 I was a regular at the dance clubs and at parties so it is hard to give an exact age when I came to age.  Perhaps it would be safe to say at age 12 is when at the very least I was more in control over my agency in life.      

The society I was born into in the United States was not something I had a positive feeling about.  The age I was at left me feelings lost, while the films I watched seemed to convey this ideal life that was out of reach for someone with my economic and educational background.  It would be correct in saying that I didn't feel like there was a place in this society for me, and the lifestyle I would enter into, the underground scene  became home of a sort.  More to come...
