Stonehenge, Salisbury, England. June, 1969

This memory from back in the days when you could walk up and touch Stonehenge. Actually move among the huge stones and sit upon them for photos. No longer, alas, as prohibitive fencing now keeps the rabble far afield of the monuments. I remember riding the public bus from our in-town digs, across the Salisbury Plain, and coming upon a rise -- wow! -- there was Stonehenge in front of us! My friends Debbye and Sarah and I made a beeline to the site and reveled in the accumulated centuries of spiritual energy. Nowadays, sadly, with the stones kept at a distance, like zoo animals, one can admire but not approach. Still, the wonder.
