Nestled between old and middle aged is a provocative generation who came of age during the second half of the 1960s. For most of their adult lives they wore a badge of honor for just being who they were, when they were. Never content to be images of the generation ahead of them, they predominated over a culture of youth.
But now the ranks of the “never trust anyone over 30” are looking over their 60 year-old shoulders into an ever accelerating hallucination. Many see themselves as youthful, while others feel the ravages of a weakened body and spirit. Communally they clutch their iPhones with the same zeal as their VW steering wheels 40 years past, and gaze down a new uncertain highway.
