I sought to depict the calendar decades that have encompassed my life, and do so using six or fewer words. The goal was to capture the essential aspects of the decades that surrounded me, not particular episodes of my personal life.
1960s: Peace and Love amidst great unrest 1970s: Environmental Movement, Gas Shortages, Inflation Incline 1980s: Berlin Wall, Tiananmen Square; no '1984' 1990s: Globalization flourishes; Dotcom Bubble 2000s: Crashes! Nine-Eleven, Financial Markets 2010s: Polarization, 24/7 Political Press; Obama to Trump 2020s: Coronavirus Pandemic
Has the centripetal force of the 2020s already weighed upon us with nearly nine years remaining? So it seems to me.
Pick one decade and provide your six-word description in the comments, or critique mine. Characterize more if you wish, or simply ‘like’ my post and I’ll know you dropped by. Thanks for the visit.
P.S. I didn’t exceed the six-word goal in the 2010s, I simply used numbers that I didn’t count as ‘words’. 🙂
