Hidden within the archives of the mind, there lives the essence of the soul. Deep within the convoluted tunnels hide our fears, the music of our past, the dreams of yesterday, and our hopes for tomorrow. It is where the Id, the Ego, and the Superego learn to live in harmony. And as we journey through life searching for meaning in our existence, we eventually learn to nurture the child within.

"KALEIDOSCOPE OF BLUE" describes a time when this nation's young seemed to be lying their souls naked before the Almighty--bonding, searching--separately, and yet somehow together--the "Flower Child" and the "Soldier"--the "Activist" and the "Hippie".

And although life at times distracted her, it was love that kept her focused--she alone would walk her path.
