Born at the perfect time. Got to enjoy the fruits of the huge economic up swing of the 50s and 60s. Probably the last generation that could manage to truly just do what they loved, be it English lit or Sanskrit studies and not have to worry to much about getting a job or finance or the future. One would be there when they looked for it. Obviously this is an exaggeration and many fell through the cracks and didn't get a life, but many many did where it would be almost impossible today. Got to experience the hippie generation. Good pay, good benefits, good retirement. Again an exaggeration, I know a lot didn't get this experience too.
