Before Morticia, Carolyn Jones was a Beat Girl

Carolyn Jones Beatnik“I discovered that Yoga is actually a mental science. The way our social structure is set up it is hard for people to achieve the right attitude to live a full happy life. Too many people are frustrated, unhappy, disillusioned, tense, lacking of energy. They don’t have the right mental, spiritual, and physical conditions of existence. And they don’t know what to do with it. That is, most people don’t. But the people of the black-leather set, the so-called beat generation – I think they have learned relaxation. They beat bongo drums, and it is creative and at the same time a release of inner tensions. I am now a pronounced bongo beater.” – Carolyn Jones in 1959.
