There is this Moment in your Life when Real Events that You have Actually Experienced start to show up in History Books.
It is very strange and surreal when this happens and it makes you feel very important yet very old.
One of my husband's coworkers asked if her nephew could interview him for a history project.
They are studying the 1960's in history class and this kid was doing his report on The Woodstock Music Festival.
And my husband went to Woodstock. Yep. The actual Woodstock. His favorite band was Ten Years After. He and his friends brought sandwiches from home. They slept in the mud. Isn't that cute?
Here's his ticket as proof:
|There was so much chaos that the organizers just stopped collecting tickets!|
My husband is a teensy bit older than I am. I was too young too attend on my own and too old to be one of those cute kids that went with their parents...not that my parents would EVER go to Woodstock. Plus I lived on the other side of the country. And I didn't even know it existed until the movie came out. I loved the Woodstock movie. Have you seen it? My favorite part of the film is when Canned Heat performs. Here's a little clip that I think you might enjoy. Click Here

My husband doesn't have any pictures of himself and his friends at Woodstock. Unlike kids today, in the 1960's we didn't carry cameras or phones around with us everywhere. We just lived life for the moment, Baby...mostly undocumented.
But if you do like to look at photos of the 1960's you might enjoy the book "Hippie" by Barry Miles. The kids and I gave it to my husband a couple of years ago just to remind him of how super groovy he was...IS.
As I mentioned, I did not attend Woodstock. But if I had, I would like to have worn something like this:
|Once again made from this pattern. Long this time.|
|Communing with Nature.|
|Groovin on the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.|
|Grazin in the Grass. It's a Gas. Baby can you Dig It?|
