I hope this isn't too controversial an opinion, but for me, Woodstock is part of the landscape, something that happened against all odds a long time ago and can't ever happen again, kind of like the Beatles.

i'm sorry you missed out, Kevin. i had friends in the city consider going, but by the time it really seemed like a great thing to do, it was too late to travel.

All this music is my initiation to music, was in High School at the time, a waiter in Summer Camp in the Catskills. There were some plans to go to the Festival, but the camp put the whole camp on lockdown that weekend, no one was allowed to leave.

wow. lockdown. imprisoned at camp! they wouldn't be responsible for anything that happened to you..

the idea is the rejection of regret: living so that there will be none. that's what i've done, more or less successfully! :-)
