Love story in the mud
This may or may not mean something to you, but it's the 40th anniversary of Woodstock this week. I find it fascinating and cool because 1) I adore music; and 2) I was raised by hippies, though you'd never know it to look at them. The couple in the photo above were two of the half million people at Woodstock. That's not news.
What IS news . . . these people are still together. Married with kids and grandkids. Is that amazing or what? If you're interested in finding out more, go here or here.
And maybe it's not all romantic and wonderful--maybe it sucks to be the album cover from Woodstock, because it's a lot to live up to. Maybe true hippies don't exist well in the real world. I have no idea. But there's a book in there somewhere.
