Hello, Paula Gaon here, Libra Sun, Cancer Rising, Aquarius Moon. Nice to meet you. I'm one of many aging BabyBoomers scratching my head and wondering where the time went and why I still feel so confused. That planned career never came to fruition, and earning a living is just a necessary chore. A few years ago, after that proverbial mid-life crisis-which I prefer to think of as an extended adolescence, and my mother's advice, decided to get back to artwork-ie clear out the accumulated cobwebs and neurosis and bring to light all that's been gestating the past 30+ years. So here it is. Look forward to sharing a few ideas and images with you! Come over & rap with us:

Has It Really Been Almost 40 Years?

To Woodstock's 40th Anniversary 15 August 2009

Can you believe it? We're coming up on Woodstock's 40th Anniversary.
I sure can't believe it. Weren't we just laughing at our parents' reactions
to some of the songs, if they caught on at all? It was so obvious to us that
their generation had made a total mess of the world and couldn't possibly
understand such a phenomenal event of peace and love. What happened?
We're too young to be this old.

Where were you in August 1969? I was a minor, still in high school, too far
away and broke to have made it there. Even if I'd tried, my parents would have
sent the "Pigs" after me. None the less, had plenty of fun the next couple of
summers at the "Woodstock Spinoffs". But after all this time, can't help but
wonder what the Original Woodstock was like.

Were any of you there? Got any pics or stories to share about Woodstock itself or the era? Let's hear it! And here's a little added fun whether you were there, not yet born, still crawling around, too young or too old. Follow this link to take the Woodstock Trivia Quiz. And let it all hang out!

Peace & Love,
