Woodstock: 40 Years.

I love everything about the 60's. Especially the clothing, music and the peace revolution that happened. I love Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. My door in college was covered with photos of hippies, Woodstock fliers, Martin Luther and Bobby. I rarely was without a headband across my forehead and honestly believed I would bring back the 60's hippie. One of the first gifts Leif got me was the Woodstock documentary. I have watched that dvd so many times. I love it. I wish I had been a teenager during the 60's. So many great things happened. Changes that have made such a difference. And music has never been as great as it was then.

I am so excited that today marks 40 years since Woodstock. I am celebrating! I hope you do too:)
Be sure to look up some live footage of performances. They'll blow your mind.

I agree with you about wishing I could have been a teenager during the 60's. What an amazing period of time in American history. I seriously need to check out the Woodstock documentary.

They've been having specials on Vh-1 Classics all week about Woodstock, and showing some of the performances. The music was awesome.

I'm more of a 70s era person (even though the 60s fashion is hot), especially the music and the art. My favorite picture of my mom is one that she took in 1975/6 (I can't remember the year exactly), and she is wearing her hair in t his huge afro, a halter top, some skinny jeans, and these platform shoes.

Nothing beats the music of the 60's. It had the power to move people.

There was a great Woodstock documentary on the History Channel last night. Live performance scenes were amazing. It kept the hubby and I up way past our usual bedtime!
