getting to woodstock.


Music Festivals Woodstock Music and Art Fair August 1969

left my house

yesterday morning at 5:15am

flew out at 7:15am

headed to woodstock

for my brother’s upcoming wedding

very excited and happy for them

and then

in the blink of an eye


without a flash of lightning

all forms of travel changed


got a little more complicated

i’m just saying

that i now


need a passport


i will find my way

to the big show

on time

no worries

who would expect

anything less 

from woodstock

after all?


Arlo Guthrie: It’s incredible.

I heard the New York Thruway’s closed.

News Reporter: Closed?

This morning we heard that they were

backed down Route 17 with an eight hour delay.

Arlo Guthrie: Right. Well, the New York Thruway’s closed.

Isn’t that far out?

  1. Congratulations to the bride and groom! ❤
    I was going to be 14, so maybe you were 12 but boy, oh boy! My babysitter came back changed! It would have been crazy but the wildest "ride"ever!
    The photos, story of your traveling to the wedding just went perfectly together!
    I don't think my son (unless using time travel, would have been impossible anyway. . .) would have made it out: he would have thought he had died and gone to Heaven. 🙂
