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

and

without a flash of lightning

all forms of travel changed

and

got a little more complicated

i’m just saying

that i now

may

need a passport

but

i will find my way

to the big show

on time

no worries

who would expect

anything less 

from woodstock

after all?

1969

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?

on a downtown detroit day

discovering

beautiful little gems 

in so many

unexpected places

buoying our hopes

for a city

that has not given up

and is beginning

to thrive once again

in spite of

challenges

that once seemed

insurmountable.

“there is no power for change greater

than a community discovering what it cares about.”

i’ve found you’ve got to look back at the old things and see them in a new light. – john coltrane

‘it’s called a record player and it plays records that

go ’round and ’round and the music comes out,’

says one little grandie

to another

when proudly showing off

his new home in america

and

all of the treasures

both old and new

that can be found inside.
