a woodstock moment – 40+ years later

on a whim, a young duo went to the legendary festival

only to be captured in a memorable image

two in half a million:

bobbi kelly and nick ercoline greet the dawn

on august 17, 1969.


“this is the way to hear music, i think,

surrounded by rolling hills and farmlands, under a big sky.”

and 

it was important for us,

the americans,

to proudly represent our country

with our own

unique

belly dance act.

it was truly

a night to remember.

day 1

room 1

visited a pub

in a little village

filled with

friendly people

from near and far

then 

slept above it

in a tiny room

while beautiful irish music 

kept on

playing below

dancing me into sweet dreams.

i really love not knowing where I’m going.”
