Visions and Memories of Woodstock

Hippie dancing with flute by Bill Eppridge
Forty years ago, the memories of Bethel’s field were snapshots to some and moving frames and images to others. The photograph told so much then – and again now. Now …40 years later…what is left of this Woodstock generation: the baby boomers who professed ‘freedom to all’ and ‘freedom for all?’

This generation brought us women’s rights, civil rights, the peace movement, the beginning of the environmental movement, and the need to have healthier bodies and minds. Forty years later so many seem stuck in glorious psychedelic memories. Art and more accurate, photography, has documented this vividly. A black and white photograph mints your memory – as your mind was on a lucid trip when dancing alongside friends in the mud laden fields. So what is next for these aging psychedelic rockers…protecting the financial and medical stability for their children and grandchildren?
