Recently I made a trip out to, the long awaited, Bethal Woods Museum. It was an incredible place to visit and helped me to understand the time period....people, fashion, home life and political movements. What they believed, how they felt, what they saw. It was incredible!! I learn so much. While looking out at the field before me in awe of what had transpired some years ago, I saw two individuals gazing and talking among themselves and I just had to ask!! The two men gladly chatted with us and told us their stories. One of them was able to be at woodstock, the other was shipped off to 'nam. They have not seen the museum as of yet for, in theory, being too commercial but I hope they do go and relive a time period they helped history develop!!
