Woodstock was 40 years ago now. But its spirit lives on.
What was Woodstock about? Creativity, unfettered freedom of expression, music, people from all over coming together to do whatever felt right.
So nine women - OK not the huge numbers at Woodstock - came together like the Muses -see picture.
OK a bit like the muses - you get the idea ........Yes, we did dance!
But BLOGSTOCK..........came about through the blogosphere where we meet like minded people.......through the ether.
The internet wasn't available to us in 1969 - how we revel in things modern.
Karen gathered us bloggers together from
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Vermont, Florida and Colorado to celebrate.................
EVERYTHING good and creative and fun.
This included (in no particular order)
friendship: for enjoying
nature: - for looking at. The bird watching was stunning - 2 kinds of woodpeckers, gold finches, cardinals, hummingbirds......
food: for eating yum yum - do not speak to me of Blogrolls
wine: for drinking - what else?!
water: for swimming
messiness:: from creating things gloriously
art for looking at - the house was full of delights but for MAKING too
color: for playing with
and so on and so forth......
We chatted a lot. Exchanged confidences and presents.
We did an art project which I'm sure will be better documented in other blogs soon.
Don't these pictures make it all look fun?
We felt like kindergartners utterly absorbed in the task at hand.........the only time we were quiet at all!
I wish you were all there.
Maybe soon all sorts of Blogstocks will spring up all over the country - and even the world - where Blogland is translated into the real world and we discover how much we have in common and how much we have to offer each other.
We were thinking Venice, Vienna, Morocco...........Australia, Malaysia wherever our friends are.........
