Sunday Simple Wisdom of Buddha + Somethin' from Richie Havens...


...this weekend marks the 42nd anniversary of the Woodstock music festival. Last night I was rewatching old videos of all the amazing performances, man do wish I had been there. The freedom of it, the coming together despite everything that was happening in the world at the time. The beauty in the desire to share a peaceful experience with no expectations other than a few days of good music. Richie Havens opened the festival, his music has always struck me as the calm after the storm. Introspective and gentle come to mind. His rendition of the classic Beatles tune " here comes the sun " has always been a favorite. The last line gets me every single time..." in the end the love you save, will be equal to the love you gave "...

               


...and if you're in the mood, here he is talking about the Woodstock experience and what it meant to be there...
