Muriel and Lucas found love at Woodstock.
A son was conceived under a tarp in a muddy field.
As star children whose child came from a perfect blending of souls meant to be together,
the fruit of their desire would stand out and immortalize them.
He would embody their harmony.

    1. I was 13 years old in 1969. I remember reports about it but was too young to be included. (I’m quite sure I wouldn’t have joined in even if I’d been older. The ‘free love’ and drug use wasn’t alluring to me. 😉 )

      1. The free love was one of the attractions to me when I read about it. At 35 and forever alone, I realise an event like that might be my only shot at love.

      2. Mason, that kind of love isn’t worth having. You’re too romantic to settle for any girl who’d just give herself away. (My son is a little older than you. He has also given up on pursuing love. The stars may still shine on you guys when you least expect it. ❤ )

Tell me something good...
