Back to the garden

This is a song that has been playing and replaying in my head upon returning from Don and Marie's farm this weekend...It is called "Woodstock" by Joni Mitchell - just hit play and it will play the song and a slideshow I made of the farm...

I came upon a child of god
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, where are you going
And this he told me
Im going on down to yasgurs farm
Im going to join in a rock n roll band
Im going to camp out on the land
Im going to try an get my soul free
We are stardust
We are golden
And weve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Then can I walk beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning
Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe its the time of man
I dont know who l am
But you know life is for learning
We are stardust
We are golden
And weve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

By the time we got to woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust
Billion year old carbon
We are golden
Caught in the devils bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

That is a very nice video the way you match the farm to the song. You can appreciate it much more when you visit Sunrise Farms, everyone should.

J - I agree with you - everyone should "see" it to believe it...and more importantly fall in love with nature all over again, and with their way of looking at the world and the way they take care of their piece of it...
