‘It’s kind of odd to think of Woodstock in terms of AARP…But that’s probably the magazine we’re going to advertise in,’ said Woodstock museum director Wade Lawrence in a recent Chicago Tribune article.
Woodstock seemed like a bookend to such a tumultuous decade – one filled with political turmoil and social change. My parents certainly didn’t get to experience Woodstock and its three days of “peace and music,” but it’s been a marker for their younger years. Something by which to gauge the changing world around them. The generation that came of age during the 60s is redefining what the new 50, 60 and heck, even 70, looks and feels like now.
