Sweet Memories

When I thought about it, he was thrilled… he loved all that time of his life.
They came to mind, as if they were flashes, images of each and every moment they shared together… when they first met and also the last… always with a feeling of happiness and longing… Because it was that simple, pretty.
I have always liked to meet at random and without a rush to people who make beautiful stories in your life, each paint something on the canvas, some with strokes full of color and others with their shapes, they say if anything takes care of a little bit More…
I don’t care that they’re not forever… neither am I.
If the memory is pleasant, I have more than enough.
We’ll always have the music…
Long live the art…

What Woodstock taught us about protest in a time of polarization

It’s been 50 years since Woodstock made music history. The groundbreaking festival is seen today as a nexus of freedom, drugs and rock and roll — and as a defining symbol of 1960s counter-culture, idealism and anti-war sentiment. Jeffrey Brown and producer Courtney Norris spoke with the people who made it all happen about what the seminal event means now, five decades later.

Listen to Roosevelt’s “Rendez-Vous with Destiny” speech

‘In Roosevelt’s experience, ideology was something to be feared, not embraced. Communism, fascism, Nazism (“National Socialism”) and even the unbending capitalist principles of his conservative critics were all looming dangers to the nation’s survival. This was the underlying message of his “Rendezvous with Destiny” speech. This was the point he desperately wanted to make to those who assembled in Franklin Field.’
