“You can’t really change the heart without telling a story.” ~ Martha Nussbaum


The 1969 Woodstock Festival defined our generation with ideals, magic and a community of family – a really big family, now grown to millions worldwide and shared by all of us who treasure peace and love as we question capitalism, politics and war. It was a time of hope, harmony and compassion during a troubling war, and continues as a way of being and remembering. ’69 Woodstock – 3 days of peace and music, with 600,000 mostly young people – was a pivotal event held at Bethel, New York, in “the house of God.” There were no fights or incidents of violence. Police were there to help others, not to judge. The amazing energy on Max Yasgur’s farm has continued for half of a century with a spirit of volunteerism and community, bringing sunlight through dark clouds and rain to a worn-out “The amazing energy country as if the on Max Yasgur’s farm souls there were has continued for half of grounded while a century with a spirit lightning pierced their hearts to of volunteerism and change the trajectory community” of fate. Michael Lang, the producer and founder of both the ’69 festival and this year’s 50th anniversary Celebration of the Woodstock Music & Arts Festival in Watkins Glen, New York said, “ ’69 was a reaction by the youth of

the time to causes we felt compelled to fight for: civil rights, women’s rights, the antiwar movement. Today we’re experiencing similar disconnects in a strange reality where facts don’t matter and climate deniers occupy top positions. Trump is the antithesis of what we were about. He’s not about bringing people together and what we’re doing is not about him. At the beginning of the next election cycle, the plan is for matching music with purpose, building around activism and supporting advocacy and sustainability – really an evolution involved to unite in the social issues of the day: the Black Lives Matter, Me Too and Times Up movements and global warming; to give people around the world hope, encourage them to engage and make it known…be part of the Woodstock of this generation. “Everywhere is a song and a celebration.” Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, located at the historic site of the 1969 festival and an hour’s drive from Woodstock, New York will also celebrate the anniversary. Visit the museum and immerse yourself in the 1960s exhibit, We Are Golden – Reflections on the 50th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival & Aspirations for an Aquarian Future. Walk the Bindy Bazaar trails while picturing the 600,000 people stretching beyond the horizon. Same place. Different time. Still historic.

The world-class Drum Boogie Festival will be holding its free 10th anniversary concert in Woodstock in September, produced by Woodstock Chimes, which is celebrating their 40th anniversary. Garry Kvistad, executive director of 4

the Drum Boogie Festival, founder/CEO of Woodstock Chimes and NEXUS member, said, “Music is a universal language helping to erase lines of hatred and bigotry through the exchange of diverse cultures.”

“Music is a universal language helping to erase lines of hatred and bigotry through the exchange of diverse cultures.”

The timing couldn’t be better. We’re in a struggle for the soul of our democracy as our president denies his ties to Russia and ignores corruption while stirring up immigrant fervor and crisis as a diversion. The

Pat Horner

greatest arrogance is to forget where you came from. We are all immigrants or children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren of immigrants. While Trump and his enablers devalue immigrants, we honor our late local Franz Heigemeir, who gave his life and art to this country and our community (see story on page 6). Also in this issue, Barry Samuels remembers Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” while pondering our future (page 14) and Dakota Lane writes enchantingly about growing up in Woodstock (page 10). “Simply to live does not justify existence, for life is a mere gesture…but oh to leave a trace, no matter how faint, of that brief gesture! For someone, some day, may find it beautiful!” ~ Frank O’Hara ~ Pat Horner

“To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control…” ~ Martha Nussbaum


A gentleman fine artist, calligrapher and graphic designer recently passed away at 88. Franz Heigemeir was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1930 and met his wife, Marianne, in 1950 while they were attending art school. He was a German native and she had left Ukraine during World War II at age 7. They became engaged before she moved with her family to the USA. Franz followed her and in 1953 they were married in New York City. Franz brought a rare European “Franz brought a charm, fine posture, perfect rare European charm, manners and the fluidity of fine posture, perfect grace when he immigrated. After manners and the 2 years in the US Army, while fluidity of grace when vacationing, Franz and Marianne he immigrated.� discovered Ulster County and lived in Rifton since 1956. They were hard-working and family-minded, making a wonderful life with their 2 sons in a home Franz designed and built himself. The marriage lasted for 65 years until the time of his passing.

Marianne Heigemeir

Franz studied at the Art Students League and worked in advertising on Madison Avenue and as a graphic designer, calligrapher, teacher, sculptor and painter. He exhibited extensively in the Hudson Valley and beyond, including the at National Academy of Design and the Harvard Law Library. A lifetime member of the Woodstock Art Association and the Art Society of Kingston, he was the recipient of many awards, including the Sidney Laufman Award and the Yasuo Kuniyoshi Award. Franz was greatly inspired by a cereus cactus plant called Queen of the Night, which, from the original plant he acquired, is still blooming in their home, known for its 8-inch, fragrant pure-white blooms. The flower opens only once a year and only for a few hours at night, then closes and dies. This blossom was the focal point for his 7

Franz Heigemeir

paintings for many years and he was as rare as the beloved plant he painted so often. Recently Franz said, “I painted that flower in many different lights for a number of years. I have come so far now and have found renewed freedom in abstract expression in my newer works. I want to create art that hasn’t been done.” And he did create art, like no one else.

Franz Heigemeir

“I painted that flower in many different lights for a number of years...” Martha Nussbaum wrote, “To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control…. That says something very important about the condition of the ethical life; that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.” While working next to him hanging exhibits at Woodstock Artists Association, I was inspired and felt myself a better person from seeing his art, observing his technical knowledge, encountering his quiet respect and humor with that wonderful smile. 8

Franz Heigemeir

Today, while our president’s fear of immigrants is threatening our democracy, squashing ethical values and justice and dividing us while praising autocrats and tyrants, we are reminded of how much beauty an immigrant with high standards, chivalrous behavior and courteous manners can offer us. Franz was a true gentleman.

“Dance your Soulful path and you shall know the magic of your mind & heart and all the beauty laughing to fill your rising self.� ~Jay Woodman 10

Even before the Woodstock Festival changed the nature of the world, my own little life was turned upside down. We moved to Woodstock when I was 7, and I felt like Alice, entering a looking-glass world where the adults had gone mad and the rules were unknowable. In second grade I’d hear a lecture about the evils of marijuana at Woodstock Elementary School, then go home and see the stuff baked into green cookie dough and all the grown-ups laughing and blasting music. I stood on a chair washing dishes, while Dylan screamed out how I felt:

“It’s a shame The way she makes me Scrub the floor I ain’t gonna work on, nah I ain’t gonna work on Maggie’s farm no more” —I had a dream that he might rescue me.


Elliott Landy

If you see the white building in the middle of town which is now the Center for Photography, it was once the Café Espresso, a brown building, a dark, blackish brown that can still be seen in the original handmade Woodstock houses, particularly in the Byrdcliffe buildings in the stillthriving arts colony on the other side of Glasco Turnpike. Dylan hung out upstairs at the Café, and wrote some of his early songs there, and I still remember the waxy tables out on the covered front porch, the jugs of wine, pitchers of Coke for us kids, the café-style candles in net cradles and the super-happy mood my father was in with his new leather jacket, new motorcycle and new 18-year-old girlfriend who would become his wife. Dylan sat a table in the corner hidden beneath a tall Russian hat, and people were taking discreet peeks. On his way out he stood before our table for one thrilling second, right in front of my chair. Cocked his head, took a tug of my cowboy hat and said: “I’ll give you 5 dollars for that.”

Elliott Landy

Fast forward and I was out on that same porch, wearing a leopard-spotted midriff top and tight black jeans and there was Rick Danko on the stage, and Levon Helm, and Paul Butterfield jumped in, and they were singing “Let’s Go Out in a Blaze of Glory,” and by golly they eventually did go out, in some kind of blaze, and it wasn’t until they died, and most of the rest of the good ones went, that you knew the ’60s were really over, but Woodstock never was. The town of Woodstock might appear to be tame these days but do not think for a second that you won’t find the authentic Woodstock magic. If you open your heart to it, it’s actually a guarantee that it will find you. I lived in 40 different homes across the country before I settled back in Woodstock at age 25, with my new baby in tow. I have so much gypsy in me that it took half a century for me to realize that Woodstock is my true, and perhaps, even likely, my final home. I was walking up Rock City Road one day, now in my 50s and a grandmother, and realized that I knew pretty much every tree and every house and every stone.


Kevin Johnson

I walked all the way up Mead’s Mountain once pushing one of my daughters in a stroller, just to have a picnic in a certain meadow. I went up that same mountain to become a Buddhist and play the ceremonial drum with Tibetan Buddhist masters; and when I couldn’t

get up there, I sat on the Village Green on Sundays and played the conga drums alongside other types of masters. Even before the festival, and “I sat on the Village before the Maverick and the Green on Sundays Byrdcliffe artists landed, and and played the conga those before them, the earth drums alongside was pulsing, beating, calling, other types of singing, and those with ears masters.” would heed it, and those with hands would let that energy form beats and chords and pots and paintings and brown buildings among the trees.

Elin Menzies

Reaching back to the ones whose bones the town was built upon, who are related by heart and belief to my own Native roots-- I grasp the hands of those who would not pull me down, but raise me up, to dance, to drum, to proclaim—we are the real Woodstock, we are the real Woodstock, we are the real Woodstock. As long as you can hear me drumming and singing my song, you are all invited, every one, to put down your spades, leave all your Maggie’s Farms, get in the circle and join. The sounds we make together will be good. Here in Woodstock, we rescue ourselves, but never alone. The trees of Woodstock brown are watching, and their roots grow deep into that source you seek. Touch a Woodstock tree, and fall into the portal. ~ Dakota Lane 13

Bennett Horowitz

“We are stardust We are golden And we’ve got to get ourselves Back to the garden” ~ Joni Mitchel


Awhile back I wrote in these pages a description of the town of Woodstock’s spirit as exemplified by Joni Mitchell’s poem “Woodstock.” The first stanza showed Adam & Eve returning to Eden (the Woodstock Festival) where they “camp out on the land … soul free,” where they were involved in conservation and free from the suffocating rules of an older America. They sought to transform the country, beginning in the time of Aquarius “to lose the smog” and not become a “cog” in the American machine. It was a great transformation in America for the half-million strong – a magical dream of peace and mankind’s reconnection to nature. Adam & Eve sought to recover their innocence, to restart history, to reform our relationships, to dream of a women’s rights movement of equality, to express “free love” – to favor spontaneity over constraint. Were we progressing or drifting? Was it enough to achieve or merely to experience? Would the road to Woodstock lead to self-knowledge or self-deception? “We are stardust / we are golden” becomes a humanistic refrain of the belief of possibility.

“a magical dream of peace and mankind’s reconnection to nature” Isaac Abrams

We are at the half-century of this transformative event. What this seems to me to call for is to follow the music, not the money. “Everything was song / and celebration.” Music broke down the barriers and inhibitions of our lives. Music & marijuana infected life into us. — Continued


I know that listening and feeling live music can be like a spiritual experience taking us to a higher level of existence. Musicians are still our guides. Music is the key to our future, our destiny.

Barbara Bravo

While we have become more conscious, technology has added another wrinkle to our progress. With our smart phone and the internet, we may gain information but we don’t necessarily gain knowledge. We must be careful with this gift of technology and how we use it. We are not through with war (Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan) yet it is a different warfare, a drone-dominated army of aggression – no more body bags of Vietnam. But technology has made us more materialistic with these “futuristic” weapons. Now war is all based on military contracts to strengthen our economy. War maintains our prosperity – this must change. We shall study war no more. We still have racial unrest (Ferguson and the practice of some “We shall white police officers to shoot study war African Americans), and now no more.” with the statistical inevitability of the new decade we can expect to see a new face of America – a brown face. We will have “white fright” as a majority slowly changes in favor of people of color. 16

While “woman strengths” were initiated by the Woodstock Nation, it wasn’t until last year, with the Me Too movement, that the root causes of misogyny have been addressed. This took 50 years.

Alex Kveton

Through the widespread interest in Buddhism we have been challenged to give up our egos. With this comes the end of America’s need to be number one. We don’t have to rule the world anymore. I hope that this nostalgia for the Woodstock Festival’s golden anniversary doesn’t overshadow the continuing task to reform the white old-boy policies of America. Don’t throw out the tie-dyes or beads, but give them to your grandchildren who have started a new social and political movement, progressive, gender-fluid, protectors of the earth’s climate – who live for context over personality, content “Don’t throw out the tieover style. It will be dyes or beads, but give them these, these young to your grandchildren...” people, who will be the new directors of our fate.

“It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it…This I know. This I believe with all my heart. If we want a free and peaceful world, if we want to make the deserts bloom and man grow to greater dignity as a human being -we can do it!” - Eleanor Roosevelt 44
