Last week, I listened to an online talk titled: We Are Stardust. Interestingly, my mind raced back to my teen years and Woodstock Music Festive in 1969. The words of the song, Woodstock by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young came to mind: We are stardust, we are golden We are billion-year-old carbon And we’ve got… More We Are Stardust
