I was getting this Arklow pottery plate all sparkly and ready for the shop when I noticed the name of the pattern was called Stardust. I am unable to hear the word stardust without thinking of the lines ” We are stardust ,we are golden” from the Joni Mitchell song Woodstock.
When I was in transition year in school a friend and I edited video of clips of Woodstock for a music project. Through the process of trying to make our edited masterpiece I will always remember this song. I think it’s so ingrained that I might even be wandering the corridors of a nursing home singing this well into my 80’s!
I choose the Crosby Stills and Nash version purely based on a better video, no offence to Joni was meant!
