The Town Scryer is a mixed bag of humor, socio-political observations and ephemera from the perspective of a eclectic Pagan veteran of the counter-culture.

What Thou Lovest Well...Remains
Of all the images snapped during the original Woodstock weekend, one stands above all: A young couple huddled together in a blanket, standing alone in a sea of people lying on wet ground.
It’s an enduring image of love, care and protection that earned iconic status through its placement on the cover of the original “Woodstock” album in 1970, as well as on the movie poster.
Forty years later, the couple in the photo - Nick and Bobbi Ercoline, both 60 - remain together. They married two summers after the fabled weekend and they still live less than an hour’s drive from the original concert site of Bethel, N.Y. and within spitting distance of where they both grew up.
