My kids come to me for answers. You know, why did she say that to me (sometimes people lose their temper, wait a day and it'll be okay), how does this work (microwaves speed up the molecules in the food and heat it up from the inside), what should I do here (carry the one). When it comes to death, and specifically after death, I have to rely on my friend Iris. She tells me to tell them to, "let the mystery be."
I know nothing about Joan Baez other than a couple of songs. But to hear that her background is "Mexican, English, and Scottish, and she grew up in a Quaker household" makes me appreciate our melting pot more than ever.
How do you not talk about Pete Seeger? The more you read about the man, you find out he walked the walk of the songs he sang. I hope you get to lay that hammer down now, Pete. Others will swing it now.
