Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Bash

I'm just writing to let you know how touched & grateful I was by your poem/dedication to Pete on Sunday. It was definitely the high point of the whole concert for me! Not only was the writing superb, but your warmth & heartfelt, yet skillful delivery were worthy of a fine actress! You managed to evoke in the audience's "mind's eyes" a vivid experience of those days in Beacon, and at once humanized yet lent impetus for our further appreciation of the "Beacon Seegers".  - Bill Vanaver

Peggy Quotes 2

Backed by her sons Neil and Callum Maccoll – the standard of musicianship on stage was just fabulous – Peggy is a monster banjo player and the three of them together produce that wonderful intuitive sound that family members seem to be able create when singing and playing together.

22 Autumn Leaves Jamaica Pond.JPG

Here is the pond again, with the colours cheering because Barack Obama is our new president. I put this photo on because people in Europe cannot believe the colours that our trees turn here in the autumn. I once heard a French teacher at Oberlin talking about the gloomy European poems about autumn. She claimed those poems were due to the European autumns when the trees are sodden, the leaves turn brown and plop, damp, down to the ground. So here, for reminders, are some Jamaica Pond trees in November.
