"Strugglin' on, strugglin' on" National Treasure for sure!

One of the things in my life I am most grateful for was the opportunity to hang out with Pete at various protest marches and music and folk life festivals. Heck I even got to perform FOR him at a young songwriters workshop. (He was kind in his neutral comments about my rather lame efforts)

Picking up trash with Pete at 6 a.m. -after a long night of song swapping- is one of my fondest memories. He was the Energizer Bunny... I could not keep up him!

To be at a Pete concert - whether it was a bunch of kids under a shady tree, or at a huge event, is like being swept up in an unstoppable swelling river of music, shared stories and human voices joined and tumbling in love...

Dear Pete, may you stay forever young.
