Pete Seeger shall not be moved.

Edited on Wed Oct-09-13 02:28 PM by No Elephants
As you know, Pete Seeger lost his beloved wife this summer, eleven days before their seventieth wedding anniversary.

Today, I wondered how he was doing, given that even people who are not in their 90s tend to die within a relatively short time after death of a spouse.

And Seeger once wrote of his wife, Thanks to my wife Toshi, without whom the world would not turn nor the sun shine. /

(I was heard someone read a poem about the death of an identical twin that ended, "I don't know how to live, now that we have died.")

I found an interview that Seeger did with Democracy Now! only a month after his wife died. The interview was reassuring in that he was able to be present so soon after being widowed, but also a little disconcerting.

But then, I found this, from September 22, 2013 and I felt very good about Pete Seeger.

The man is 94. He has done an enormous amount of work. He knows, though, that he still has has a lot of work to do; and, rather than being sad about that, he is doing it.

Just like a tree that is standing by the water, he shall not be moved.
