I'm having a bit of a Koigu week.
And to be more specific, a Koigu size Large binge.
Here's a few samples:
Koigu KPPPM colour P142
The fall craft shows are but a scant few weeks away, and I'm in OD mode. (That would be Over Drive, not Over Dose... though the distinction is sometimes blurred.)
RIP Mary Travers
Swayze. But the passing of Mary Travers knocked the wind out of my sails this morning.
I was totally inspired by Peter Paul and Mary as a young teenager with a guitar slung over his back.
I loved their music.
I loved their politics. They were right up there with Dr King in Washington, and at the forefront of the anti war movement.
I, like countless others, was positive Puff the Magic Dragon was a secret marijuana song.
And I loved that they introduced young upstarts to the world, like Bob Dylan and Gordon Lightfoot.
In the mid 80's PPM did a concert in Toronto. I took DS. The place was packed with middle-somethings'. It was such a hoot. They would strum a one chord intro to a song and the entire audience would know exactly what song was coming and join in right on the very first word. And sing every word of every song! DS couldn't figure out how we all 'knew'.
What a sad passing for us now-past-middle-somethings.
