Senior Seeger

"Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple." -Pete Seeger

In keeping with that quote, this is my simple tribute and HAPPY BIRTHDAY post in honor of the wise and honored elder Pete Seeger. Today is his 87th birthday. It seems that there was a bit more press last year on this date, maybe not as much (but still some) this year.

I'm so glad he's still around to feel the good vibes of happy wishes. I've never seen him perform and I suppose his heyday was waaaay before my time, but I heard him speak on the radio a couple years ago and was quite smitten.

Thanks for your wisdom, Mr. Seeger, and may your influence stay strong. We need you more than ever these days!
