Each of us works on our own schedule, but we hope to create something that remains when we're gone. On this cold January day, we note the loss of Pete Seeger, the great folk singer and author of great songs including "We Shall Overcome," "Turn! Turn! Turn!," and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," songs that we think of as America's songs, our songs. It's good to stop and note with gratitude the gift that artists like this give to us. Thank you, Pete Seeger, and rest in peace.
