As you probably know by now, Mary Travers (of Peter, Paul and Mary fame) passed away earlier this week.
How I loved this trio, and the kind of music they stood for - simple songs with a great deal of depth and meaning, played and sung simply before they were soon to be drowned out by technology, and multi-track rock and roll.
Thank you, Mary. And may you finally learn the answers to the questions originally posed by Bob Dylan.

And here's the song that used to make me cry, about dragons and things like the lost innocence of childhood.

And I also loved their less than subtle poking of fun at at the Mamas and the Papas, the Beatles and others that came after...

Anyway, thank you Mary. You gave so much!
