Laura you are our harbinger of pop culture and highbrow stuff too. And your elegies make me cry. But then again.. everything makes me cry. I love your inserts - GC

Thanks, Laura! I enjoyed reading this piece. Yes, I think that singing a song like "I Had A Hammer" with groups of people, became a huge part of who I am. I'm thankful for Seeger's music.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
