The world I grew up in blown away by the wind

Today Mary Travers, the soaring female voice of the 1960s' folk supergroup Peter, Paul and Mary, passed away, aged 72. Her wide smile and happily crinkled eyes were as distinctive as her sonorous voice, and her battle with leukemia for several years did not silence her song or her passion for the social justice causes she cared so deeply about. Another reference point of my youth has gone!

What survives is the music.
