PUFF


(dragon cups by Gary Rith)
You KNOW Puff the Magic Dragon was my favorite song when I was 3. Then I discovered Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.

(KIDDING! KIDDING!)

The NY Times did an article this week saying that it seems like all these boomer heros are dying. Of course, some are older, like Walter Cronkite, but Mary Travers wasn't that old...

Best folk voices ever. So long, Mary.

I do love that song still. I got a kick out of the intro because I remember my grade 7 teacher trying to tell us that it wasn't as innocent as it sounded and that it had all these hidden meanings. You can read that into anything, I suppose. Cute dragon cups. :)

Happy memories of Puff. And if you want to read 'stuff' into things it's usually pretty easy. Me, I'll take mine straight, thanks, no add ons, no chasers.
