freedom tunes

last week, geoff watched a documentary from the library about the life and work of pete seeger.  it inspired him to dig back into this man's music.  our house is filled with the sounds of "we shall overcome..." and "oh mary don't you weep don't you moan."  isaac absolutely relishes it.  he picks up a harmonica that my mom just sent him and he goes to town, stringing together notes and letting himself be moved by the songs.  from the kitchen, i can't help but smile and rejoice that even at his age, these tunes of liberation appeal to his soul and sweep him up.
