Woody Guthrie at 100

I grew up during the era of the American Folk Music Revival and at an early age there were four people who influenced my profound love for America's natural beauty: the painter, Thomas Moran; the naturalist and author, John Muir; and the activists/folk singers, Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. They were, and still are, my heroes.

Happy birthday Woody Guthrie. "This land is (still) your land. This land is my land. From California to the New York highlands...."

(And I'm still roaming and rambling.... )

"This land was made for you and me."
