Mary Travers died today :(

Wow, two blog post about celebrities dying this week...depressing! I was going to post another blog tonight and was writing it when I heard the news.

Mary Travers was part of the singing group Peter, Paul & Mary. I LOVE their music. There is just something so pure and real about it. It just brings a smile to my face and soothes my soul. "500 Miles", "Leaving on a Jet Plane", "Lemon Tree", "I dig Rock N Roll Music" and many, many more. However, none touch me deeper than "Puff The Magic Dragon" a beautiful song about a little boy growing older and leaving his youth behind. I tear up every time I hear it. She will be greatly missed but her music will live on.
