I was, wait, sorry, that's "David Copperfield". Anyway, I was born in Brooklyn, grew up on Long Island, went to school in upstate NY and came straight back to Manhattan to live. Never lived anywhere else. Never wanted to. Got a job as a rock journalist, in the course of which I met and married a rock star (yeah, yeah, conflict of interest, who cares). Became a priestess in a Celtic Pagan tradition, and (based on sheer longevity) one of the most senior Witches around. Began writing my Keltiad series.

Where Has All the Power Gone?

I would urge anyone who missed it tonight to catch PBS's "American Masters" program on the great Pete Seeger.

I know that most of you young whippersnappers reading this blog probably have very little idea, or none at all, about who this guy was and is. But when you see the career he had, the life he built for himself and for so many others, the loving and mighty things he did when he didn't have to do anything of the sort and indeed, did it to his and his family's cost, because he had a conscience that wouldn't let him do anything else, as a man and even more as an artist, I would hope to hell you'll feel deprived and shallow and, yes, ashamed of the kind of stuff you've obediently opened for and swallowed down and didn't even think twice.

And it's NOT all right.

So watch it.
