It Was A Wonderful Life

Goodbye, Studs. You'll be missed.

I first got acquainted with you when I was 17.
Working: An Oral History ~"People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do."
I still have that yellowed and dog-eared book with my loopy teen-aged handwriting claiming the book as mine. It's travelled with me to Texas, Germany, Oklahoma and back home to Ohio. It's holding up pretty well for a thirty year old paperback.
Hard Times: An Oral History of the Great Depression.
Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Reflections on Death, Rebirth and Hunger for a Faith.
I've read this one at least ten times since my mom passed. It helps.
Studs Terkel died in his home on October 31st at the age of 96. He spent a great deal of his life listening to people and recording their thoughts.
A lifetime of listening. A legacy of listening in his books.

Was he 96?
I think I will find myself a copy of one of his books.

I fixed it, I said he was 95. Thanks for the heads up.

What a beautiful page you have here... Thanks for leaving a trail to it :) I'd like to know more about the book you said you read a lot since your mom passed. My friend, Molly, reads a lot and might appreciate it. Thanks for the recommendation.

I'm always so sad when one of the Great Old Guard passes away. At least he shared himself with the world, to be remembered with fondness.

I've been trying to catch up with the posts I've missed. I've been a bad blogging buddy lately.
