Well, yes, Barbara, Mrs. Lev is a treasure. She and Alan, her significant other, are the septuagenarian folkie friends I've spoken of in other threads. I asked one time whether they're married or "modern" - they're modern. Mrs. Lev is a ball of fire about four feet tall, full of songs and stories that she wants to pass on to Claudia and me, so we can preserve the "old songs." She has told me half a dozen times about how Pete Seeger visited for dinner, and how she went to visit Aunt Molly Jackson. She has a new song for me to learn or to research every time I see her. Alan, a soft-spoken bohemian sort who can make a flugelhorn sing, makes me tapes from his vast collection of old folk music records. I intend to learn everything they can teach me.
