    Billie Holiday, 1938

    The “Lady Sings the Blues” myth was strictly for people who don’t get the music and don’t care to, part of a pervasive worship of tragic artists who die young, for the sake of the bad habits, not the art. Billie Holiday’s force of personality comes through on the records regardless, and her uncanny pitch sense, and that unique capacity for becoming one of the horns in the band, which made the musicians love her so.  –Elliott_Hurwitt — (from the comments section)

    I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
