Don, I'm especially struck by your comment. "This is for real!" Jean's music is so deeply rooted in tradition that even her newer songs have a timeless quality to them.

Lately, as Christmas comes near, I've been humming "Brightest and Best," and my all time favorite Christmas songs, Jean's own "Wintergrace."

"Peace Round" has been on my mind, too. What a simple and beautiful sentiment.
