The Until We Meet Again Tour – 25 August 2016, part 1

The anticipated venue proving unavailable, the Until We Meet Again Tour went to lunch at the North River Lobster Company. The experience included a 45-minute cruise on the Hudson. Others shared the river; tall buildings were on view.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – August 14, part 2

The Until We Meet Again Tour had always planned a trip to the Hudson River to take photos at sunset. Tonight I walked to Harlem Piers for that purpose. The weather had other ideas. The storm rolled in as I arrived. I beat a hasty retreat, spent a few minutes huddled with some others under an awning, and did not get too wet.

But another trip appears in order.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 14 May 2016

My days in New York are coming to an end. It has been almost six remarkable, amazing years. But a new call presents itself in Louisville and I will go.

In preparation for leaving, I have begun revisiting places I have enjoyed and visiting places I have not seen on the Until We Meet Again Tour.

I make these entries as a log of this time.

The tour began on 14 May 2016 with a trip to Fort Tyron Park.

Almost 70 years

20 July 1943 – Toshi-Aline Ohta married an aspiring folksinger about to be deployed overseas.

9 July 2013 – Toshi-Aline Ohta Seeger died.

For the almost 70 years between those two days, Toshi shared life with Pete Seeger. In their partnership, Toshi provided support and counsel and wisdom and stability. Toshi served as the rock that allowed Pete to carry on his work.

Toshi worked as an organizer (Pete noted that she become accomplished at this work because she had to organize him), activist, and filmmaker – she produced a film of work songs by inmates of a Texas prison in Huntsville.

Toshi served as an organizer and programmer for the Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival that has raised funds and consciousness on environmental issues.

Toshi and Pete had four children, one of whom died in infancy.

Woman.

Witness.

Wife.

Partner.

Mother.

Child of God.

Thanks be to God for the life of Toshi Seeger.

See you along the Trail.
