Remembering David Peel

Friends of David Peel turned out yesterday afternoon to honor the musician during a memorial wake at the Peter Jarema Funeral Home on Seventh Street...

Later, there was a singing tribute of his music in Tompkins Square Park...

The longtime East Village resident — known for his 1960s anthem "I Like Marijuana" and later for collaborations with John Lennon and Yoko Ono — died on April 6. He was 73. (The Times has a feature obituary here.)

His burial is tomorrow morning at 11 at Calverton National Cemetery in Riverhead, N.Y.

I'm definitely having a long-distance mourning, wondering where all the pieces of the puzzle are going.
Different puzzle, different pieces I guess.
The secret remains the effort we all have to put in so that love can win the day.
Ain't going to study war no more.
Keep On Chooglin'!
