This chat with Allen Levi was such a gift to me. Allen was a lawyer until his early 40's when he quit to become a singer/songwriter. Since then he's written THOUSANDS of songs, travelled all over, been a small town Judge, and takes care of his family's farm in Georgia. A few years ago he wrote a book, "The Last Sweet Mile", about the year he spent caring for his brother as he passed away.
Allen is a poet and unbelievably kind and gentle soul. I don't even believe I get to do this sometimes, getting to have these conversations. This was one of my favorites and I imagine it might be one of yours, too.
You can find Allen's books and other musings at:
And his weekly songs here:
