Losing you wife and daughter in such a short period of time ...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Geoffrey, like reading your notes. If you click on them it the notes expand and are shown on a black background which is easier on the eye. I like how lines divide the sections, how questions are numbered but don't always stay in the designated space. I like how it seems to be trying to piece someth...

I was looking forward to the next album as well or perhaps more poetry - he seemed so focused. It's interesting the connection that you've made with mindfulness David. Leonard Cohen is actually the only artist that I'll repeat songs over and over and I do that not because I'm listening to the lyrics...

Re: Bench updates

Well that Island has a Leonard Bench!
