Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

It was especially interesting to meet and speak with Dave, as I was curious to see if he was there only in deference to you or if he had developed his own interest in Leonard. While your desire to attend had to be a factor, I sensed that he was far from being a reluctant participant. Good work in a...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

If you want to get as a complete understanding as you can of Leonard’s work I suggest you do get access to all his books in the order they were published. You could take advantage of being a librarian and read them first. I have already requested both Let Us Compare Mythologies and The Spice Box of...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

That is interesting B4! Not only for the mules, but for the " clear water ". The river that flows in front of our house, which incidentally is the the one Lewis and Clark navigated to connect with the Snake and later the Columbia and on to the Pacific Ocean,is called the Clearwater River. I am sampl...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

B4- I am glad you have brought up the Poetry Machine because as much as I loved it (and I really did), I also had a hard time with it. I could not even begin to absorb listening to Leonard’s voice recite his poems feeling that others were not only watching me, but waiting for their turn! I couldn’t ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi B4!! I think you are right about the image of Leonard on the balcony. Here is a collage of the room. Of course, I could not keep my hands off the guitar. ;-) I think we were so very lucky to be there at that particular moment because I doubt I would be all alone in that room any other time. I apo...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4! I loved your commentary on Montreal. This is the first I have had a moment to breathe since getting home; otherwise I would have posted sooner. If I were to choose a song title or lyric that would describe my experience in Montreal, it would be Love Calls You by Your Name. I love being anywhere i...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi Mary! After I read Adam's invitation to message him on Instagram if we wanted to give him any input, I just searched commandercohen on Instagram, clicked on his name and then clicked on 'message'. Maybe it was only accessible for a short time? Oh please don't be intimidated here. Once you meet me...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I am with you in spirit. While you are there just know that each time you are happy and each time you shed a tear, you do it for me too! I loved this. I haven't commented, because I understand this anniversary, although not easy for anyone here, is especially hard. And to be honest, I didn't know w...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Alan, I don't know if I have the original recordings, but I have downloaded the 5 songs from Fredericton, and the recordings I have are very good. I am really enjoying his voice on these songs. I am not sure what it is that is different, but he is treating each word with care as his voice seems to c...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Jean- Your posts are always so enlightening. I love hearing your thoughtful take on things. Your comments on Joan of Arc are very interesting. I think I need to read more about her as I have only a vague idea of her life and the history surrounding her. Thank you also for sharing your writing in the...

I always thought it was a reference to chain-smoking...lighting a new cigarette with the embers of the old... like my dad used to do.
PS... sorry about the "at least you didn't have to look it up" comment.

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Btw - to me these lines below always conjure up an image of a pregnant unmarried woman wanting to be wed :) “a wedding dress or something white to wear upon my swollen appetite”. Same here. I have also equated her appetite to her burning desires, sort of in the way that that Leonard often used the ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I'd never come across this expression, so I had no idea what it means and asked the internet: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pardon_my_French I think the low opinion that the French and English hold for each other has been with us for quite some time. It has always cracked me up how they were depict...
