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

... the delay had me thinking that somehow you were disappointed, which I would never be able to understand. Glad to let you know that was not the case. I can’t imagine LC's concerts were ever a disappointment unlike other artists I have seen. My apologies to any other Dylan fans out there, but as ...

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

Thank you Jarkko!! How nice that our conversation is no longer split up between two threads. It’s great to be able to look back on it all in one fell swoop. I hope I have an opportunity to meet you one day Jarkko, as I am already in your debt. Although I haven’t allowed myself to look through everyt...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

B4- Thank you for the video links! I loved hearing him recite Days of Kindness and talk about how he hopes the memories are good for the people he thinks about "from his spine". I also loved what he said in the second clip about the end of The Gypsy's Wife. I read somewhere that someone had said he ...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Thank you 4! I love your feedback as always. it's interesting to see what songs others find significant and why. I see you like the same lyrics on Darkness as I do. I missed the physics reference in Show Me the Way. I guess I was always more into biology and chemistry, but I appreciate the insight y...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

B4- I am glad to hear that this is helping you process and heal. Such a loss everyone here has been going through I know. You are right that I loved the quote with mention of Dylan :) Mostly, I like hearing Leonard's own take on his writing. However, how would he know whether or not what he is descr...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

To me the last three studio albums seem to have a lot in common….. I know you will like what you hear. I would say you have gotten to know me pretty well in this regard! As you would guess, I am thrilled with Old Ideas, to put it mildly. (!!) Likewise, I doubt if it comes as any surprise that Darkn...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Oh B4, your art of Leonard is beautiful. I especially loved the image that looks like it's from the Isle of Wight concert. I love your style. Thank you so much for sharing a little of your art. It appears you deserve to have received a personal thank you from him. I would say you are so lucky to hav...

Favorite part of my day? Taking my nephew roller skating for his first time and amidst disco ball lights and summer school crowds of children.... hearing Hallelujah appear over the sound system on the heels of Lady Gaga's Poker Face!... Golden!

There's every chance we haven't heard the last of LC - see here: http://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=37221&hilit=back#p364269 This must be the 'omega' kind of stuff of which you speak! As bittersweet as the near-end of this first leg of my journey is, I am very excited to check out...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Hi Vickie, Sounds like life is happening to you while you are busy making others plans :) I’m remembering the first time I played my CD of Dear Heather. I totally wasn’t prepared for all the duets and female voices at all and wasn’t quite sure what to think about that. I do know I just wanted Leona...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Oh yes 4, distances are real here. I lived in Massachusetts for a (very) long 7 years, and I will never forget how shocked I was to find everything so close that I could go through 4 townships in the space of 5 minutes and cross an entire state in an hour. To say I was thrilled when I finally came b...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

4! Thank you so much for your reply! I loved reading your reviews. I am crazy busy today with just beginning my summer (the blessings of working for a school district!) and having just made a quick 12-hour trip to Montana yesterday to pick up our 10 year old nephew who will be spending a month or so...

Hey 4-

If you are still checking this thread......I have been waiting for your review of the 'new' album. What did you think of the song about the mare?

Sincerely but not so very patiently,
Vickie

... I know how much it must mean to her! Vickie... I loved your letter to Leonard. I wish he were here to read it, but I still hold hope that he's aware of it in the hereafter. Lizzie, Thank you. Yes, you are right, everything B4 (and others on the forum) have shared with me has truly added to this...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

B4, thank you so much for your additional insight into this album. Maybe it is the Zen quality of it that attracts me. I especially loved hearing more about A Thousand Kisses Deep. I'm not surprised to learn that it has other verses. I also love the quote where he described using meditation time for...
