Re: never-ending gallery

...the thing is i made a pizza the day before yesterday and was very proud of it.... I think your pizza looks delicious! It really doesn't matter how one cuts it. I've often had round pizzas cut into squares -- for some reason, a lot of places here do that. I actually prefer triangular wedges with ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hello Geoffrey! Nice to see more of your artwork (and your interesting notebook). I'd rather not be analysed, and thus, perhaps, I ought to dispense with the cryptic comments! Nonetheless, since you said such nice things about my pictures (thank you for that! :D ), I have a drawing on hand -- based ...

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

...The Album: Thanks For The Dance .... When my CD was delivered, I resisted the temptation to listen to it straight away. I held off until the evening as I firmly believe it is best to listen to Leonard in the dark when my mind can absorb the words and music, but especially Leonard's hypnotic voic...

Re: It's been quiet around here...

...despite intentions to curb social activities, they seem to have effortlessly snowballed... Oh, that's good to hear -- I was hoping that was all it was that was keeping you from this corner of cyberspace. As to whether or not I am all right, as you allude, it rather depends on one's definition, b...

It's been quiet around here...

Geoffrey seems to have disappeared -- two weeks without a pic or a peep. I hope he's all right!

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

...there are a few other possible options in response to the "problem of evil in a universe created by a benevolent, omnipotent, and omniscient God." The really important one you leave out is often referred to as "the free will" solution. God, in his goodness, although it doesn't always feel like g...

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

..."why would God allow atrocities such as the Holocaust to happen?"... Ah, yes, the eternal "Problem of Evil" for those who choose to believe in an omnipotent, benevolent, and omniscient God. There is, of course, no answer to this question, at least not one that will satisfy everybody. Possible op...

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

...I agree that "The Night in Santiago" has received very little mention or discussion. IMO the story must have its roots with some relationship that Leonard had years ago, some fond memories that never disappeared ("though I've forgotten half my life I still remember this.") I cannot recall ever r...

Re: never-ending gallery

I love it. There's nothing wrong with a bit of frivolity, in fact, the more the merrier. Do the hearts within hearts symbolise your caring considerate personality? Do the yellow flowers symbolise the daffodils we have been discussing? Keep up the good work... Dear Alan, you are so very kind! Thank ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Enough seriousness from me -- this is a "never-ending gallery", after all, so how about some lightness in the form of a colourful picture? Here's a little frivolity that I did in watercolour pencil. Cheers!

Re: never-ending gallery

Hi Guys! Alan and I were typing at the same time! Alan and I clearly perceive the function of poetry and other art in a similar fashion. (And, thank you so much, Alan, for the kind words about my "works of art" -- I just may have to post another pic, fairly soon, after such encouraging words!). But ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Thank you, Alan and Geoffrey, for your insight and information about possible meanings of the "daffodil machete"! It may also be useful to refer to the poem by Federico García Lorca, "La casada infiel", on which Leonard's poem and song is based. In Lorca's poem, he uses the lines: "Con el aire se ba...
