Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, it doesn’t matter about taking your time to respond – in fact, most people just read what others write and don’t feel the need to comment and I do that too at times! Speaking of travelling, I have recently clocked up about 1,400 km in one day “due to have-to-do things in the real world”. An ...

Re: Australian TV

I thought I’d add that Leonard was mentioned on Australian TV a couple of nights ago in a show called Spicks And Specks. The contestants were asked to match up singers with the TV shows they also appeared in. For Leonard it was his role in Miami Vice and they couldn’t guess it, ha!

Re: Gregory Alan Isakov

I’ve just now watched and listened to this new song recently played live by GAI and was attracted to it straight away. The words have a wonderful visual expressive emotional texture and I feel they do have an LC ring to them. Of course, :) the violin here enhances the atmosphere of the song and the ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Hi Vickie, Good to see things are settling down somewhat for you in your new place of abode. It looks like I have a different TEOS edition – it might be dog-eared but no dog tooth marks which I think I can see on yours ;-) My copy is the second one on the list here at the LC Files: https://www.leona...

Re: Remembering Leonard on his Birthday

But I know in my heart there will be more music to come from Leonard and that will be an outstanding additional bonus to look forward to. The singer may be gone, but his song lives on .... There is definitely more to come. I think we just need to be patient, now where did I hear that before. On Leo...

Gwen, That’s a wonderful tribute to our man! I am waiting until after the due release date of The Flame before I purchase the book. I simply want to relish and take my time (as you mentioned) over the last written words of Leonard, as slowly and resonantly as I can. But I know in my heart there will...
