Re: Smile of Light

Ah Geoffrey, in all things I have one rule and one rule only - it’s easy to remember that way, ha! I try to treat other people the way I’d like to be treated - sometimes it doesn’t always work but I do try :) I do have a good sense of humour – laughter is most important! Besides, it gives one a more...

Re: Smile of Light

Ah Geoffrey, now you’ve mentioned that famous year of 1066 which is most significant in my ancestry I can’t help but spill the beans further ;-) starting with the main man, William The Conqueror. Yes, he is one of my ancestors - actually I’ve heard that 25% of the English population can also make th...

Re: Smile of Light

Thanks Geoffrey, glad you liked it! And you are right; I really should post in this section more often. I’ve been 3 score and ten years in the art profession in some form or another and love it. But researching family history has been commandeering a lot of my time for a while now. It’s absolutely f...

Smile of Light

Kindles Universe Light.jpg “That Light whose smile kindles the Universe” ~ from Adonais by Shelley I reckon those words above by Shelley on the death of his compatriot Keats are also applicable here today. They were the inspiration for my design. I didn’t want to post anything sad to remember Leona...

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

Vickie, I did try to cure my fear of flying with the best motivation possible as you will read here ;-) https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=34170&start=30#p335114 ....And I’m still trying, so even though I spat the dummy recently because that horrendous episode was so fresh in my ...

Re: Gregory Alan Isakov

Diane, thanks for your kind words! You know, selfishly, it’s kinda comforting for me to post LC info :) And I am also dawdling on reading The Flame – I’m still yet to buy it. Besides, good things come those who wait ;-) Murray, nice to see you posting again! I didn’t know GAI was coming to Australia...

Re: Gregory Alan Isakov

Hi Diane, nice to catch up with you again! I received this below as an LC google alert a few days ago. To read the full article you have to answer some survey questions which I didn’t (and never) do. I found that sentence by Gregory below was interesting in itself alone. http://www.leavenworthtimes....

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!
