Re: Linda Sturgess has passed away

This is terrible, shocking news!! I remember Linda's dedication in making all those wonderful, tour-related posts, as well as her exuberance & warmth, which always came through in her posts. Although I didn't meet her in person, I will always remember her.

Condolences to Linda's family & friends.

Re: Leonard and Corona

I keep thinking of these lines from Gypsy Wife: "...this is the darkness/ this is the flood/ and there is no man or woman can't be touched..." And from The Flood: "The flood it is gathering/ Soon it will move/ Across every valley/ Against every roof..." How very prescient of Leonard, as always. But ...

My Messiah

In the song, Happens to the Heart, Leonard wrote this line: "It failed my little fire". It makes me sad that Leonard would think such a thing, so I wrote this response to that line: My Messiah I shall call you my messiah It did not fail, your holy fire Your flame, it resurrected me and saved me from...

Re: Holiday Wishes 2019

Dear Jarkko & Eija, Thank you for the very striking, gorgeous photo! I am so sorry to hear that Eija is ill. I remember when I met both of you for the first time, in Las Vegas in 2010, & I was struck by Eija's beautiful, warm, penetrating eyes, & the lovely intensity of that photo reminds me of her ...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

I thought I did delete the entire review, so I am at a loss as how this apparently did not happen. Is it still there? I see three dots. When I made my previous post, it was still there, but I see that now it has been deleted. Thank you very much, Hal E. Lujah, it was very considerate of you to foll...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Wish I hadn't posted it. Why don't you delete it, then? IMO, it's not worthy of the space it's occupying here, & though I can only speak for myself, I would venture to say that most people here are likely to agree. I read a couple of lines, & decided it wasn't worth my time or energy. You can just ...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Wow, Happens to the Heart, so haunting, so beautiful, I totally love it!! And I love the alternate lyrics that Leonard sings, which are different, & IMO even better, than the previously posted poem; esp.: "I had no trouble betting/ on the flood against the ark/ you see, I knew about the ending/ what...

Re: "Hummingbird", a song based on Leonard's poem

Hartmut, that is beautiful!! What a lovely melody - so stately & meditative - it had me swaying with the beauty of the majestic sounds, soothing rhythm, & your perfect incorporation of Leonard's voice! Thank you for sharing that.
