Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey: I am honored to be included in your famous blue notebook, and glad that you are keeping some kind of record. I told Joann I had been published, but she remains skeptical. Lisa: Love the hummingbird drawing, especially the coloring selections. Big news to report: Two ducks have been returni...

Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey, I've loved that little story from "Beautiful Losers" since the day I first read it. You left out the best part, however, Catherine T's comment after she stood up slowly, a comment deserved of a place in the Understatement Hall of Fame: "I guess I owe you all an apology." I need to read BL ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hey Geoffrey,

When your hands get too sore from drawing, but not too sore for typing, can you please tell us a story? I am certain that a story recounting one of your meetings with Leonard will cheer us all up. Thanks!

Re: Article in the Guardian about Leonard and Hydra

Thanks, Hugo, for steering us to this interesting article. Feeding one's troubled child LSD at age 15 was criminal, poor Axel Jr.

Re: never-ending gallery

C. Geoffrey Cope The rules call for strict isolation, In a plague that's just common sense. So his room becomes his salvation, It's walls are his viral defense. The solitude causes frustration, His loneliness becomes intense. Then he notices with elation His notebook and art implements. And so it se...

Re: never-ending gallery

It is always amazing what one can find on the internet just casually browsing around. Here is a video of a seven-year old drummer (he is now a bit older) playing a Beatles song, one with rather complex drumming I would say. He is quite talented. Why is it that I always seek examples of people doing ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey's on a roll with his sketches. Lisa finds a Minister of Silly Walks photo. And Solongleonard comes up with the Corowna joke (I just told it to my my dear wife and she actually spit out her drink in laughter). Thanks for making my day brighter! Regretfully I've nothing to share today. And I'...

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

Friends, Hope that everyone is successfully coping with the situation that thrust itself on us recently. Let's hope and pray for positive news and developments. Personally we have been little-affected, somehow self-isolation is not a big deal and actually offers benefits. Ame I wrong to think that C...

Re: never-ending gallery

Lisa, I post this with all good intentions and not to demean your feelings, but I personally do not feel we should hide bad things and bad people of the past. The logical follow-up to hiding bad things if forgetting them. There will always be crazies who might somehow interpret Geoffrey's drawing as...

Re: never-ending gallery

I really enjoy reading little vignettes like Geoffrey's, "I live in a small town where not much happens..." In just a handful of sentences, barely strung together, so much is conveyed about where he lives, the people that live there, and what the writer thinks about it all. I can imagine visiting th...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hello Geoffrey, I am full of questions today: Where does "Prayer is translation..." come from? Is the picture in your most recent post from one of the many journals you referred to? Your journals and artwork--will they have a life after yours? [The last question does not concern artistic longevity, ...

Re: never-ending gallery

I will go out on a limb and theorize that any form of exhibition--creation of art or writing or even posting on this forum--is at least in part meant to give the viewer or reader a desired impression of the work's creator. Maybe I've written a poem with such perfect words and flow that I believe it ...

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

Bev, thanks for the link. I watched the entire video (except I admit to fast-forwarding through "Jazz Police"). A very good short concert, I liked seeing the old band members who I had never seen in concert plus a young Bob Metzger. Leonard singing and playing his guitar for "If it be Your Will" was...

Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey, you have created a place where I can go whenever I start thinking too highly of myself and see all of the artistic talents I completely lack. Interesting writing and artwork was quite enough, now you are shaming me with your musical abilities. Where does this end? Have you any sculptures t...
