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

Jean,
Thank you for the link of Sílvia Pérez Cruz singing Pequeño vals vienés. How very, very beautiful!
And yes, I did recognize your signature in the song (and poem) and have often wondered why you chose that particular line.

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

Thank you B4 for your always revealing thoughts and back-story information on lyrics I noticed on Instagram that people are already declaring a favorite song on TFTD, but I don't know how they can, given the truth that 4 pointed out-- the more you hear Leonard's words, the more you discover. But I d...

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

4 and Jean, Like Curt, I will wait to comment on my impressions. We have just come back from a family memorial, and I have only had a chance to listen to Thanks for the Dance twice. Also, like Curt and Jean, I am struck by its perfection and an appreciation to those who brought it forward to us. I r...

Re: Quote for newborn

I am not sure if you have found your quote, but we are just now celebrating the birth of our first grandchild, and one of our forum members, its4inthemorning, just sent me the quote below. It is from Songs of the Street, and I thought it was perfect (thank you 4!): "We are so small between the stars...

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

B4, Thank you so much for all of your thoughts! And your links and special insight. ;-) You have probably guessed that I haven't read any of the posts regarding the new album yet, but I did follow your link, and yes, I do remember what you are referring to at the concert. I am so grateful to Adam fo...

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

I have at last finished reading the Book of Longing . By now, if you read any of this, you have an idea of my tastes, so you might guess that I loved this one, and you would be right. It was different than others. It isn’t that I feel Leonard wasn’t honest in other poetry books, but this one feels m...

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

Thank you for sharing B4! I can't help but wonder what was so grim about the summer of 2007 in Montreal.
Still, I love that poem, especially the last lines at the bottom of the print.

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

Vickie, on your "alpha journey" through the songs, you have caught up with the present, you are up to date. So there is nothing left to interfere with doing whatever you like. Of course Jean is right. Although I have pre-ordered Thanks for the Dance on Amazon, I will be waiting until Nov 22nd, or e...

Re: LC stamps & collectibles by Canada Post

I was able to order mine here in Oregon!
Poor Dave (my husband)... he doesn't even try to talk me out of anything 'Leonard' anymore, lol! :)

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

Hello everyone (B4, 4, Jean, Alan, and anyone else who has joined us on this 'alpha' journey), I very much need to talk to you guys right now. I am feeling a little bit overwhelmed. I am thinking about what B4 said a long time ago, regarding Leonard's last album (YWID). She said that she didn't want...

Re: Leonard's Voice

What a wonderful list of attributes! My favorites were "spread with smoke and subversive wit", because I love Leonard's sense of humor , and "Nobody can say the word "naked" as nakedly as Cohen...", because I have also been quite taken with the way he always said that word. I love the entire scope o...

Re: Is Leonard on SiriusXM's Tom Morello's "One Man Revolution" tomorrow?

Hi B4! Always good to hear from you! Thank you! I discovered that I could play episodes on demand with the SiriusXM app! I was able to catch the episode and YES, Leonard was on there! In his shows, Tom Morello focuses on all kinds of music that influenced him as the guitarist for Rage Against the Ma...

Re: Is Leonard on SiriusXM's Tom Morello's "One Man Revolution" tomorrow?

I was at work, so I wasn't able to listen and see if Tom Morello talked about Leonard or not. I am guessing not.
If anyone knew it about it, it would be someone here.
Thanks anyway!

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Welcome Celena ;-) I am new also, so I will (of course) have no answers to your questions, but I would like to hear them all the same! Maybe they will answer some of my own, right? Harold asked if you are Paul Auster. I am not sure what that means.... but it begs me to ask.... who shall we say is ca...
