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

Hello! I haven't posted much here, but I am definitely following. Bev, regardiing kismet, I have always struggled with that word. Does it mean 'fate' like wikipedia says? I am not so sure. Is it more like serendipity? I haven't started Matters of Vital Interest yet either. I am not sure when I will ...

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

Why do you care about your "standing"? ... Although I was worried some on how my opinion of BOM would be received, my statement about the fan club was made partly in reference to a funny conversation between 4 and Lisa in another thread where Curt was sheepishly admitting that he did not have the a...

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

I have finished Book of Mercy. Actually, I finished it several days ago, but I have been mulling over how to approach describing my reaction to this book. I haven't read the reviews and threads on this book on the forum or anywhere else, but I am aware that it is an important book, so of course anyt...

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

Hello- Sorry I have been gone for so long. Although things may have kept me from posting, nothing has kept me from reading and listening to Leonard. I am about to start Book of Mercy, but before I do, I had a few more thoughts on DOALM. First off, I have to say, what a wealth of thoughts and feeling...

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

4- I see you are onto the source of my inspiration in naming Jane ;-) It was the obvious choice for her (even Alan suggested it). She is a pleasure. The farrier commented that he had never seen such a pretty donkey. And Yes! She sends her regards. Bev- thank you for the email. I will share your mocc...

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

Hello- Anny...I feel a bit like you lately--- a silent reader of our thread, or perhaps more specifically, like Rumplestiltskin after not visiting the forum for so long. Sorry for my absence. Most of you know from private messages that Dave and I have had a tough time in the past few weeks. For thos...

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

Hello again.... I am sorry it has taken me so long to add to our conversation on Death of a Lady’s Man. I have excuses (most of them valid, some of them made up) for not getting back before now, but I will spare you deciding which is which, since most of the time, even I am not sure! Those who have ...

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

Bev So sorry for the fires. We too have had many more than usual in the West in the past few years. The smoke and lives lost make you feel like it is armageddon. I loved your link with the blind man and the girl. Jean is right. Words can make all the difference. I am reminded of this whenever I real...

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

Bev, I meant to reply first thing this morning, but it seems that Jean has beat me to the punch! I too was going to comment on your post regarding that you didn't realize you had such influence. I was going to say Ha! And then double Ha! Your influence is great, in these realms at least! I am LOVING...

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

My internet is back on... but that doesn't mean no typos! My pride (which I am learning is not the great personality trait that I thought it was) makes me tell you that medical transcriptionist was one of my many occupations, so even one typo is always an embarrassment. However, the reason I am writ...

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

Hello again, OK fine... B4 and Jean... you have encouraged me to finally order a Lorca book! Mine is coming from the UK through the Abe Books site I use. I will let you know what it looks like when I get it. I also need to apologize for all of the typos in my previous post. We are now in the metropo...

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

So good to hear from everyone! Alan, I am also looking forward to the ferry tickets opening up. I'm a little nervous about that part of the trip, because I'm not sure about getting from Athens to Hydra, but I'm sure it will all work out. I am also looking forward to reading Half the Perfect World. I...

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

Wow! If anyone had told me even 2 years ago that I would be traveling to an island in Greece that I had never even heard of before because of a man who was gone before I finally found him, I would have marvelled in the unpredicabality of life, and I also would have told them that they were crazy!

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

...even though I spat the dummy recently because that horrendous episode was so fresh in my mind doesn’t really mean that I won’t stop attempting to get over my anxiety... "Spat the dummy" eh? I had to Google that one! :D Although it may have been in the Australian slang link that I believe Alan sh...

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

B4- So good to hear from you, as always! I truly hate flying and that most definitely confirmed it! I said to the poor lady in the seat beside me, “That’s it! I don’t think I’ll ever do this again!!” Is this your way of telling me that I will not get to meet you in Hydra next June? You said that you...
