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

Hi Smokeylives! Wow, where'd you manage to find all his works at? Where there is a will, there is a way, or so they say. Not sure where your location is, but I have gotten the harder to find ones on Abebooks.com (Sshhhhhhh!) I haven't come up empty as yet, but I am not done either. Thanks for taking...

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

So nice to hear from you B4! I love that we have better internet, so I can finally listen to and watch the videos that you share! It is easy to see how Leonard would be drawn to Anjani's interpretation of his poetry into song! I haven't listened to her much yet, mostly because of the internet issues...

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

I decided to start with Parasites of Heaven and then move on to Beautiful Losers. I just finished Parasites of Heaven. Unfortunately it took me longer than expected to complete it, because in the middle of it, we sold our house, moved from Idaho to Oregon and now are about to move again. After renti...

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

"You kick off your sandals, you shake out your hair, it's torn where your dancing it's torn everywhere. It's torn on the right and it's torn on the left and it's torn in the centre, which few can accept....." This isn't a song, but it was speaking to me loud and clear two weeks ago when we found out...

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

B4- Thank you for the research on DITM! I knew there were many versions, although as mentioned not with the purity of the studio version, but I didn't realize how many. I have heard the Jamaican version on one of the recording our good friend Alan sent me, and although I like reggae, it seems to car...

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

A very, very belated Happy Birthday to B4!! It has been a rough ride, but we have made it to Oregon, and things are starting to smooth out! I am sorry I have been away for so long. I can't believe that I thought I would have plenty of time to catch up with you as soon as we got here! I should have k...

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

Friends.... I am writing a quick message because I know I won't have time to post for a little while. Dave accepted the job offer in Portland, and he is starting June 11th which is 24 days from now. (Yikes!) Within that time, we need to pack and move all of our stuff and find a place to live in an a...

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

B4- Yay! This has just crowned my Mother's Day! Not sure when Mother's Day is in other parts of the world, but it is today here in the US (and in Canada also I think). I love the diploma! My favorite part is the quote from The Stranger Song. I love that line so much, because it tells me that even in...

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

Puppet Time?? (fingers crossed)
I'm making this guess after reading your hints and searching the tracklist for the Philip Glass CD of Book of Longing! I still don't have the book yet, but I am hoping I am right this time because I don't want to read it until I get to it.

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

B4- I was going to take a rest but was invigorated, partly by your last comment about my not finding the 2-word titled female song for #12, which encouraged me to search again. That lead me to the answer for #2 instead of the other way round! Or at least I hope these are the answers?.... #12 (part 2...

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

Without even checking more info, I was wondering if Be For Real was the answer to #24? I really should wait until I have more time to check my answers before I keep guessing. I think I have already shared why I am busy, but instead of listing all of my excuses (forgive another Princess Bride clip) h...

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

Hartmut- Thank you for the clip of Leonard bounding onstage! I really can't imagine what it would have been like to have followed him all along and then to see him in concert and see him do something like that. What a cutie. (Yes, the 6th stage that men go through... the one right after 'repulsive',...
