Re: The Bells

Buffy Sainte-Marie is very wonderful - have you heard/seen her singing: "God is Alive, Magic is Afoot"? Absolutely beautiful. (When I read Beautiful Losers, I saw her as Catherine Tekakwitha. Buffy is touring and singing - do go to see her. Her singing is pure and a soulful shade of blue. Just came...

Re: Lines that get you every time

That is one of my favourite lines and I posted it earlier in this thread, but I see it as two people who have known and loved each other over many years; their love undergoing changes as the years go by but always loving each other no matter what happens. Hi B4real, Yes, I had read them, it was in ...

When a child leaves home to enter a new phase in life.

You know my love goes with you
As your love stays with me,
It's just the way it changes
Like the shoreline and the sea,

Re: Something Positive - Something Negative

my initial impression was the positive/negative aspect of some of his words. Thank you for this very interesting question. I like to think of contrasting or complementing idea's rather the positive/negative. Can one idea exist without having counter part; is there an urn without the profiles? Howev...

Hi MaryB Thank you for your warm welcome to the forum. I'm honored to be named in the same sentence as 'humbled'. I find his posts very good to read. Finding this forum and its members is like boring into a well full of information and thoughts about Leonard Cohen and his work. Good for quenching a ...

Re: Who By Fire

Different spelling in Who by Fire in different books:

And who by brave assent, who by accident
or
And who by brave ascent, who by accident

Which reading would be the right one? and why one or the other?

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Hi everybody, I'm not quite new to the forum. Been visting on and off since febr. 2009. It is a great place. I absolutely love the discussions on the LC's songs thread and like 'humbled' I am "astounded by the many ingenious interpretations" of the lyrics and the dept of the discussions. I was intro...

Re: The Window

Today I found an interview with LC in Rasky's book about the making of the film 'The Song of LC'', where they talk about The Window. I will quote a passage: Question: 'Why do you stand by the window abandoned to beauty and pride? Was it something you say? LC: "I tried many versions of that song and ...

Re: The Window

Thank you Lili. Reading your explanation of this song brought tears to my eyes. You put into words exactly my vague thoughts and ideas about this beautibul song. Especially this: I have heard (possibly it was mentioned in the previous thread) that Leonard was inspired to write this by either his mot...

Re: The Window

I have loved reading the earlier thread on The Window and found it very very interesting. I wanted to know the meaning of the word 'letter' beacause I have translated most of LC lyrics into Dutch. This word has more meanings than one. By explaining about of the 22 letters of creation from the Kaball...
