Having reminded myself how much the three words “gentle this soul” convey over on another thread, I am was thinking about the power of just one line, or part of a line: We are so lightly here Take this longing Show me slowly the wild regret I know from your eyes the dove is never free --------------...

ooops, I have been wondering about Welsh meet-ups in another thread somewhere and now I find this. This forum is truly labyrinthine. Hope you enjoyed your birthday, John. Bridgend is "somewhere between Swansea and Cardiff". 21st September is a good day. Just a thought.

"Gentle this soul" are very beautiful words of Leonard's, Fljotsdale, and here, under such a title, is a good place to read them.

Hi friends. I have been dipping in here for a few months and thought I would get around to posting. My indoctrination was in my student years in the early 80’s when I first heard SoLaH. Joan of Arc was my favourite then. Still is, sometimes. What hooked me was Leonard’s deep, deliberate, resonant vo...

Weather Forecast by Bob Seger: I awoke last night to the sound of thunder How far off I sat and wondered Started humming a song from 1962 Ain't it funny how the night moves When you just don't seem to have as much to lose Strange how the night moves With autumn closing in Weather forecast by Jethro ...

Rob I love your suggestion that Delilah would be a no-no, followed by your second thoughts that perhaps it would be an idea after all. For those outside Wales: Tom Jones’ ‘Delilah’ spontaneously and joyously erupts amongst groups of drinkers as the night wears on in pubs across the land. I think Leo...

It seems there is a small collection of South Wales fans here. I have corresponded with Rob in the past (Hi Rob), and, briefly, with John (Hi John). Also, I now see, Altinkum. Hi to you too. Do you people meet up at all? I live in Bridgend, and would relish the novelty of being in the company of peo...

Elizabeth, Tchocoatl thank you for your words. It is my view that much of mankind is separated to a greater or lesser degree from his true nature. He uses fear and greed and hatred as a defence against experiencing this vulnerable, moral, and tender-hearted true self. Such defences have become woven...

Dear friends, I have looked in on this forum from time to time but have never felt the need to post a comment before because you all say everything I would say about Leonard, and more. Yet I feel I want to post on this topic. My mother was born in 1930's Ireland to an umarried mother. She was wrench...
