Re: prayer

I don't expect anyone to respond to this- it's for the record, really. I tend to work on things forever before sharing them but this time I shared what I wrote the same day I wrote it. Now, a few drafts later: I woke up this morning a moment after my fear and drove to the monastery far out of town, ...

Re: Come Healing

Thanks, holydove. The Heart beneath is teaching To the broken Heart above Can anyone argue against those two lines being two of the best lines ever written? A deep place within us all & within all that exists - underneath all the chaos & brokenness of this earthly realm - a place of absolute infinit...

Come Healing

Let's have a little chat about this song, ok? Someone reminded me yesterday of the Book of Mercy thread- now that was the forum at its best. I wish we could work on this together. I remember reading somewhere Joe Way had said that this song had particular meaning for him because of something he was ...

prayer

monastery.jpg I drove to the monastery far out of town, down thirteen miles of dirt road, where I gave the two-fingered wave particular to roads such as this to the few cars I passed going the other way. I went straight to the seat someone built into a cottonwood, and there I saw the sun on the riv...

Re: youth

Hahaha. You're right- 'casual red cloth' and 'sitting place' are not the best phrases I've ever heard.

Re: Great article

Just read this and was going to post it here and then thought of my tendency to blurt stuff out here before doing any kind of looking around. Pico Iyer says, ' ...it's more about hauntedness and these people who occupy places in our head and we feel closer to than our own friends and family even tho...

on the back of a cartoon coaster in the blue tv screen light

In Sylvie Simmons' new book, she writes, "Leonard's was the face Joni drew on a map of Canada in her song 'A Case of You,' in which a man declared himself to be as 'constant as a northern star.'" What? Is A Case of You about Leonard? Is this common knowledge? I'm having trouble not having my mind bl...

Re: Favorite and not-so-favorite LC picture?

Thank you, Tchocolatl! The YMCA tshirt seems like such an off-screen kind of image of Leonard- like Leonard in his jammies or something (though there is, apparently, a photo of Leonard in striped jams: striped jams.jpg It doesn't count, however- I'm sure you'll know what I mean. Does nobody get to s...

Re: Favorite and not-so-favorite LC picture?

Please somebody find out about that Hollywood YMCA photo. Please.

This is a photo that's brought me a lot of comfort, and is one of the reasons I kept Sylvie Simmons' book off my radar (until I bought it last week and can't get enough. But Portrait of an Artist, Sylvie, really? Get it right.):

Listen- when I thought of not-so-favorite photos the Marianne hands black and white was the first thing that came to mind- and I couldn't find it. Hahaha.
