Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Violet, Thank you very much for all your effort. The association to Gauguin’s painting is very compelling. Another association for the “yellow sign” at the end of the poem is to the one Jews were forced to ware by the Nazis (and in some places in Europe already in Medieval times); allusions to the ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

FOR WILF AND HIS HOUSE When young the Christians told me how we pinned Jesus like a lovely butterfly against the wood, and I wept beside paintings of Calvary at velvet wounds and delicate twisted feet. But he could not hang softly long, your fighters so proud with bugles, bending flowers with their...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Thank you Doron for the links and comments, and for the image appreciation.

I'm taking in that poem, but just to thank you in the meantime.

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

However, my question is whether what I cited is true of Scientology. Is anyone here versed in this?

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I'll direct this question to Doron, but to anyone else who is versed in this, please join in. I'm just wondering -- especially given the Christ imagery in this album -- when did the figure of Jesus first appear in Leonard's work? Had he only ever conjured him in his haunting Suzanne that would have ...

Re: "Elaboration of a tube" line in "Going Home"?

Hi, I'm your fan. That would seem to open another area of investigation, the relationship of LC's work to that of Aleister Crowley and his forerunners. However, I was hoping someone here knew enough about Scientology to confirm whether the very specific reference to a "tube" could be sourc...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

Hi Geoffrey. I love those kind of days.. sun and snow and blue sky. It's good you had such a day. I have to say I am by no means a Winehouse expert. I'd need to do a lot more research to claim that. However, when I was looking into it there was a lot more information to be found online given it was ...

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

I just checked this thread, and was making a correction to my post, and instead another post got started.

Re: "come forth from the cloud of unknowing . . ."

well, let us compare obituaries: please bear with me for a moment while i air one or two thoughts. when amy winehouse, also of the jewish faith, was found dead some while ago, the news was released immediately. although she was very famous, the press gave her passing considerably less attention tha...

Re: "come north from the cloud of nowing . . ."

That's a lovely photo of the two of you. the trouble is that other writer, one who goes by the name of 'mollydog', said we should take it somewhere else: "it should not be associated with this forum" - she said. that is why i don't have much self confidence, and i didn't really know what t...

Re: "come north from the cloud of nowing . . ."

this quest for transparency has been met with a suspicious silence by those who know the truth. my instinct tells me that all i have managed so far to do is incur the restrained wrath of leonard's family, his manager, very possibly the webmaster of this site - as well as the loyal moderators and as...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

"The only moment that you can live here comfortably in these absolutely irreconcilable conflicts is in this moment when you embrace it all and you say "Look, I don’t understand a fucking thing at all – Hallelujah!” Violet, I really appreciate all of your views. I'm not trying to start any...
