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.

Hi June.. I had just written the last post when I saw your note.

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...

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

I find this entire thread horrible. There is a tone of flamboyance to some of the posts. It seems to be a Show Trial of the circumstances. I don't blame Geoffrey entirely for this. It is maybe no more than 98.6% his fault. Discussions about the death of a great man could, I posit, be conducted with...

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

.. nothing to do with the death certificate business.. but a little bit of poetry for you Geoffrey that I just came upon while online. It's to say that perhaps this thread has also to do with all of our comforting each other: Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slep...

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

Hi Geoffrey. You know, when I referred to "public records" I thought you understood that that pertained to obtaining a death certificate. That's how a death is publicly recorded. June, That was terribly kind and helpful to put together those excised portions of pertinent information. I had...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Violet, "Pain eclipses everything. And through its violence there’s the conflation of God and self: "that smashed the Cosmic Model that blinded every View.” But then the mortal steps back: “And please don’t make me go there, tho’ there be a God or not.”" I'm not so sure that it is a ...

Re: Violet and Sir Chris - the sweet truth revealed

As you can probably tell, I used to write that adventurous fashion jargon for the J. Peterman Catalog.. Havana - SS17 "Cuba - Magnificent in her colonial timeworn grandeur is alive with a riot of succulent colours, textures and patterns and buzzing with centuries of native and inherited culture...

Re: Violet and Sir Chris - the sweet truth revealed

How on earth did you find that?

You just reminded me of those "work of art" panties I once linked to here.. it was a place in London.. but I don't recall the name -- really gorgeous..

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

OK Violet, I understand your witty commentary but actually that was simply Sir Chris in drink. I think his apparent misogyny should be forgiven, let us be among "the few". "Here's to the few who forgive what you do, and the fewer who don't even care" I can't help but comply, my ...
