Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

B4, Your post came right after mine, and I have only had a small chance to look for that live album on Amazon... it is not there from what I can see, but I will keep looking for it elsewhere. I would love to have it. I remember reading about it in the Simmons biography. She made it sound like a touc...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4! I can't imagine your post not being compelling, so I am sorry you lost it. But, I like what you said about those last 3 albums, because I feel that is why I love them so much. I don't have a new topic, but I have thought from today. I was on my way home from work, listening to the live Field Comm...

Re: Discussing "The Fool" and similar things

Jean, I would not say that you are unconvincing. Maybe my ego is hard to convince. Or does the fact that I recognise my own ego prove that maybe my ego is smaller than I feared after all? Or does the fact that I am asking prove it is ginormous? Who knows, right? I have continued to read your foolish...

Re: 'The times they are a-changing...' Montreal concert

I have been watching this thread because I am attending the tribute concert in Montreal, and I am curious about some of the sentiments here. I have not been as fortunate as most of you in ever seeing Leonard live. However, I have watched the available DVDs of his concerts and after seeing the I'm Yo...

Re: Addressing a dead person

Geoffry-
Don't know you at all and have only seen a couple of your posts (being new to the forum), but in lieu of being able to click 'like' or even better the 'laugh' emoticon, I am compelled to say that your post cracked me up!
Carry on,
Vickie

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

.....just wait until you listen to the very last track on the last live album Can’t Forget – A Souvenir Of The Grand Tour 2015. In fact, Alan filmed LC performing this live at the Sydney Opera House. It’s so different to the normal banter... B4- I forgot to tell you how much I loved the intro on th...

Re: Discussing "The Fool" and similar things

Thank you for your reply Jean, Yes, I will continue reading and trust that I will understand more as I go along. That's how things normally work when I elect for patience anyway. You said there wasn't a lesson at the end of your story, but I will bet there is a lesson somewhere in the story, or many...

Re: Discussing "The Fool" and similar things

Thank you Jean for starting this thread. As you know from our discussions in other threads, I wanted to comment on The Fool and had a question or two. I decided to read The Fool from the beginning. And I have started to do that, but before I continue.... I should confess that I have struggled with l...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Alan- Your Sting quote made me laugh out loud and Dave too when I read it to him. I was happy to hear that you are with us daily. I am here daily too, but really need to stop spending so much time in posting... not only do I have work to do, but sometimes a little tape on my mouth would be a good th...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hello--- Thank you all for chiming in on La Manic! At first I was only curious about this song after hearing the audience's response to it on Can't Forget. Plus the fact that there have been only a few (is it 3?) songs that Leonard either sang entirely in French or sang a good portion of the song in...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Oh you guys…. I really love this thread. I could have listened to ‘our man’ without you, but I would have been adrift. I love that Jean has continued to remind us of the very complicated points that Leonard has made regarding spirituality and his take on that. Please continue to do that Jean, and to...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi Jean! Thank you for reiterating some of our conversation and then adding more to make it easier for me to understand. .....Such moments also occur in situations of stress, of extreme danger or pain: our body-mind continuum does the right thing, without letting our ratiocinating ego interfere and ...

Jean, Regarding this first subject of your post, although you say it wasn't the main subject, you certainly had a special way of saying it. I really liked it. As fo...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Oh B4 - I love all of your additional lyrics, because they tell us so much. A word here or there, or even a comma can make such a difference, especially for someone trying to catch up. It helps a lot to see his progression. On the other hand, I was very upset regarding the crocodile shooting. I am s...
