Thanks for the music of another recently lost Québécois.

I like this Hendrix cover that youtube kindly suggested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQN0qeCdJeI

So glad you alighted back on the forum, stubborn friend:-)

Au revoir.

Blue Alert, may I say.

Expressing feelings through artistic voice of others feels sometime like something good to do.

Like Bartleby did with this soft, beautiful poem in the other thread.

A prophet of doom Leonard Cohen ? Naaaaaaaaa : Superfullmoon, yes.


Just listen to him. You hear it. It is against doom. Against darkness.

Doom happens. Dark times are here. Since a while.

He faced it all and then enlighten it, by reflection of some Light of him. This happens in the inner world. This is what I meant. If you listen carefully.

Lizzy,

"Jean" : it's a man's name in French. (My, oh my!)

Yes, Bartleby's poem is gentle and tender. It alludes to fragrances. Like (Leonard and Anjani's) Blue Alert: There's perfume burning in the air/Bits of beauty everywhere; like On the Level: Your crazy fragrance all around/Your secrets all in view.

I am reminded of The Beauty Of Death by Khalil Gibran, which begins:

Let me sleep, for my soul is intoxicated with love and
Let me rest, for my spirit has had its bounty of days and nights;
Light the candles and burn the incense around my bed, and
Scatter leaves of jasmine and roses over my body;
Embalm my hair with frankincense and sprinkle my feet with perfume,
And read what the hand of Death has written on my forehead.

This is a nice read: http://www.techofheart.co/2008/08/perfu ... story.html
The one eternal perfume is the one that smells of Nothing of God;

Just listen to him.
If he is a prophet of doom, then he is also a prophet of hope: "The moon is my sorrow. The moon is my lantern." (That wonderfully succinct quote stolen from John Hiatt, discovered in this music section - I love it!)

But shhhh. Just listen - I agree.

Walsh, his identity, it's as Irish as the rest, actually. Multifacetted people are we.

As I mourn the artist, which will live forever has he did a line or... (O.K. we known, he ?) I sometimes skip the reality of the death of the... (we all know this either). Still the sphere of the private... life (eh oui...) to me, this is to say : a sacred right to be respected. But I feel a pang every time it hits me, the dark reality.
