Re: Smile of Light

My pleasure Geoffrey, and to quote Leonard -
"or to make some woman smile" ....

You have most certainly done that with this image and also lightened up my day :)

Re: Smile of Light

Geoffrey, Thanks for that info about the prison – nice to know you were just visiting ;-) About Rollo – personally, it will make no difference to me where he was born because my DNA covers both contingencies of Norway and Denmark, but I still would like to know which one it is! And btw – I don’t alw...

Re: Smile of Light

Ah Geoffrey, in all things I have one rule and one rule only - it’s easy to remember that way, ha! I try to treat other people the way I’d like to be treated - sometimes it doesn’t always work but I do try :) I do have a good sense of humour – laughter is most important! Besides, it gives one a more...

Re: Smile of Light

Ah Geoffrey, now you’ve mentioned that famous year of 1066 which is most significant in my ancestry I can’t help but spill the beans further ;-) starting with the main man, William The Conqueror. Yes, he is one of my ancestors - actually I’ve heard that 25% of the English population can also make th...

Re: Smile of Light

Thanks Geoffrey, glad you liked it! And you are right; I really should post in this section more often. I’ve been 3 score and ten years in the art profession in some form or another and love it. But researching family history has been commandeering a lot of my time for a while now. It’s absolutely f...

Smile of Light

Kindles Universe Light.jpg “That Light whose smile kindles the Universe” ~ from Adonais by Shelley I reckon those words above by Shelley on the death of his compatriot Keats are also applicable here today. They were the inspiration for my design. I didn’t want to post anything sad to remember Leona...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, I did try to cure my fear of flying with the best motivation possible as you will read here ;-) https://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=34170&start=30#p335114 ....And I’m still trying, so even though I spat the dummy recently because that horrendous episode was so fresh in my ...

Re: Gregory Alan Isakov

Diane, thanks for your kind words! You know, selfishly, it’s kinda comforting for me to post LC info :) And I am also dawdling on reading The Flame – I’m still yet to buy it. Besides, good things come those who wait ;-) Murray, nice to see you posting again! I didn’t know GAI was coming to Australia...

Re: Gregory Alan Isakov

Hi Diane, nice to catch up with you again! I received this below as an LC google alert a few days ago. To read the full article you have to answer some survey questions which I didn’t (and never) do. I found that sentence by Gregory below was interesting in itself alone. http://www.leavenworthtimes....

Re: Cohen: "You can't possibly know what song this is"?

Does this sound familiar to anyone? It sure does :) Welcome to the forum! Just ask and you shall receive! I meant to tell you this sooner but I got side-tracked. If you have the DVD Bird On A Wire Tour 1972 Tony Palmer 2010 version as I have it’s at 45:55 mins. If you don’t yet have the DVD the sam...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, it doesn’t matter about taking your time to respond – in fact, most people just read what others write and don’t feel the need to comment and I do that too at times! Speaking of travelling, I have recently clocked up about 1,400 km in one day “due to have-to-do things in the real world”. An ...
