Re: never-ending gallery

G, upon giving your "bat and bugs" drawing a close look, I read and re-read the words at the top. I could not recall them, but t I did sense a cadence that reminded me of "Tonight Will be Fine," so I called on Mr Google and discovered these two additional verses not on the studio album: Oh I've look...

Re: I rarely write no more, me

Geoffrey, I rather like the photo, thanks for sharing it. If you were to write a book or assemble a collection of art, that is the photo that should appear on the cover. I like the background--troubled sky or ocean, hard to discern which.

Re: I rarely write no more, me

Geoffrey, if you have not already read it you should read "Seven Mysteries of Life" by Guy Murchie, it contains some of the missing jigsaw puzzle pieces.

Re: I rarely write no more, me

A few points that I'd like to make. those behind religion are mostly unscrupulous, misogynistic men concerned with money, control, indoctrination, power, psychological manipulation, etc. This group is a subset of all those who make it their mission to attain raw power and the wealth that comes with ...

Re: Polly Samson's novel about Hydra in the 60s (and David Gilmour's perfoming Cohen songs)

Just started reading this novel, as soon as it takes you to Hydra you can visualize everything in an extraordinary way if you've been lucky enough to have been there. Samson has a very appealing writing style. It is interesting that Polly Sampson's chose to write about Hydra and Leonard, I never wou...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hello Geoffrey, What are you up to now that your notebook is filled? I am curious, have you played/sung any songs from the later albums? As from the beginning, Leonard's lyrics overshadow his music, but there are some great tunes on the later (Old Ideas and subsequent) albums, just wondering if you'...

Re "Generation Gap," three months ago I would have commented, "That's a thought-provoking little drawing." Today I would say, "They don't look six feet apart to me."

Re: never-ending gallery

...So where the hell was Biggles when you needed him last Saturday? I don't get it. This is an Ian Anderson lyric from "Thick as a Brick." "Biggles" was a fictional RFC pilot and hero in adventure books written by W. E Johns beginning in the early 1930s. Children in the 1930s and 1940s marveled at ...

What I see is Ian Anderson if he grew his hair again.

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Bev, so happy to see that you're fine and well! Having always been awed by your Cohen-knowledge and ability to dig up old trivia, I direct you to a question recently posed by RaymondJones in the "Everything Else" forum section about the 1976 Europe Tour. You may be the only one who can help RaymondJ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Thanks, glad you liked it! (it's a watercolour painting, actually). Have you ever tried your hand at art? It's a very enjoyable diversion! Lisa, the problem with me and art is, I am wired for numbers and details and not style and nuance. I think this is termed as being left-brained. A right-brained...

Re: never-ending gallery

More outdoor news to report: Right on time, at the beginning of April, the marsh marigolds started blooming. Deep yellow flowers with shiny green leaves in case you've never seen any. One of the rare instances where we planted something in just the proper spot (soil, moisture, sun, etc.) and it thri...

Geoffrey: I am honored to be included in your famous blue notebook, and glad that you are keeping some kind of record. I told Joann I had been published, but she remains skeptical.

Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey, I've loved that little story from "Beautiful Losers" since the day I first read it. You left out the best part, however, Catherine T's comment after she stood up slowly, a comment deserved of a place in the Understatement Hall of Fame: "I guess I owe you all an apology." I need to read BL ...
