Re: "Crack in Everything" post-card

Interesting. Wonder why the publisher's website couldn't get it right. A publisher after all!

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I agree that your lyrics are beautiful, Henning, and I especially agree with their content. I hope you and everyone else who goes have an uplifting way of processing his loss together. This remains a very sad time.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Heartening to read this page of this thread. Will return another time to read more. Totally distracted during this period by the facts of losing Leonard and getting hit with Trump. Crying daily for two months, on little to no provocation save the two preceding facts, made daily functioning all but i...

Re: Lyric video for Leonard's song "Traveling Light"

Yes, emotionally and physically, it was clear that death was taking him. A good way of phrasing that. This video unequivocally makes it clear that Leonard was ready to depart his physical position of powerlessness. This is a comfort in trying to adjust to his absence.

Re: In My Secret Life

And now the tie-in to Treaty. I can easily imagine, I'm your fan, recurrent themes from one song to the next, with Leonard feeling there's still more to be done, with it. Buy and sold are certainly related terms... And Leonard makes them work within each context, still leaving plenty of room for ind...

Re: In My Secret Life

I've only just seen these posts, Kodidog and I'm Your Fan. Such interesting possibilities! The undercover cop and the movie. You support/substantiate your case very well. For me, it's a psychological song, but it wouldn't be the first time Leonard has morphed literal events/situations into psycholog...

Re: Leonard As Humble Conduit

Hi Steven ~ My understanding on the tube reference comes from a discussion here some time ago when it was described in the literal context of our physical, chromosomal structure. Not sure if I'm naming the correct aspect of ourselves, but it came down to our physical, microscopic structure as living...

Re: Shloshim

I don't know what activities are typically associated with Shloshim, Myrtone, but I believe that many of us are very naturally occupying that space of time and reason for it. Thank you for kindly bringing this Jewish custom to our attention.

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

A very warm and loving welcome to both of you, lcbuddy and left. Left... I hope you are able to locate a bootleg of that concert, and that you remained determined in your quest to arrive. I can tell it was magic... and Leonard's encores added to the time you shared with him. Dear lcbuddy ~ Such a mo...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Even as I wrote that, I wondered; since we have many Jeans here who are women, though, and not so many men, I just went with female. My apologies, kind sir :) Thank you for clarifying that for me. Very glad to see you so fully entering in here. Hi Diane. Good to see you, too. I know it's going to br...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

It is so good to see the old regulars gathering around Leonard's latest album, analyzing in depth, as it was with the Book of Mercy; and to see Jean have satisfied what she first expressed upon her arrival, a strong desire to participate in exactly that kind of activity here. I've only read this las...

Re: Bench updates

I'm glad that you are staying on top of this, Jarkko and Dem. It feels more important than ever that it be positively resolved. Thank you both for every effort. I only wish that had happened while Leonard was still alive. That sentence feels so odd.
