Re: What Great Change

Brilliant. It reminds me what I owe to my teachers. I think I'm unusual in that my experience of school from beginning to end was positive and I was blessed with some dedicated an very human teachers.

Camp

By the dull electric lamp arose a vision so intense, undimmed by squalor, stench and damp in that Polish prison camp. Emblems of their offence, pink triangle and yellow star, tattoo just below the sleeve a hunger for tomorrow, for reprieve. A hope that what began in sorrow would not end in grief. A ...

Re: Peter Goes West

Hi Lizzie ~ Thanks for reading and commenting. It's much appreciated. I'm looking forward to seeing Leonard in Lucca in a couple of weeks. :) Will you get the chance to see any European shows?

Re: LUCCA, ITALY (July 9, 2013) NOW ON SALE

I suspect it will be the usual Italian scrum like last time. In Florence in 2010 both the ticket collection (they said they would only be avaialble 1 hours before the commencement!)and seating were chaotic with a good proportion of the crowd entering the piazza after the concert had started. I hones...

Eh? It's not random. There's a pretty strong narrative there!

Re: Steve Turner

I suppose I reacted to it with a 'but' for every line.... and no not all of us believe Jesus, Muhammad and Buddha were equally good! Equally bad I'd say.

Re: If You See Me Go By, Put Up A Prayer

Tempest has a lot of writing to get excited about. I don't understand the muted reaction to it compared to say Modern Times. Dylan's paying much more attention to form, metre, rhyme and narrative on this album. Lovely stuff.

I am always looking for an excuse to visit Lucca, such a gorgeous romantic city. Leonard and lucca is the perfect combination for me. Looking forward to hearing the newer material too. Not too long to wait now.

Re: LUCCA, ITALY (July 9, 2013) NOW ON SALE

Help from someone familiar with Florence would be appreciated. We are planning a vacation around the Lucca concert and will be spending several days in Florence before moving on to Lucca. A hotel called Mulino intrigues us and gets nice reviews. It is a rehabilitated mill about 5 miles west of cent...

Re: LA Times court case report

The problem with these experiences is that they leave a long lasting and deep impression on the psyche. I rehearsed for years what I would do if I ever saw my harasser again and I find myself looking at people over twenty years after the event because they resemble her and thinking 'that could be he...

Re: LA Times court case report

I was once the victim of stalking by an obsessive with delusions so I've read a bit about the subject. There are gender differences... male stalkers are more likely to use violence or threats of violence, women to try to destroy reputations etc... I hope she can be helped to find her way out of this...

Re: Late Discovers of Mr. Cohen

I discovered LC at 13 when my sister who was 16 at the time received a cassette tape from a German penfriend. How she laughed at the contents and how it killed any romantic fantasies she'd been having about her correspondent. I on the other hand was hooked and soon found my way into the back catalog...
