Prayer for Peace

Hi Lizzytysh~ Prayer is good when purified of all rancour. It is impotent when tainted by any tendency to impugn the motives (and even the faith) of those burdened with duties and obligations few can imagine, comprehend or bear. "Whatever makes a soldier sad will make a killer smile"LC I am reminded...

Hi George~ Not bad, by George! not bad at all. Really like: "If GOD is the man that decided to create nature is the woman who served it up on a plate" One small, though presumptuous, suggestion: you might try tweaking that 3rd last line; 'twould get the rhythm right. (Typo/spellcheck too) ~Makera :w...

The Way of Truth

Humble thanks,

To Lizzytysh & Vesuvius for your perspicacious critiques.

Confession: I had to 'edit' when I noticed I'd transposed 2 lines in my own

Hi fellow Unitarian Universalist/Neo-Pagan/Liberal Christian,Quaker/Sikh/ Mahayana Buddhist/ New Age Thinkers :lol: Interesting, if somewhat limited (and limiting) quiz. Not belonging to any category and taking a quiz to find one does seem a tad oxymoronic. Seems Universal Unitarian (oh, whatever) i...

Hi Lizzytysh~ I'm so thrilled to find someone else who has even heard of Dory Previn! (I think I spotted another on this forum). I miss her and was never able to find her cd's in the stores. Now I'm finally on line I can start to replace all the records I lost (vanished -- along with the storage com...

Hi fellow travellers ~ "If music be the food of love, play on". I have very eclectic but selective tastes in 'music'. In the category of singer-songwriters I prefer the true poets with a mystic touch. e.g: Don MacLean ~ "Chain Lightning","Believers", "In Jerusalem" Johnny Cash ~ "The Man In Black" ,...

favourite LC line(s)

Hi lizzytysh ~ thanks for the welcome.Don't worry, the question was only rhetorical (I'll figure this stuff out ) :) eventually. I'm Shocked that a true LC fan would not recognize any line from his masterpiece album "Various Positions"!! The song is "Coming Back to You". That album really stirred up...

Hi Linda ~ Greetings fellow 'travelers'. This is very new to me (first time on Internet ) so I'm not familiar with this strange language (what's a "bbCode"?). Anyway, my favourite line is ...."I'll have to deal with envy when You choose the precious few". So epitomizes Mr Cohen's wonderful gift for ...
