Feelings and words are very important to me and those that go into oblivion well they are gone. On an...

Songster and Elizabeth: I am not familiar with the specific religious imagery that Songster refers to in the song. But I think the song is more about love, passionate love than it is about religion. In fact the song itself refers to this ambiguity twice in the song, first at the beginning where he s...

Hi All: Yes indeed Jeannieb's posting is extremely courageous, esp. when there is so much stigma against such diagnoses. I work in the field, so all I can say is if your quality of life is not compromised without it, more power to you. But I don't think one need do what Leonard has done because it w...

Hi Elizabeth: You are kind....thank you. Yes, I tried everything you said (for once I can say that...lol) but the pasting which has been a lifesaver for me countless times did not work because just as I was wrapping up the post I had copied and pasted a sentence. So the the copy feature was depleted...

L Cohen & R Balsekar (Advaita)

Songster I like the way you ask Leonard to snap out of it. I think that is precisely what Leonard has been doing for the last few decades. And if he sees it fit to follow Zen or Advaita that is his prerogative. But I don't think you get it - remotely. It has been said that a little knowledge is a da...

Spoken Word Poems by Leonard Cohen

Hi All: I have listened to Leonard's reading (with background music) of "Democracy" on the CD titled "The United States of Poetry" countless times. And everytime I hear it Leonard's "gift of a golden voice" touches me deeply. Its almost sinister and ambiguous chemistry of words in the poem, makes me...

For Anne

"Poetry on the way" is a program which has poems written inside the subway car here in Toronto, Canada. And perhaps other places as well.
