Can't we be serious for a moment?

Four fantastic fugues, Georges
Fatalistic forays into full-fledged futility

Now, is it res-erection
or resurrection?

Thank you so much for these
They elucidate and minister to my mood.

Love

A Pearl

Taigaku, this is exquisite. Each rereading reveals more. It reminds me of Rumi "I used to be shy You made me sing I used to refuse things at table Now I shout for more wine. In somber dignity, I used to sit on my mat and pray. Now children run through and make faces at me." Esential Rumi Peace Barbara

Hail Heretic, er Ms. Heretic et al.

You certainly have given the trendy *women* empowerment books their proper place. I agree with you. The only point I would like to make is that there are very real consequences resulting from centuries of second class status, both cultural and psychological. Individual women have always risen to the...

Georges Ves

Georges
Thanks for the comment.
Now, can you tell me why this phrase
popped into my mind after reading it:

Candy is dandy
But liquor is quicker

Did my animus make me do it? 8)

Ves
I couldn't agree... more or less. :shock:

Gods in Every Man

Wise words, Gennelle. An exceptional woman I knew, an expert on power equity groups, put it this way: To journey on the male/female continuum requires different things from men and women. For women, coming into consciousness and rejecting the dominant paradigm is like taking off a heavy overcoat! Fo...

Gotcha!

Cute Byron! OK Makera, I am going to commit that definition to memory, especially for my UK friends... although I can guarantee they will come back with the old saw: You Yanks don't get irony!

What about 'git' and 'sod'? :P

Love

G'day! Dinkum, sheila, koala, platypus? End of Stereotype

Just when I thought I had *wanker* sorted out! Makera, I'm all ears. Although Leonard has publicly apologized for 'naming' the 'nameless' in the case of CH#2, I still think Janis came out on top. Not ultimately, of course: 'better read than dead.' Babz "No one needs to be convinced how suddenly it i...

Goddesses in Every Woman

Brava, Gennelle, A stunning poem! And the Emily 'wisdom running high' reminds me of the way my daughter slides the Goddess song in between two of her rockin' get-down sexy blues tunes. It often happens that people approach her after a performance to ask about it. ( She sings the R of the G starting ...

Brilliant, Makera

That couple of lines always impressed me... It's easy to see the self-defeating aspect of "I need you" as a plaintive appeal, but how brilliant to identify the false bravado of "I don't need you" as just more jivin' Leonard sure did get inside our heads.. well it seemed that way to me at the time. B...

No Confusion of Dunces but Profusions of Praise

I'm staggered by all the sweetness flowing my way. And yes, what a glory of beautiful names and brilliant minds. Hi Paul, my love. Ah, Goddesses. An inexhaustible subject... and scholarship piling up as we speak. I wrote a poem which my daughter set to music. When she performs it, the loving feminin...

Boobie is Blushing

Dearest Elsie, You embarass me... but it's worth it to see your name and share your thoughts. Through any and every troubled time in the ng you were the voice of honesty, clarity, and compassion. You used to make very funny jokes out of the blue, too. Thanks for the Litany of Names... Blessed be the...

Thanks, Biggie!
Doesn't it just give you a chill, the far-reaching,
elemental, effects of Leonard and his work! And
he, always ready to do the generous thing... That's
Our Man!
Love

Esoterica

:roll: ng = Nothing more recondite than 'newsgroup' Listed through Google groups as: alt.music.leonard-cohen I started posting there late in '97... racked up about 700 posts over the years.
