Thank you for sharing B4! I can't help but wonder what was so grim about the summer of 2007 in Montreal.
Still, I love that poem, especially the last lines at the bottom of the print.

Just a guess, but perhaps it had something to do with the fact that 2007 was the year that Leonard decided (concluded?) that he had to go back on tour to make some money, because his former manager (Kelly Lynch) had stolen every cent from his bank account, he was flat broke, and it was clear that suing her was pointless since she'd spent all the money and was also broke (or at least, that's how the story goes, from what I've read).

So, I think that realising that one is flat broke and has to go back to work at the age of 72 or 73 after having been more-or-less retired for many years would be rather grim.

Vickie,
As always, my pleasure!

Lisa,
That's a great guess and probably has a lot to do with it!
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!
