I'm just so happy that there is something to look forward to from Leonard. I miss those days when he was active and we had a little inside look here. I hope Jarkko knows what joy he facilitated in us and, I think, in Leonard as well. Nice to have patience again.

It brings back so many happy memories .....

I was thinking that, too, Bev. It's like the good ol' days. :)
I love your hummingbird, and yopietro's "Don't listen to you? :D ", Jarkko. You're masterful at all this... with plenty of experience! :D 8) :D

Yes, Lizzy, definitely shades of it that's for sure!

Hmmm..... A hummingbird that’s physically flying..... gathering nectar (songs) from places (albums) it has been.
Moving on from its original home and other known places of habitation.
From Recent Songs, then The Future and its last appearance on You Want It Darker.... to ......
But it is known that a hummingbird can fly backwards too as is proved by Jarkko’s animated image :) So....
Or maybe it's simply to do with the title of what ever is coming next!

Still, I keep thinking back to my very first thought on this thread -

Bev, it seems to me, you got the right word 8)
I love the idea that Jarkko has reinvented Hitchcockian suspense, after so many decades, and calls it ironically "patience".
(Sure thing, that's a good, joyful version of suspense, which sounds odd unless you remember the modern Frankenstein playing piano like Leon Russell)

That's another great one:

And it goes well with Lizzie's insight:

Ah, Roman, that brought a smile to my dial :)
Plus I've been cursed (or blessed) with a vivid imagination and I've been thinking about what I've just written above and could add this -

Leonard said in 2016 that he wrote a lot of songs with hummingbirds in them that never came to anything and did mentioned one called Hummingbird Hill. As far as I know, it’s not to do with Don’t Listen to the Hummingbird.

And on the "No Words" speculation, most of the original songs I was thinking of are not originally hummingbird connected or maybe they are if you count where the associated inspiration for them came from ;-)

OK, I stop flapping my wings for now and regain some calmness by looking out my window and watching the sea eagles soaring gracefully on the thermal winds :)

Lizzy, Roman probably means that's where Andrew still is. Check out the previous page.

Yes, that's it, thanks.

(Sea eagles? That makes me think about a new Forum challenge: share your window view!)

Another great news, mixed feelings though - based on the poems published online.
LC loses so much being translated from English to Russian (objectively: words are longer + declensions + conjugations).
Anyway, that's no doubt megacool! Not sure if I'll read the entire book, but I'm glad it's somewhere on its way to me.

:lol: Could be, Bev. Yet, via a rather circuitous route, I found a linking of you, Cairns, and cojones. So, now, I'll return to the previous page and see what I find there. This reminds me of the Scavenger Hunt game we played at the New York Event. :D

That's really funny (and brought back to light by DrHGuy just a few days ago)! :lol: :D
