loving Leonard

Here is my image for the new year, the ivy on the south wall of the garden: the intricate beauty of something that might or might not be dead, and there, clinging to the old and bursting into the sun, new growth. If that's not a metaphor for a new year, I don't know what is.

And for all hopeful writers - comme moi, right now, waiting to hear from a publisher about my ms. - here's a lovely sight: J.K. Rowling's synopsis of her manuscript about a boy called Harry Potter, sent to and turned down by many publishers. All we hopefuls can say is: LOL.

Last night's treat - the musical tribute to Leonard Cohen. Halfway through, I posted this on FB:
Sitting in front of the TV, sobbing, watching "The Tower of Song," the tribute concert to Leonard Cohen on CBC. Hearing his son Adam who sounds so like him, k.d lang tearing the roof off with "Hallelujah" - and the man himself with his dignity, his gravitas and sweetness and lust for life - what a mensch. Oh he is missed.
Oh the glory of those songs! Yes you who must leave everything that you cannot control. It begins with your family, but soon it comes around to your soul.Well I've been where you're hanging, I think I can see how you're pinned: When you're not feeling holy, your loneliness says that you've sinned.

Thank you, Leonard.

  1. i am very thankful to Dr. Bolingo for the great work he has done for me & my family. I was married 19 years until a woman came along and destroyed my marriage & my family. The last few years was sad for me without my husband. I'm very thankful & grateful to Dr. Bolingo. since he did the work for me, my husband came back to me & our children, asking us to forgive him. Before Dr. Bolingo's work my husband hated me. Before my husband came back I was very down, frustrated & lonely. The other woman was always in the way. Dr. Bolingo revealed to me that this woman was keeping my husband away and she was even causing me to be sick. I found Dr. Bolingo by recommendation of a friend. at first i wasn't sure because I doubted the spell casting. That lady spell on my husband was to keep him for herself only. 2 days after Dr. Bolingo cast his spell my husband was with me. My husband tells me & shows me everyday how much he loves me and all thanks to Dr. Bolingo. We even have great money success. My life I thought was over is now happy life with my husband and our children. Please if you having big problems like I had or even divorce, contact Dr. Bolingo immediately. He will change your life forever & the best part is that his work don't harm anyone. Contact him immediately through his email: bolingospelltemple@gmail.com or his cell phone number +2348071169835 contact him now and your problems will be solved forever. Thank you for your great work Dr Bolingo
