Moody Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen The Street. Click to hear the song.

Leonard Cohen died November 7, 2016.

Here's a lyric that sticks in my mind--
I know the burden’s heavy 
As you wheel it through the night 
Some people say it’s empty 
But that don’t mean it’s light

I loved moody Leonard Cohen, his deep, raspy voice and heartfelt words that transcended gender, age and race.

I know... what a loss. We still have Tom Waits though:

The wind is making speeches;
And the rain sounds like a round of applause;
Napoleon is weeping in the Carnival saloon;
His invisible fiance is in the mirror;
The band is going home;
It's raining hammers, it's raining nails…..
and it’s time, time that you love.

And that song has one of the most beautiful images ever:

As the dish outside the window
Fills with rain
