      Good morning, Teagan. ‘A zippy-quick clockwork hummingbird with a gemstone name’ – I need to sleep on that one…and see what emerges through the ether. It would be such an honour to be involved in any way with the Delta Pearl:) For now I wish you a very creative weekend…I sense that you are at the beginning of a big creative roll…xxx

      Thank goodness we can continue to enjoy the wonderful words and music of this very special man. Wishing you a lovely weekend…It’s very murky, wet and cold in London…a good day to stay in – paint, catch up with TV drams, etc. Yes, keep smiling:)xx

    Leonard Cohen was a major influence on me musically and poetically. I covered many of his songs. But I must admit that I’m probably the only person in the entire world who does NOT like “Hallelujah.” I guess there’s no accounting for tastes, huh? Thanks for posting this.

      Good morning and thank you for your comment. In reality all of our time on this planet is short….almost like a blink of an eye in terms of the big picture. So important to make the most of every single day. Janet:)

    I was not familiar with this poem, and I really enjoyed it, Janet, thank you. And how appropriate for you to post it, with your nature beliefs and spectacular hummingbird painting. Recorded shortly before his death makes it really special too. As always, Janet, a pleasure to be here.
