I'm not painting today because I am getting supplies ready for an intense week of painting coming up. I am listening to music, music that is full of soul and poetry. Doing that is not easy when the beloved creators of the music, who have shared with us their heartfelt genius and allowed us to pour the sound waves into our own life space, are gone.
We've lost two more, Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell. Perhaps two different beings in many ways. But both of them have given us their Art, their Poetry; poetry that is likely to be with us long after we ourselves are gone.
R.I.P ... Leon and Leonard.
Hummingbird - Leon Russell
Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen
