'Now the crickets are singing...'
Thank you thank you immeasurably Leonard Cohen, I hardly know where to begin, for the light and profound grace, the poetry and music ... the humour too... for the spaces and tones and nuances between the light and dark, their beauty, shapes, playfulness, seriousness, literariness, colour, sparks and excitingly warm possibilities...the spaces I love... and for helping me for almost 30 years and however many more...
You are so very present always
To more gentleness and poetry in the world.
Gentle this soul
'Ahh the crickets are singing
The Vesper bells ringing
The cat's curled asleep in his chair...
She said, "I'll be with you
My shawl wrapped around you
My hand on your head when you go"
And the night comes on
And it's very calm...'
Goodnight Leonard Cohen x
