Portrait #1

david - 11.02.2008 020-Edit-Edit.jpg

This was taken many years ago.  I don’t do portraits often; not confident in myself this way in photograph, and visually I’m usually taken by other things that are interests of mine.  This one, I came across looking upon my archive of photographs that is now a lot of my life and, personally, for my own emotional reasons, needed to finish this.

I know it’s soft in focus but that adds a touch of beauty and tenderness for me.   #Love

Poetic: Every Heart to Love Will Come, But Like a Refugee

Every Heart To Love Will Come

The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Dont dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be

The wars they will
Be fought again
The holy dove
Be caught again
Bought and sold
And bought again
The dove is never free

Chorus

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
Thats how the light gets in

We asked for signs

The signs were sent
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
The widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see

Cant run no more
With the lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But theyve summoned up
A thundercloud
And theyre going to hear from me

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
Thats how the light gets in

You can add up the parts
But you wont have the sum
You can strike up the march
There is no drum
Every heart
To love will come
But like a refugee

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
Thats how the light gets in

Leonard Cohen ‘Anthem’

Anthem Live in Milano, Italy 2008.

Portrait · As The Mist Leaves No Scars

As the mist leaves no scar
On the dark green hill,
So my body leaves no scar
On you, nor ever will.

As many nights endure
Without a moon or star,
So will we endure
When one is gone and far.

Leonard Cohen
