Contemplative Monday


'Like a bird on wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free......'

...Leonard Cohen

    1. At the shop yesterday I noticed this crow on a wire.....I waited.
      Felt a lot better when I realized the symbolism right before my eyes. Leonard is free now.

    1. Always good to try to keep things as simple as possible, Margo.
      Taken me a lifetime to learn this.
      But it works.

    1. Well John, I figure Leonard was comparing himself to a drunk at a midnight choir service because he felt they both had something in common......that is both looking to be free of the things that keep them pinned down to the earth's drudgery. IMHO
