  1. So happy for those who have a passion for music and will be able to study it and play it because of that program. There will also be those who discover or develop a passion for music through that program. Thanks, Malahide.
  2. Same reaction here. My reaction to the ending of the poem: Hmmm...what the heck is she talking about. Actually, the first 2 sections of the poem (verses?) are in a style that reminds me of what my own poetry-writing was likely to be like years ago. Poems I would write back then were likely to be similar to the writing there, saying the types of things Elizabeth Bishop says there & in a similar way. Interesting.
  3. I clicked on the link. Hmmm. A poem about the unkindness of people who forget a friend. I like trying to give people the benefit of the doubt, but such folk do exist who'd throw a friend under the bus - especially for some perceived benefit to themselves. Shallow maybe.
  4. Amazing grace - / how sweet the sound/ that saved a wretch like me./ I once was lost,/ but now am found,/ was blind but now I see/..was bound but now I'm free.

  5. "Steve McQueen has challenged intolerance his entire career." - Bono. I'm thinking he's referring to the Steve McQueen who was in the movies 'The Magnificent Seven,' 'The Sand Pebbles,' etc. Unless he was referring to a different Steve McQueen, then unfortunately it should be the past tense. It's good to see U2 get a visionary award.
  6. "...love letters Mandela wrote to his wife Minnie from his prison cell" - The Desert Sun. Of course that would be his wife Winnie.
  7. "...a vision without a promise is just a fantasy, and we're not interested in that." - Bono. Love it.
  8. Amazing grace/ how sweet the sound/ that saved a wretch like me/ I once was lost/ but now am found/ was blind but now I see/..was bound but now I'm free.

      But Now I Seee..OOooooohh (Edge begins to play that warm, tender Guitar Effect that precedes the Main-Guitar Theme) and we float about into the Streets With No Name...

  9. Speaking of kaleidoscopes, today, on the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's passing, here's 1 of the most famous references to a kaleidoscope in all of music-lyrics history: "Somebody calls you. You answer quite slowly. A girl with kaleidoscope eyes."
  10. "Delivery or take out? " Now you've got me laughing, U2LAWoman.

    Hello hello Alcon. Didn't they put the claws up for sale? Or were they just talking about it? (I'm remembering from reading the 360-tour book that came w/the subscription package recently.) But I think they'll be making a move towards arena-sized shows anyways where the claws probably wouldn't make sense, right? Anyways, no need to have the claws for a tour.
  13. I can see that this is a mandala. An interesting play on words. It's reminding me now of a kaleidoscope. I hope it's ok for me to say that the 1st time I saw it as a small image, it reminded me of a pizza! : )
  14. Wow. I appreciate multi-colored drawings of yours and monochrome ones. But in this one, I especially appreciate that the 1 spot of color is the red mark on the back of the bird's head. Artistic. Beautiful lyric to accompany the drawing, too. : )

    A Memory

    Heartwrenching. Hmmm...will she ever reach him? Maybe if she gets a little more limber. But should she have to get acrobatic - or should he meet her halfway? Maybe if he opens his mind a bit to explore the edge of his thoughts at least a bit more - & opens his heart more & listens to his heart more.
  16. Wow. Beautiful. Why shouldn't someone commission you to paint that on the side of a building? (Maybe painting murals on sides of buildings is an art in itself.) There's certainly at least 1 Robert Frost poem that would be happy to accompany this drawing of yours! (Probably more than 1.)
