Blog Post #203
Ahh, it’s Saturday night and it’s quiet — we are enjoying a glass of wine, reading (of course) and listening to music. I am getting into a new book — Zoe Whittall’s, The Best Kind of People (No. 1 on Indigo’s Best Books of 2016)
I’m only 40 pages in but the writing is strong, the characters are interesting and the story is compelling.
The wine, Take it to the Grave — an Australian shiraz — is delightful. The music is rich, poetic and beautiful. In tribute to Leonard Cohen, we are listening to a selection of his music. We’re comfortable, relaxed, content.
Have a listen to a few of my favourite from tonight’s playlist.
Dance Me to the End of Love – Madeleine Peyroux
Thanks to Realm of the Lone Grey Squirrel for posting this YouTube video, I hadn’t heard Ms. Peyroux sing before — wow, love her voice! By the way, LGS, “Suzanne” and “Hallelujah” crop up here, because, well, they are two of my favourites!!
Suzanne — Leonard Cohen
Hallelujah — Leonard Cohen
Joan of Arc — Jennifer Warnes & Leonard Cohen
Famous Blue Raincoat — sung by Jennifer Warnes
Rest in peace, Mr. Cohen. Thank you. You will always be remembered.
