Dance Me to the End of Love

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!!

Rest in peace, Mr. Cohen. Thank you. You will always be remembered.
