Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

Sisters of Mercy

Sometimes you hear a song but you don't quite get it. Time passes and you do. That's how it is with me. Sometimes I don't get me, but sometimes I do. I figure as long as I stay true to what and who I am, I'll be okay. Lessons come and if I get them right I'm happy. If I get them wrong I ask for mercy to figure it all out. Never had a sister but I sure wouldn't turn one away.

What about you?

Have a listen to Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris sing Leonard Cohen's "Sisters of Mercy".

As always - thanks for stopping by.


  1. Yes, time passes and this often helps with understanding lots of things in life.

    Good to see you back blogging.

  2. Hi Mike - you're so right. I'm still learning. :)
    Good to be visited!!

  3. This is such a wonderful song that it's almost impossible to find a bad cover. Great ones include Dion, Nina Simone, Francois Hardy (in French) and Cohen himself!
    Continuing my new experiment of naming the music I am listening to while posting or commenting - right now it's: ‘Learning to Fly’ by Tom Petty, “I’m learning to fly but I ain’t got wings. Coming down is the hardest thing.” Listen on You Tube:

  4. Hi Bazza, will definitely have a listen to Petty. Cohen is one of my favorites, though I discovered him quite late in life.
    You listen to a variety of music - can't wait to see the resulting painting. Yes, I hope you'll display some of your own art!!!
    Thanks for visiting and leaving the music link!
