Almost Like the Blues ~ Leonard Cohen
I was driftin’ around…not that four wheel kind but maybe in there somewhere — when I heard this one on my iPod — I began to breach a huge smile. Feck, yes, Cousin Leo, yes!!!! Now he speaks from the place that very few performers and certainly no “Rock” folks vantage point. 80 years on the Blue Marble and still his poetic soul shines — one of my ward mates in the medico farm said something about it not really being singing….told him to take some more Thorazine and call the doc in the morning! Yes, please I’ll have some of what Leonard is having! Ironically, I am closer in age to Mr. Cohen than I am to my younger sister. Peace, love and heavy sauce, y’all!
