Greyness lingers all around this small part of a world that seems quite alien today.

I’m watching the ebb and flow of the tiny water droplets seemingly suspended in the air while listening to Leonard Cohen. Does the world still exist beyond the ever closing bleak murk. Feeling a little too detached this morning. Maybe a little too ground down today. The waves of grief and loss seeming a little stronger over the last few hours. Worries for my son feeling just a bit more oppressive. Have I still got the energy to do this.

But it is what it is. Life must go on.

I really must stop listening to Cohen on a Bleak Sunday morning. Or maybe I really should.

“There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in”

From Anthem by L Cohen

Greyness lingers all around this small part of a world that can still be wonderful. The mist will clear. When it does it will reveal blue skies, blue skies which are always there.

Time to start living.

  1. I was thinking the same thing “Maybe Cohen isn’t the best choice” πŸ™‚ Here’s hoping some blue skies find their way to you today (and some happier music πŸ™‚ ).

  2. I’m feeling similar this morning my friend. Some mornings it feels like it’s going to be uphill and the strength just isn’t there. Light will appear though. I have to hold on to that! X

  3. Phew… Cohen ain’t exactly a party starter. Unless it’s a pity party. But he’s damn good!

    Sorry you couldn’t be here for the collective sigh of relief yesterday (and literal dancing in the streets). It was shocking to have something other than the rants of a lunatic for a day!!

  4. Many of us here in ghd US are having a sigh of relief now that Biden is in
    People have said to me that they feel generally better, which is good news and even though you are across the pond, I’m sending the good your way. Try the Googoo Dolls silliness instead of Cohen? I πŸ˜‰πŸ€—

  5. Well, maybe this morning it was the right time for Leonard Cohen, another time it could be for Ylvis – Mr. Toot 🎺 or Annie Lennox – Little Bird 🦜 or System Of A Down – Toxicity ☠️ or Deee-Lite – Groove Is In The Heart ❀️ or Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song or Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy πŸ€ͺ or Midnight Oil – Beds Are Burning or The Clash – Rock the Casbah or Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Murder On The Dancefloor 🩰 damn it there’s perhaps even a time for Dana – All kinds of everything, for then tomorrow it could likely be time for The Bangles – Manic Monday! πŸ˜€

  6. Yes, it is time to keep on going, keep on living. You are right, there are blue skies beyond the bleakness. Hang in there Gary, as the line from the movie, The Crow, says, “It can’t rain all the time”.

    Sending hugs and all good thoughts, vibes, prayers, from Canada. God bless.


  7. So many times, lately, I’ve seen that quote. Leonard Cohen probably not good when you’re feeling down, brilliant though he may have been. On the other hand, when I am down I can’t stand to hear jolly, jolly music. In my case I just have to go with the feeling and ride it out. Easier to do when you are alone. Having a young lad to keep going must make it extra hard. I am so sorry, Gary. Wish I could help. XXXX

  8. When the mud of life dries up, the coat gets cracks. A sign, that it is time to break the shell… and yes, it needs those cracks to reveal the light in order to remind us of what has been lying beneath the coat.

  9. It may have not been the best choice of music but I do that to myself . When I am feeling a bit down and everything looks bleak I tend to listen to the saddest most darkest music. I am thinking of you. And yes you can do this . One thing that I do know of you is that you’re such a strong man. No giving up.hugsβ€οΈπŸ˜”

  10. Okay EMO Boy! Enough Cohen… sometimes we gotta wallow a bit, have a good cry and a pity party, then, just like clouds clearing and blue sky showing through, we dust ourselves off, dry our eyes and dance!! Get some Village People blasting and you and Hawklad do the YMCA dance!!πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Sending hugs!πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
