A Valentine from Ninjanurse–
Get me a cool cloth for my forehead, and clutch my pearls for me while you’re at it. I saw on the nets that K.D.Lang sang Leonard Cohen’s song ‘Hallelulia’ at the Olympics opening ceremony. I wonder if any Canadian snow survived unmelted.
I heard an interview with Leonard Cohen by Terry Gross on NPR some time ago. He went to a Zen monastery so he could do nothing for a while. Brave man. Nothing is the hardest thing to do. I heard a little bit of ‘Hallelulia’ then.
Pam’s House Blend posted K.D.Lang’s performance at a recent concert. I love K.D.Lang. I heard ‘Constant Craving’ about ten years ago at a women’s martial arts conference performed with kata, so I think I’ve got the drift.
But I’m basically visual, and I really take it in when I read it. I looked up the lyrics.
Damn, that man can write.
Here’s YouTube with the Great Man himself and some big-haired blond women giving it some Holiness.
And K.D. Lang with Constant Craving. She sings Hallelulia wonderfully, but I like this better.
