The Sage on Democracy

Woke up to scenes from some movies. No? They’re actual news headlines??

Remembered Leonard Cohen’s Democracy.

It’s coming to America first
The cradle of the best and of the worst
It’s here they got the range
And the machinery for change
And it’s here they got the spiritual thirst
It’s here the family’s broken
And it’s here the lonely say
That the heart has got to open
In a fundamental way
Democracy is coming to the USA


I’m your man [Music]

Ever since I discovered Leonard Cohen a few months ago (thanks Greg!), I’ve been delighted with Cohen’s impressive songwriting – here’s a teaser from a performance in London in 2009. I’m your man, croons this versatile artist! And if you like it, here’s another one – Take this Waltz – the duet, flute & the oudh are all outstanding! (lyrics at the bottom of the page on both videos)
