"Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin.

Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in.

Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove.

Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone.

Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon.

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of.

Dance me to the end of love."

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That's how the light gets in.

Week 44/52--Ballerina BAM

"It was deep into his fiery heart

He took the dust of Joan of Arc,

And then she clearly understood

If he was fire, oh then she must be wood.

I saw her wince, I saw her cry,

I saw the glory in her eye.

Myself I long for love and light,

But must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?"

Lascia suonare le campane ancora in grado di suonare,dimentica la tua immagine perfetta..c'è una crepa in ogni cosa..è da lì' che entra la luce..

Questa è una bellissima frase di Leonard Cohen, che dice di non nascondere le nostre crepe ma imparare a saperle amare !

Mah! proviamoci .....

Leonard Cohen - Suzanne

youtu.be/6o6zMPLcXZ8

 

"Suzanne" was inspired by Cohen's platonic relationship with Suzanne Verdal, the then girlfriend of sculptor Armand Vaillancourt. Its lyrics describe the rituals that they enjoyed when they met: Suzanne would invite Cohen to visit her apartment by the harbour in Montreal, where she would serve him Constant Comment tea, and they would walk around Old Montreal past the church of Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours, where sailors were blessed before heading out to sea.

It is in Love that we are made

It is in Love that we disappear...

 

I tidied up the kitchenette

I caught the darkness

Drinking from your cup

I said, "Is this contagious?"

You said, "Just drink it up."

[ Leonard Cohen - The Darkness ]

 

that's how the light gets in.

 

(Leonard Cohen's words, for Gil)

Listen ... ♫♫♫

Now I've heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you don't really care for music, do you?

It goes like this

The fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing Hallelujah

 

~ Leonard Cohen

Another iconic cliché moment and one done many times by me and a gazillion others!! But including a sunrise with 'birds on a wire' is certainly a penultimate cliché, right?!! Pulled this one from my archives and been working on it off & on for awhile (like since April 2010). I have a vast horde of images languishing on my hard drive that could easily fill out a year or two of Cliché Saturdays! Doesn't everyone?

 

♫ Leonard Cohen – Bird on the Wire ♫ Click if you want to chill!

 

♫ My Passion – Seven Birds ♫ Click if you want to rock!

 

Happy Cliché Saturday Everyone!!

The light came through the window,

Straight from the sun above,

And so inside my little room

There plunged the rays of Love.

 

In streams of light I clearly saw

The dust you seldom see,

Out of which the Nameless makes

A Name for one like me.

 

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then Love Itself

Love Itself was gone.

 

All busy in the sunlight

The flecks did float and dance,

And I was tumbled up with them

In formless circumstance.

 

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then Love Itself

Love Itself was gone.

 

Then I came back from where I’d been.

My room, it looked the same –

But there was nothing left between

The Nameless and the Name.

 

All busy in the sunlight

The flecks did float and dance,

And I was tumbled up with them

In formless circumstance.

 

I’ll try to say a little more:

Love went on and on

Until it reached an open door –

Then Love itself,

Love Itself was gone.

I took three shots that day and the second one that I posted ("By the end of the Day") was similar and my favorite. But this one was sitting on my computer and I did like the mood but never posted cause I don't like to repeat myself... Then I also wanted to share with you one of my favourite singer and his song and it hit me that this photo would fit just right... (I hope).

Thank you for being here for me. Always.

Baby, Ive been waiting

Ive been waiting night and day

I didnt see the time

I waited half my life away

There were many invitations

And I know you sent me some

But I was waiting

For the miracle to come

 

I know you really loved me

But, you see, my hands were tied

I know it must have hurt you

It must have hurt your pride

To stand beneath my window

With your bugle and your drum

While I was waiting

For the miracle to come

...

A Thousand Kisses Deep

'8 Minutes 11 seconds' On Black

 

5:01 BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...BAM (as the snooze button is slammed down)

 

5:06 Arghhh...alright, I'll get my lazy arse up. But there better be some stars damnit, past two mornings I've woken up at 5am, rushed out in the cold and dark, and been hosed by overcast and cloudy conditions. Bill...Bill...stop snoring and wake your ass up, let's go.

 

5:10 Nothing like a can of cold espresso and cream when it's 40 degrees outside! How did photographers survive before canned coffee? Just part of the Starbucks plan to rule the world I'm sure.

 

5:15 Ok, batteries charged. Check. Memory cards cleaned. Check. Lenses cleaned. Check. 24-105 on the 5d, yep, 70-200 on the 10d...yep. Oh wait, I'm supposed to say check. Cooler is in the car, camera bags, tripod. Should I put on the long johns? No, it should warm up. Real boots instead of those fakes ones. Yup. Great...should have packed another pair of socks...ewwww...these are ripe. Bill, you ready? Great. Let's hit the road.

 

5:20 On the road again! Hey, look at that Bill, stars! Never been so damn excited to see stars in my life. (A weekends photo trip washed out by overcast conditions will do that to you).

 

5:25 Uh oh...are those clouds rolling in. Quick, put on Hallelujah....we need divine intervention. No, I don't care if that makes me a nut job, it got us an hour of sun yesterday...put it on!

 

5:27 Hallelujah...does it say she broke your throat and cut your hair? I don't think so, but maybe this isn't the divine intervention we need after all. (note...it's throne not throat!)

 

5:45 Ok, this looks as good a place as any to park, probably should have scouted better last night. Tough to pick out where you are going to trudge a mile through the sand when it's a moonless night and the sun isn't up.

 

5:50 Flashlight. Check. Camera bag. Check. Tripod. Check. Water...grab plenty of water, don't want to go the way of Sue and John. Damn...it's cold, should have put on those long johns. And a second shirt. Too late now, let's go.

 

5:55 Bill...turn off that headlamp, you look like a dork! How are my eyes supposed to adjust to the low light anyways.

 

5:58 Cool...are those snake tracks? That beanie cap and gloves were a good call.

 

6:01 You know how you can tell someone has never lived at the beach? They think it's cool to walk on the beach. Walking in sand sucks.

 

6:10 Probably should have thought about hitting the restroom before heading out here.

 

6:14 I wonder how I'd look with a beard...do the femmes go for the grizzly adams look nowadays?

 

6:20 Well, we aren't going to make it to those big dunes, geez, they just keep getting farther away the more we walk. Time to make a stand.

 

6:25 Alright, this looks like the spot. Come on clouds...don't...let the sun come out....pleeeeeeease. Stay away...stop drifting towards the sun.

 

6:30 (watching the clouds move ever closer to where the sun is going to rise)

 

6:35 Tripod setup, scan the dunes...really could have used those long johns right about now. And really, you should think about getting better gloves, tough to do anything wearing ski gloves when working a camera.

 

6:37 Various shots of the pre sunrise dunes while warily watching the clouds drift closer and closer to where the sun is going to come up.

 

6:39 Oh look, wind is kicking up a little. (watches a "wave" of sand blow in the wind). You can really see how the dunes are reformed every night. Ahhh...(spits sand out of mouth and wipes off face). Yeah, that wasn't all that smart.

 

6:45 Ok, 7 minutes until go time...stay away clouds. This was the single number one reason for coming out to Death Valley...sand dune shots at sunrise! Of course, maybe we shouldn't have waited until the end of the trip, but hey...this sand is going to put some serious bad mojo on these cameras, Canon Factory service center...here I come.

 

6:48 Sunriiiise..sunset...geez, nice ear worm. That one backfired, but it will all be worth it if it's stuck in Bill's head for the rest of the week.

 

6:52 Ok, so I should have looked at the exact time the sun was going to rise. But this works, some great soft light on the dunes.

 

6:59 We have sun on the mountains!

 

7:02 Closer...closer...light bathing the valley floor...stay away clouds. Don't shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!

 

7:07:20 Fire...fire...snap snap snap...sun! Stay away clouds.

 

Snap...snap...over there...oh...look at that. Move up the dune a little...Crap...(foot slides down the face of the dune in the soft sand)...can you really pull your groin taking pictures?

 

Snap...snap...slow down sparky. Look...compose. Where's the ND, oops, no time for that. Bracket and worry about the details later. Stay away clouds...noooooooooooo.

 

7:15:31...snap...fade to shadow...sigh...and there it goes.

 

8 minutes 11 seconds, sometimes that's all you get.
