I’ve shot tons of photos in the last 24 hours. This was last night. There are gorgeous buildings all over Columbus.
I’ll try to put together a Picasa slide show from the trip (in my spare time!) Last night, driving around in the rain, Leonard Cohen’s song “Never Any Good” came on and it was one of those moments. Rain pouring down, an incredible song! I turned it up full volume and was bouncing in the seat; stopped a few times to clap along. Embarrasing, huh?
What a rich voice; he gets down as low as you think he can, then goes lower. The band and the backup girls are exquisite, the poetry tough and tight and witty. Called my friend Sherm 2500 miles away and played the entire song for him at full blast driving on the brick streets of German Village, rain streaming on windshield. It was a movie in my brain.
