ashes of laughter, the ghost is clear
why do the best things always… disappear, like ophelia
please come back home.
i have been in love with your voice since i was a little kid. it will be with me ’til i die.

not only do i love his work; i adore and respect this idea. he said it regarding his philosophy on his photography, but it seems applicable to life in general.

now THAT is great hair. and decidedly manly.
why is it that so many dudes nowadays refuse to let their hair just be?

i almost died of pure joy on sunday at the JFK library. here’s why.
1. i was within 15 feet of leonard cohen, paul simon, chuck berry, elvis costello, al kooper.
2. i was about 5 feet away from keith richards. i waved at him as he was getting on the elevator. he looked straight at me and smiled. it was a life highlight.
3. bob dylan sent an email to congratulate chuck berry [on the PEN new england songwriting award] that said, “give my regards to leonard cohen, the kafka of the blues, and lord byron keith if he shows up.” the greatest. no one says it like bob.
4. leonard cohen made a short, wry speech. and paul simon talked for a bit.
5. keith and elvis played chuck berry’s “promised land” on stage.
still processing all of this. it felt surreal, especially since i didn’t even plan on going to the event until the last minute, but it was all the more awesome for its spontaneity. a lucky day if there ever was one.
