I’ve never done anything but dream. This, and this alone, has been the meaning of my life. My only real concern has been my inner life. FERNANDO PESSOA

Thanks for posting these. Started with this one and listened to all five songs. The first two Leonard Cohen albums kept my attention for a long long time. And "Bird on a Wire." After that he lost me until sometime in the 1990s when I heard Jeff Buckley sing "Hallelujah." And then the CD with the ten songs was astounding, all memorable. I particularly like "Love Itself":

The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of Love.
