each fallen robin September 23rd, 2008

Two days ago was Leonard Cohen’s birthday. He started his musical career at age 33. And two days ago I turned 33!
Here’s something I jotted in my sketchbook that morning – from Javier Marías.

    Hi Craig

    I’m keen to invite you to contribute to an anthology I’m putting together (which will be published by Serpent’s Tail in the UK and Harper Collins in the US), featuring a mixture of prose and graphic short stories…

    If you’d like more info, fire me an email…

    Best wishes

    Happy Birthday, Craig!
    Mine just passed on Sunday. Happy September B-Days. 😉 And here’s my favorite Leonard Cohen lyrics:

    “The birds they sang
    at the break of day
    Start again
    I heard them say
    Don’t dwell on what
    has passed away
    or what is yet to be.
    Ah the wars they will
    be fought again
    The holy dove
    She will be caught again
    bought and sold
    and bought again
    the dove is never free.

    Ring the bells that still can ring
    Forget your perfect offering
    There is a crack in everything
    That’s how the light gets in.”

    Between you and Danny Seim’s music I swear there is some kind conspiracy to bring on seasonal depression early this year! Yha I just turned 30 Craig and I think I might have a few good years left before ascending into “creepy old guy” at shows… I might already be there! sigh… I kid cause’ I love.
