Closing Time

Kate McKinnon, as Hillary Clinton, singing 
Hallelujah on the opening of last night's
Saturday Night Live gave me all the feels,
and I've watched it over and over, tears 
each time. What a powerful performance -

Canadian poet, writer, singer, songwriter, guru of cool Leonard Cohen has passed away – and my heart is very, very sad. This week has been quite the pisser, eh? Goodness. So, in the spirit of celebrating this beautiful man’s life – and healing our souls – I give you some of his very best work.


There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.


Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.

I don’t consider myself a pessimist. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel soaked to the skin.

A woman watches her body uneasily, as though it were an unreliable ally in the battle for love.


Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you act.

May this beautiful soul rest in peace.
