Wow!

Don’t ask any questions. Just trust me. Go to this site:

That’s How The Light Gets In

{Books, exhibitions, films, music, places – anything that inspires. Here so I don’t forget.}

You will not believe the offerings in here.

You’re very welcome!

Cheers,

Bex-The-Finder-Of-Fabulosity!

P.S. What caught my eye was the phrase “That’s How the Light Gets In” – in the first place – you know I’m a Leonard Cohen fan/nut – his song “Anthem” ends with this chorus:

“Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack, a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in.

That’s how the light gets in.

That’s how the light gets in.”

    Thanks Eric, I will go look. I saw his link there – isn’t he the same one who has been performing with Garrison Keilor on The Prairie Home Companion radio show for years? I think that’s him. (or maybe not, I’m not sure now that I’ve read the article… I need to look further into this man… Thanks Eric!)

    Wasn’t this site fabulous? I mean… it’s insane!

    If you haven’t read it I recommend you read the piece on the Richard Thompson concert and give Wall of Death a listen. I love his stuff. I actually saw him at a small club in Rochester circa 1990. No accompaniment. Just him sitting on a stool with an acoustic guitar. I couldn’t believe a single person could make such complicated sounds all by himself. He sounded like a whole band.

    (Big smile!) Like I said, you are very welcome! I am still reeling from the greatness of this site. And it took me so long to get to the end I never got to read any of the comments. I love comments, and sometimes I think the comments are better than the articles! But what a variety of things to read up on. And each article linked with it’s beautiful photo is probably similar to the one I did read about Helen Forrester, about the length of a newspaper article… so it’s possible to sit down and read several of these gems in a 30 minute period and then move on to something else…

    but my goodness! What a wealth of interesting subjects this person has. I was putting this all in here when Paul walked in from lobstering and the dogs needed feeding and all hell was breaking loose while I was trying to compose this entry… so tomorrow, when all is quiet around here, I’m going back in… I may never surface again!

  6. OK Bex, I thought sure, fabulous, sure. Silly me, the site is FABULOUS! Right away my mind compared it to Facebook offerings, those pictures with quotes which are about as philosophical as people get on Facebook. I had never thought of using WordPress the way this site owner does, it is an “aha” moment for me. Wayyyyy better than Facebook, and not owned by a corporation. Well, the only thing to add is thanks for the link Bex!
