Secrets silence

Mihran Kalaydjian Beethoven’s 5 Secrets silence

“Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine.”

“Ludwig van Beethoven”

Waiting For The Miracle To Come

Paintings – Carri Graber
Lyrics by Leonard Cohen


Baby, I’ve been waiting,
I’ve been waiting night and day.
I didn’t see the time,
I waited half my life away.
There were lots of invitations
and I know you sent me some,
but I was waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.
I know you really loved me.
but, you see, my hands were tied.
I know it must have hurt you,
it must have hurt your pride
to have to stand beneath my window
with your bugle and your drum,
and me I’m up there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Ah I don’t believe you’d like it,
You wouldn’t like it here.
There ain’t no entertainment
and the judgments are severe.
The Maestro says it’s Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
when you’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Waiting for the miracle
There’s nothing left to do.
I haven’t been this happy
since the end of World War II.

Nothing left to do
when you know that you’ve been taken.
Nothing left to do
when you’re begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
when you’ve got to go on waiting
waiting for the miracle to come.

I dreamed about you, baby.
It was just the other night.
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light.
The sands of time were falling
from your fingers and your thumb,
and you were waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah baby, let’s get married,
we’ve been alone too long.
Let’s be alone together.
Let’s see if we’re that strong.
Yeah let’s do something crazy,
something absolutely wrong
while we’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Nothing left to do …

When you’ve fallen on the highway
and you’re lying in the rain,
and they ask you how you’re doing
of course you’ll say you can’t complain —
If you’re squeezed for information,
that’s when you’ve got to play it dumb:
You just say you’re out there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Solidarity Support Challenge day 50

Solidarity Support Challenge


Hello friends! The moment of joy has come. We begin Round 4 of Solidarity Support Challenge.

Thanks to you all, sweet members of Bloggers’ Solidarity Support Forum, we have been able to come this far. We are growing big in numbers.

We are moving fully to two blogs and bloggers of the day to make it more exciting and to go faster. Two blogs are definitely not too many.

Following are our first two blogs and bloggers of the day.
1. Mihran Kalaydjian is an amazing blogger. He was among the very first to embrace the forum. But somehow along the line his name slipped off from our list. You will be happy meeting him if you haven’t already. We’ve apologized to him and are happy to have him co-top the list of this round with wivesrepublic.

Visit Mihran Kalaydjian and leave him some…

Day Two: The Seven Day Nature Challenge

A Day In The Life

Marilyn over at Serendipity, a wonderful photographer and blogger whom I have learned so much from, has invited me to participate in The Seven Day Nature Photo Challenge. To take part in the challenge I’m supposed to post one photo (or more)per day for seven days. The subject can be anything from the natural world. I can nominate someone each day to participate, and today I am happy to invite Lois a wonderful friend who writes a blog called on pets and prisonersto join in the challenge. 

I love taking walks in nature preserves in my area in New Jersey, and Autumn is a wonderful time to do so and take in the changing foliage. This past year the leaves changed very late, not displaying their usual array of beautiful colors. On a very warm day in early November I did find them changing as I walked along…
