A Morning Message On Waking Up
"All right yesterday I was full of. Spitting Vinegar for sure. So if you haven't listened to yesterday's episode just brace yourself. Brace yourself because I had this. Kind of Ha as I was walking down the stairs down to my gym, my apartment building. And I want to explain a little bit more about moments like that, and that's the beauty of these warning messages. My friend is this is uncensored. I don't want to Polish these morning messages a want you to feel the intensity or the sadness or the true emotion. As. It is emerging for me. Because if it's doing it for me, it's doing it for you in some way, and this is the whole idea. Of Waking, up. What does it mean to wake up? You may have heard this expression. That you know you meditate to become enlightened. Well, it doesn't mean that you're GONNA sit or go up to cave and spend the rest of your life glancing at your navel so to speak. Waking up means seeing reality. As it is without filter. and. It may just happen for a second here or there. And you may see the truth. And know the truth. And you know what scratch that there is no, may it is happening? All the time. George Leonard Said No, it was Leonard Cohen said. Something about it's the crack in the wall, it's how the light gets in. There are these moments that are happening all day long we're we are waking up to the truth where we have the hunch where we have the impulse where we know what's right and what's wrong. Where we know what we need and what we don't need. And when we are able to recognize. That moment. And Trust. that. This is true. That's how we begin to really change our lives. It's how we begin to walk. In our own way. To. Think. It's like march to our own beat I totally mix up mess metaphors all the time. My husband loves to make fun of me because I'm always mixing metaphor. So bear with me in my imperfection. But seriously. Yesterday as I was walking down the stairs I had this. piff any that I was allowing the news feed. To enter my psyche. Without permission. And so that's why I just turned on my voice recorder and and spewed out to you because I want you to know what it feels like to have that kind of moment of awakening. It's happening all day long. But here's what usually happens. One, we are so caught in our busy business and doing this. That, we don't. Allow. Ourselves. To. Experience. To, even just stop like I stopped on the landing of that stairwell. To make a change because it was that powerful. And it's happening for you. These hunches? These these knocks on the door. These whispers in your ear. All Day Long. Can you recognize it's happening. And Trust Yourself. Your. Gut Your. Inspiration your intuition. This is how we start to become self authoring individuals. Making our own choice. Listening to our own voice moving from that place seeing reality as it is. Now. It doesn't happen overnight. There's very, very few people who have had awakenings and the are permanent awakenings forever. For most of us, it's these little glimpses. These moments. Of Light. Right the cracks in the wall with a light gets in. It's like Oh my God look at that. That's it. And if there's anything or any reason why I do what I do Not because I'm enlightened 'cause I am far from it. But I trust these moments I trust him because I've allowed them in. And have allowed myself to investigate them. And all I am doing right here is, is that whisper in your ear to trust yourself?

Glimpsing Aliveness With Cara Bradley
"It. Could warning from my? Hike. On Valley, Forge Mountain actually mount misery I am on Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park. I've been wanting to do this just to grab my voice recorder and come and do something spontaneous with you for a while. So thank you for joining in with these morning messages. They are have been for me just an UN leaching of creativity spontaneity Tearing US I said yesterday and a lot of God a lot of like, ouch. Do I really want to put that out there who listen? Maybe you can hear the water as a Britt. Creek here. So what came to me today was to chat with you a little bit about aliveness. And about glimpsing aliveness. All of the things that I talk about a really coming at awakening. Awaking- awakening out of your busy thinking mind so that you can directly experience the brilliance of your life. And we take different turns. We look at this this gem from different angles, and so that's why why it may seem sometimes like I am jumping around. But really what we're doing is we're just changing perspective because there's no one path. There are infinite number of paths to waking up out of the the dream state of your mind. So. Being in nature for me. Is One of those paths that I take daily that I have to take daily because it it plugs me into. My sense of aliveness like nothing else I mean there's other things. But A, but nature's just so predictable. So glimpsing aliveness is simply. Allowing yourself to be with what is. To be with the gravel beneath your feet in the green around you in the sunlight peeking through the forest and the smell of summer the sounds of birds without having to. Label anything without having to. Analyze anything but you just start to melt or Mesh with the moment as it's unfolding. This is the process of awakening. And we've all had these moments. Every, single one of us if you've never sat down to meditate, it doesn't matter. You've had this experience. And I just want to encourage you to develop this capacity. To glimpse your own aliveness. To pause moment to moment so that you can. Hang out in the experience as it arises as it emerges. and. So it may be through music cooking may be through yoga. May Be on your run Maybe be in your car by yourself who knows. It can happen an infinite number of ways. When we start to pay attention to the glimpses of aliveness I talk about this I write about this a lot my book, and it's really informed my life just just recognizing glimpses. Moment to moment sometimes, we get caught in the thick of our mind. oftentimes we caught. In the thick of our mind to the news feed and what the world is kind of. Barrage us with. But then there are those cracks in the wall right Leonard Cohen says, that's where the light shines through there are those moments between moments. There are those precious. the the smell of coffee, the the site of Sun hitting the top of the trees you know the catching of somebody's is holding it there. The these are glimpses beyond the veil. Beyond. The veil of the thinking busy judging doubting fearing mind. And so I offer you a piece of my walk here as I. Look around. Bucks playing around. I hear the birds water and. You know it's just to be with that's it. Nothing. Special nothing profound. This is our birthright. It's our birthright. To recognize our own aliveness in the life force that moves through us. So. How do you glimpse aliveness? and. Once you start noticing you're gonNA start noticing more. And once you start noticing it more. then. The these moments. Start to if you're lucky start to lengthen. And the duration of these glimpses. Start. To. Become longer. And it's then in these glimpses in in a longer glimpse that you start to really hear. Your Voice. Your source, your source intelligence come through.

Music streaming may actually be falling because of Coronavirus
"All right. Let's talk a little bit about listening to music. You'd think maybe with a lot more people staying home more people would be listening to music and you'd be wrong courts notes that Italy's spotify users averaged eighteen point three million total streams of the top one hundred songs per day in February two thousand nineteen but since a national quarantine was announced march nineth total streams of the top. One hundred songs have not top fourteen. Point four million. That's just under four million less. There was a twenty three percent drop between March third and March seventeenth in the United States. Total spotify streams of the top. Two hundreds fell to seventy seven million on March seventeenth the lowest total so far this year. Uk France and Spain have also seen drops. Now maybe that when you're shut inside you just go for less popular songs flattening the curve if you will But it it does seem like maybe people. Just don't listen to as much music right now. Because they're not no situation. Yeah it's it's the commuting has dropped you know people are maybe going on. Few were outdoor exercise. Long form stuff where you listen to music. Definitely the case with me. I don't not any good reason but I don't listen to a lot of streaming music at home but I do when I'm out and about so my own use has gone down quite a bit. I'm just waiting for the surge. Unlike Leonard Cohen playlists. Or you know semi depressed. Folksy songwriters. You forgot how much you liked until you were really depressed about. Not being able to leave. Your House. Nbc surgeon playlists. Nobody's ever heard of. We've seen an extreme spike in. Everybody knows Yeah I do think this is an interesting thing because you would think like. Oh more people with more time. Maybe means more music but they're doing other things they're watching videos playing video games and the music is like you say Sarah for for going outside and hanging out with fewer people are doing or in your car when you're driving to work which you're people are doing that so yeah.
Basic Folk: Dave Godowsky
"You are from Maine. Yes whereabouts are you from in. What is your hometown like? I'm from the town of Yarmouth Maine about seven thousand people. It's a great little suburban town. It's right outside of Portland which is a great small city great place to the classic kind of place that like when you're sixteen years old seventeen years old. You're like get me out of here. This is so boring. This sucks and then it doesn't take that long to be like. Oh you know what it's pretty cool like is a pretty place It spread on the coast. Means just a cool place you know. I think there's other small suburban towns in America that actually are probably the Really Boring this isn't one of them. It's actually a cold place. Let's the accent like the accent I can't there really isn't much of one. You have to get up into Maine to get into accent territory. I can't really I can't really do. I didn't really grow up with it. Disappointing Yeah Inter. Southern southern is It's really no different than vermonter. New Hampshire Rhode Island or Massachusetts. Although I guess sometimes there is A. It doesn't really have the Boston accent. I find the main accent. Would I know of it to be very similar to the western Massachusetts accent? Where there's like you can't get the From the The air it's like a dip down and then backup Yup Yup Yup. There's that thing which might be some form of Mandarin actually interesting moving on one thing that you aren't intentionally taught or a lot of people aren't intentionally taught to do is to listen to music You are basically a professional music fan. You've managed musicians. Signed musicians. Worked very talented songwriters throughout your career. What was it like for you to start discovering music at a young age? That's really interesting. I've never thought of it that that's a good. I'm going to steal that from now on you May Young Age. You mean like really young like when I was a kid merger you mean like when I first got into professional. Yeah I have another question about like about like your identity when it came to listening and discovering and then when you started to develop a fine taste but for this question I just wanted to know like when you first started listening to music. What was it like? Was there like an immediate connection or were you just like whatever this music and were in Louis stuff. Oh Yeah because a kid. There was definitely a huge connection. It's like the only thing I was really passionate about. Since I was like a little kid you know like eight seven or eight or something like I mean I remember just being so obsessed with records My parents had crates of old records from the sixties. Everything from the beach. Boys to Neil Young Bob Dylan to like the monkey is and you know. Funny stuff like that And I just remember like sitting there listening to records in studying the packaging and you know that was a time where the act the Physical Act of listening to music was as compelling as the music itself you know like you could get lost in the process of putting the needle on a record and listening to it and and reading who these people were and you didn't know it was just this big mystery. All you knew was what you were hearing. And whatever text and photos were in the sleeve so it was just this you know at this mysterious element to it that I became obsessed with it was like almost sounds like an adventure. Yeah exactly it was an adventurous. It was like it was exploring the unknown. Every time you found some new record And then you also wouldn't know anything about it or you wouldn't have any sense if anyone else knew anything about it like I remember talking to people at school and being like you ever heard of this artist or that artist and it was equal chances that someone would say like Yeah I've heard of Leonard Cohen. He's a big deal. Everyone knows him. And I'm like Oh okay or like does everyone know about this other person you know like I have no. You have no sense of things. It isn't like today when you just. You can see how many like instagram followers they have. Or whatever and you know within like a few clicks or whatever you can tell like more than you would ever possibly a million years want or need to know about any any. Wasn't that so hilarious when you discover so on you're like what a great discovery and you instagram. And they have like a million yes. Yeah Yeah that used to not happen. I know it's fun when it happens the other way. You assume someone say huge. He looked them up. And you're like what was this person not like for me. Sometimes when I do look at someone's numbers there is like either that like extreme. You know on the scale of extremes either. There's like a million followers. There's like one hundred in when I find that somebody has like a hundred instagram followers. I feel this like great despair. It's like Oh this is terrible right. What can I do probably nothing? Probably nothing unless you have millions of dollars yet. The correlation between quality and exposure is non-existent. Really which can be fun sometimes for fans not so fun for the artist but it kind of seems like for you. It's been a career long struggle of choosing performance over business. Yeah more so at different points. But Yeah Yeah. Why do you think that exists? I think a lot of it has to do with It's not even so much of -gistically thing as it is a perception thing like I'm not allowed to be feeling like I'm not allowed to be a musician if I'm working in music and that was something. I learned early on that. Really kind of bummed me out because I it never occurred to me before I was just like. I have car payments and student loan debt and bills and rent and all these things like you know I. I need to get a job. I can't just be a musician like you know. I need to get a fulltime job immediately. So thinking what did I just find job and music like it's the one thing I wanna do and I didn't even know what the music industry was. It was like there must be jobs in music right there. I know that there's some I don't know what it is but there's some music industry So I found a job at this record. Label mistake sure. Yeah we'll just do anything and the next thing I knew it was like I was playing gigs and there was immediately like this sense of like. Oh wait so you work at record label. Oh so but I don't get it like which one which one are you are you? One of us are one of them. It was like being a cop at a party or something you know like are you the are you a label guy or are you. One of the band was that it was seen in a negative way it may have inadvertently negative. I don't think there was much like. Oh we don't care about this guy. He's in with the label or something at least not overtly but it was definitely there like under like in between the lines. Kind of you know like it was I think for some reason. A lot of people have a hard time imagining that one person could be both.

Like two hundred people have recorded Hallelujah and but it didn't become well known until Jeff Buckley recorded at like maybe ten years or more after your father recorded it which is just so strange but It's a sign of. I think there was a period of years when your father's genius wasn't fully acknowledged when he had the initial period of hits and then I think people oh just a lot of people just kind of drifted away and then rediscovered him and What was it like for you and for him during that period one? When I think think you'd been a little bit forgotten? Yeah I feel like my father. Probably felt like his whole life. Life was characterized by that by that description that he did he'd been forgotten forgotten by the angels forgotten by the accused Forgotten by I know that he was not satisfied. he was a seeker he wasn't satisfied with either the position that he had for the most part In society he wasn't happy with the site site itself that would be deepened. The conflict. He wasn't He wasn't satisfied with the people aid. Chosen to be around him. He wasn't satisfied with his role as father. He wasn't satisfied with his role as a lover And through this layer upon layer ear of dissatisfaction he somehow mustered an incredible buoyancy and ability to be One of the most delightful lightfoot people anyone ever came across and it wasn't with any sense of bitterness or judgment I think he just felt like he had this.

I can't remember what it was. It was kind of like being in a church or synagogue. There was this sense of like the devotion of his fans to him and his his devotion to the music and two things larger and he ended it with what struck me as a benediction. And I forget exactly what he said. But you know to those of you who are going home to your families. Enjoy your families and to those of you who live alone.

Some of your father's most famous songs were already written and recorded by the time you were born Suzanne so long Marianne nowhere to say goodbye. Burn a wire Chelsea hotel who by fire So did you hear them. You didn't need me so did you hear them a lot when you were growing up. I mean it's like when I was growing up I thought about songs and singers. But he didn't think about song writers. You know I just thought about like what's the song and who's singing it But but you're you. Your father was a song writers. He must have had an awareness that songwriting was a craft. That something people actually he did. And you must like grown up with these songs. I don't know if he played them around the house. I don't know if you've even heard them when you were you know. Of course I heard them. Yeah a AH five year old On the side of stages watching them being performed in of course gone into the looking at the faces of of audiences You know in in in different times and places and I was a deep deep admirer of the melodies of at first you know as a child just the melodies the generosity of the melodies and then as I grew older there was the complexities and the beautiful marshalling of language and Then you grow older and then you you sort of see I remember I remember I myself was making a record at the time and had scrapped it and I asked my father for counsel as a Dad. You know meet me me me I really got to talk to you. I got to pick your brain and we were sitting on the corner of Wilshire. Sure in La Brea and I confessed to him that I was GONNA scrap this entire record and was expecting him to put his hand on my shoulder. And say like. That's it's my boy. You know altruistic values don't ever stop continue refining but instead he turned to me and said he scrapped your record. That's an amateur move. OOF said amateur move he says yeah. It's not about how you feel about the records. How the songs make them feel? And at that moment I realized that the LOVATO's head for his material wasn't just about their construction but it was also about their intentionally he was holding up this baton that he had been given by the love he had for the people who came before him and he was holding it up and and something about the Canon of his work that has always maintained that that baton baton off the ground. How old were you and your parents? Separated five six. I'm not the door member. So how much did you get to see your father after that. I'm in a relationship. Now and the imperfection of a union between lean to people has been demonstrated to me in vivid colors and dimensions. And the fact that my father was able to stay in his children's life despite those complications and then some was remarkable is remarkable to me I my mother other moved my sister and I have to across the world many occasions not just to get away from him in fact not to get away from him at all which is to follow her own whims uh-huh and My father would often even park a caravan At the end of a dirt road just to be near US Him He's always been part of our lives it always. He always maintained a role in our lives despite my parents separation so a caravan is like a mobile home. Oh yeah the liquidity call the jet stream kind of thing Ah Yeah I remember. My mother moved my sister now. All the way to the south of France where we lived And there's a long dirt road and he bought when he sort of caravan jetstream some type things and he put it the tea where the road met.

You know his work. He did before he died. Collected in this new book. You Know I. I'm just so struck by airing my father's voice which I seem to be listening to almost more than I ever did even when he was alive. I I love his poetry. I love his words. I love the way he marshals language. I am I'm wary of discussing my father. I always have been Especially when you have a person who had such an inimitable wave and command of language. So I'm hesitant and I didn't even know whether I should i. I'm not certain I should be here speaking about him. But it's a stirring subject and I have been enlisted. I'm enlisted in the in the campaign to let everybody know how wonderful I think he was but I feel like such a shabby impostor Mr trying to Be about it for him. You know the ambassador of this particular book which I had very little to do with frankly other than offering title for it or you wrote a very eloquent introduction which will be quoting as time goes on here thank you so I think you said he left behind like lockers worth of notebooks books. What are you doing with them I mean scrappy like he was always riding? There's always like cocktail napkins and pages and in his pocket that you found a notebook in the freezer ones on so So what are you doing with the findings. Well it's amazing. There's so much paperwork to go through a from from the simplest point of view. There's the the archival work which is assembling everything trying to pay homage to it for posterity. Then there's a the completion of works of his in this instance it's the flame this book And then there were also some songs which I was tasked with finishing shing. You know you may know I Produced his last record the called you on it darker and while working with him many many poems were read sometimes to Amir kick drum just for meter for tempo and so there's this sense of responsibility to keep the songs salivas. He always used to say. I want to play the title song on the final album that was released when your Father Leonard Cohn was still alive. It's called you on a darker and and then we'll talk about working with him on it and this is it's what can I say it's a great Song.

He did get to you know when he played for you came over to the house when he played it for people whose opinion he was seeking or or with with whom he just wanted to share the music and then eventually the world That that a collect you know. This is where it's he was such an unsentimental guy that I almost feel like. I'm trespassing but for me. It was sentimental to be summoned to work with my father other in whose footsteps I tried with clumsiness to follow to To Go from basically glorified coffee boy. You know in the in the basement of the building tending up in in the penthouse making boardroom. Decisions with the boss Except set the boss was in a medical chair you know in his living room ended Wilshire. tit tau actually actually having this resonant music to to wrestling with the master and and not getting creamed and in fact you know when another thing that when you came up in conversation you know and pardon me for the oversimplifying but when when he would say rick or or Don Wasser Delana. They want they want me to go back. They want me to. They want me to literally regress to making you know an old Leonard Cohen album with just nylon string guitars and stuff. Like I don't WanNa do that. You know like I'm not a museum am piece. I'm not even particularly nostalgic But of course I believe you were right. and and the that desire tire for Leonard Cohen to tickle that and evoke that sense that we have in our minds eye of what Leonard Cohen is. Not just list not just spiritually not just lyrically but also sonically into the architecture that accompanies him. was such a strong desire tire and when he finally was weak enough to relent and allow that just for a second second especially with this his son To have that nylon string guitar come back to to quiet. The background vocals and excavate enough space for him in the verses so that the narrator ship was unchallenged lodged And they could go back to that other union that he had created which Yin and Yang where he has his masculine ESCULENTA baritone narrator narrator ship and then there's this incredible generous complicitous from the female backgrounds. So this this union. This is an architecture that he he helped excavate so to to restore that but at the end of his life with that Kravitz with that sombreness with that sharpness with that courage to go into the darkness and come back with a little little parcel of truth that the ad was incredibly edifying. You know touching me and you mentioned his medical chair when I came to visit him it it. He literally looked like a King Ima thrown. It was unbelievable. He was so elegantly dressed as as always Yes but so beautiful and sitting in this grand chair in the small space. Yeah if it it took my breath away. At every time I visited him. It was always It was always thrilling for me but maybe even more so than and none of us. I mean I certainly didn't know that he was going anytime soon because we were already talking about what he was going to do. Next it's like really told music's I was writing for the next album uh-huh which is which is now happening. Yeah Yeah Yeah No. He was living often said to my friend. Cacao who again mixed and recorded both that record in this one in I said I you know he's staying alive for this. This is the only thing he's living for yet and Often unfortunately that statement was made that declaration was was uttered when we were going nowhere and it just felt like he was stalling and it was like dead. We get when you finish this record. You'RE GONNA you're GonNa let go but only when you finish the work. He was a pit bull at the sleeve of this mission whether it was blackening pages. You're finishing a a lyric and then refinishing it. But there was this indelible and very clear sense that he was living for the work. That's all I was living. That was that was why when he played me you. The new finished work. The first thing I said was so. What's the next song manipulate you know? Have you started on the next album yet. Knowing that he needed that. Yeah and knowing that we want to hear that good for everybody did he. Did he do that. Thing that he that he sometimes uh-huh we do Almost like a magician with a card trick did he dispense on you lyrics and he was working on. Yeah isn't that just magical. Yeah amazing one of the things. I missed the most is in dropping by and having him without a teleprompter. And we're talking about a man who is literally swimming in Tom's Tom's Tom's of notch words put like heavy condense and delicious the language and for him to pull them out and it doesn't matter whether it's pulling up blake or Shakespeare or his own work the acidity in the sharpness right to the end But then to hear the deliciousness of a concoction that he was in the in the throes of you know then it wasn't an isn't that just delicious memory believably unbelievably thrilling. And I'm sure over the years there were many that you got to hear that may be never. It came to pass. Well you know it's funny. Say That because on this record I had to beg him as dead you know. That's on puppets. Just just speak it. I know you never. I know you are not cosigning. You don't believe that there's music that exists for this yes or Knight of Santiago or As several others where I I said just just read it. Read it to to a Metronome S.. We'll figure that out later but don't not speak this into a microphone. Yes and That's how delicious some of those moments were you know. Yeah there's some unfortunate and get in fact.

"This is broken. Can Record liner notes for the digital age unjust. Enrichment Rick Rubin New Leonard Cohen for about a decade before his passing soon afterwards Leonard Son Adam reached out to rick wanted to tell the story about his father. The one you're about to hear when's the last time we saw each other as China remember. It's feels like so long ago all of it. I was China. Remember men of the feeling that I was left with In that story that my dad always used to tell about you and you became the brunt of almost like a punchline at but now the whole thing's dissipated into a general tapestry and feeling of you know I guess a a mix a cocktail a blend of maybe inaccuracies in feelings mixed together. But I I WANNA try letters summoned if it's appropriate S. The story about you took. Tell me the story as you remember it. It has something to do with. You've his general feeling about himself. Not Being a stallion in the race of show business us and by that I mean he would refer to other guys he came up with whether it's Christopherson or biohazard Zurve Joni your dylan or all. Cats are coming up in his era. As knowing what to do he would say these guys know what to do. All I've ever known. Is that a black lacking page. You would say that's where you have to understand that context before Rick Rubin enters into the conversation so then then the question is two who guys sitting at a table and some music industry related question emerges and he says I know Adam. I mean. They don't like we. We should ask Rick like Rick Rubin would know this and so very quickly that morphs into any question that we have asked. Rick Ask Rick you know I come to him with genuine question dad you know. What should I do about this? If it's music related and then turns into punchline said at him you know what I'm about to say ask Rick Rubin and of course I had met you know it's so funny I A and as I said I. I didn't know any of this until you told me this. Fda Dad passed. Yeah and so I felt like I had to track down on on the off chance he was right. You know I have after at Rick and I have subsequently asked you on many occasions. You've proven right every time. Wow so thank you my pleasure. It's an amazing story. It makes me laugh every time. Yeah me to tell me about the The New Your Dad's newest project I know is not credible. It so cool I suppose that The most gratifying part other than the fact that it wasn't a humiliating disaster. And the fact that is is resonant and that I think it's beautiful and people are responding to it so favorably. I think the headline is the person after person who hears it one of the most gratifying things that is set of it. Time and time again is that they feel like my God Leonard. Cohen is still here. He speaking to a still and with this message in tow this beautiful offering this command of languages inimitable. Gift that he's always had still having map. Of course. I could go into detail because I have the help. Tell me about the the specifics of the making of it like how how did it. How did the idea come straight from the beginning? Well the the first thing that happened was mile man passed away and I live about seven hundred fifty meters down the same street where you visited. And I'm left with this notion that one of the ways in which I can visit with him mm-hmm so palpably as opposed to so many other people who lose a parent or someone I've got all these recordings. And they are the some of his being. In many instances they are the some of what he practiced to be in this world and They are literally his words. His voice in recordings and at one point I out of desperation and a tiny tiny pinch of courage. I- I dared. Open up two sessions in my backyard and I just wanted to sit with him. I missed him And it was a wave of conversing of remaining in dialogue with the guy that was the beginning. And then something really unexpected and magical happened. A record is not affect complete. You know even good songs do not result in good recordings. Even in your hands doesn't matter if the artist and the song and the producer reducer and the musicians eight is not a guarantee of anything and so the fact that that a record actually emerged. It's finished and that's resonant that's emotional and that's truthful it's not in my hands I don't have the qualifications to do that. It emerged and it's out of our control. That's the it's out of our art controls again. And so I have two strikes against me for this record in terms of my actual true participation. You know one is that I neither have great and esteemed credentials and to. This wasn't my record. You Know I. I wasn't trying to make my choices. Of course I was trying to at all times because of this conversation that I was in dad would do you like this. Is this what you would do. Is this truthful and So it eliminated this tragic layer that we often impose on ourselves of doubt it was. I don't have to consult myself. I'll have to do his consult him. He was very clear about what he didn't in like. That's the great advantage that I had over people who are ag- you for example. I knew what he hated. Of course you know what's interesting never thought what about this before but for any other artist this would be a more difficult process. But because Leonard's music always always essentially started with the poetry and that was the basis of the greatness of the songs the heavy lifting was already done so this is the best example of being able to make something really truthful truthful to him where the participation that he already did really is the key. Yeah I I was thinking that on the drive up here. You know. There's a there's a song called the goal which is literally no more than a minute long and his reading which had no music who's just reading his reading. Sounds like a Thespian. From the other other side of the world the command of language the cinematic transport of quality and then to end you know by saying no one to follow nothing to teach except that the goal falls short of the reach. Can't leave my house or answer the phone going down a gain but I'm not alone settling at last accounts of the soul. I sit in my chair. I look at the street. The neighbor returns my smile. Mild defeat I move with believe.
