Woke up this morning, with a splitting headache. Business as usual.
Surprisingly, silence wasn’t welcome today. I usually enjoy sitting alone, with just the sound of the cars driving past my apartment and the occasional purr of Miss Freja. But this morning, I needed something to fill the stillness of my Sunday morning.
Leonard is always up to the task, when I need him to fill the soundtrack of my life. He always has the perfect song, no matter how I am feeling, when I call out for him. He is a loyal pal, when it comes to soul soothing.
This morning was no exception.
I love this song because of its melancholic feel, although it is truly about hope. I also like that it isn’t just another love song. Mr Cohen was very concerned by everything going on in the world, and in this adaptation of La complainte du partisan, The Partisan, he depicts the historic background of the “résistance”, running away from the German soldiers… It makes me realize how lucky most of us are. Even if life isn’t perfect, the vast majority of us have never had to face war.
And it is always a treat to listen to Leonard singing in French… I’ll let you judge!
Oh, and by the way, the headache is almost gone, as I get prepared to tag this post. Thank you, Leonard!
