The high priest of the tower of love has left the building.

Leonard Cohen, june 2008

I’m bidding farewell to a meaningful friend. Unknowingly, he gave me so much for so long and asked for nothing in return. His poetry keeps on casting meaning into hours, days, months and years of my waking  and less so times.

This morning however, another truth was reveled, the United States will now be governed by a different breed of custodian.
