Life And Living...Sometimes The Best Advice Is No Advice At All.


From Jeff Buckley, as recorded by Italian broadcaster Luisa Cotardo in 1995, and brought to us via the absolutely fantastic Brain Pickings:

"...I have no advice for anybody except to, you know, be awake enough to see where you are at any given time and how that is beautiful and has poetry inside, even in places you hate..."

Not much more to say to that.

Except to mention that I know a place where I can find the poetry inside just about everytime within Mr. Buckley's version of a traditional tune that Mumford and Son, and a movie by the Cohen Brothers, have lately made famous.

Buckley's version is somehow simultaneously unrecognizable and instantly captivating...

E. and I did this tune awhile back...In the much more traditional vein...
