Broke Down Spirit

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Love this song and have played it a lot, but with Cohen. I remember dancing with my newborn son in 2003, and I sang the refrain and suddenly he sounded like he was trying to imitate the word Hallelujah. I was really surprised. But maybe he had a special feeling for it. We listened to Leonard Cohen at the hospital when he was born. 😉

    Well, this song always make me think of that moment.

    I hope you’ll have a great 2013.


  2. I love it when we have beautiful memories associated with certain songs. I bet it was lovely for you to be dancing with your son. How wonderful.

    My middle daughter was born in 2003 (in September).

    I will be sharing my 2013 plans for an “art-centered healing journey” I plan to take. I can’t wait to talk about that.

    I hope you have a wonderful 2013 too!
