FIVE LEAVES LEFT

Nick Drake


BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY - “Love Comes To Me”

When the numbers get so high
Of the dead flying through the sky
O, I don’t know why
Love comes to me
Love comes to me

When your mouth is laying ope’
Your head’s knocked back you don’t cope
You’re out of rings and flowers and soap
Love comes to me
Love comes to me

Love comes to me
Love comes and all
It’s my hands, it’s my heart, and it’s my lips
And that is all

When the fever hits on your forehead
And ‘trusive mice chew up your bed
And you call on God but you find, of course, God is dead
Love comes to you
Yes love comes to you

O, sugar won’t you be my only
'Cause I’m a hard-hearted honey-pot hungry shepherd
And I’m longing to be born for you, that’s her

Love comes to you
Love comes and all
It’s your hands, it’s your heart, it’s your lip
And that is all

In the night time when you feel me
And the backs of your knees they conceal me
And your eyeballs how they unreal me
Love comes once again to me
Yeah I think love comes to me

ROCCO E I SUOI FRATELLI 
(English: ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS)

Luchino Visconti
Italy, 1960
MORRISSEY - “First Of The Gang To Die”

You have never been in love
until you’ve seen the stars
reflect in the reservoirs

And you have never been in love
until you’ve seen the dawn rise
behind the Home for the Blind

We are the Pretty Petty Thieves
and you’re standing on our streets
where Hector was the
first of the gang with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die, oh my

Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die, oh my

You have never been in love
until you’ve seen the sunlight thrown
over smashed human bone

We are the Pretty Petty Thieves
and you’re standing on our streets
where Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and the first to do time
the first of the gang to die
Such a silly boy

Hector was the first of the gang
with a gun in his hand
and a bullet in his gullet
and the first lost lad
to go under the sod

And he stole from the rich and the poor
and the not very rich and the very poor
and he stole all hearts away
He stole all hearts away
ADUA E LE COMPAGNE
(English: ADUA AND HER FRIENDS)

Antonio Pietrangeli
Italy, 1960
SAMUEL BECKETT from Endgame

I use the words you taught me. If they don’t mean anything any more, teach me others. Or let me be silent.
PENZEYS ....

I don’t know if you got the chance to glance at any of today’s headlines, but today the Republican Party as we’ve come to know it officially came to an end. Sure, those in control are going to lurch around for a bit and fling chaos in every direction as their power melts away, but as of today it is done. The time is now for everyone across the entire political spectrum to come together and rejoice! Hip-Hip-Hooray! Hip-Hip-Hooray! Hip-Hip-Hooray!

Today is also a good day to point out that what has happened to our politics over these past decades has never been an attack on liberalism. Liberalism has flourished in these times. Season Liberally™ is now a Penzeys trademark and it’s probably pretty valuable as trademarks go. The target of the unlimited political spending that has done such great damage to America has always been our conservative values. And up until today they’ve hit their mark time and time again, not only taking control of the Republican Party, but ridding it of everything that lives within the values of conservation. Today is a day for conservatives to rejoice as well.

But none of today’s goodness could have happened without people just like you keeping your hope alive, without people just like you continuing to care. The rule of law made a big return in America today, but that could never have happened if there were no one like you still caring that there is a difference between right and wrong. Thank you! This is the evening to get your free fortified $30+ Vote for Hope box with added Soul Pin and Embrace Hope magnet. You’ve earned it.

For your well-earned box of hope visit us at penzeys.com and enter 11320 in the apply code box at checkout. No need to place the Vote for Hope box in your basket, the code will do that for you and for free. Shipping charges will apply but we’ve tried to help with that, too. Until midnight our usual $40 minimum for free shipping is just $30, and if even that level of spending is beyond your reach right now, we’ve halved our shipping rate on orders under $30 to just $3.95. This is too good of a day and too good of a deal to not find a home for one of these hopeful boxes.

And if you’re not sure how to reach $30 in spending to get your free shipping, we’ve made additional Hope boxes just $10 each to simplify the math. They make great gifts and the holidays aren’t that far off.

And I say this without snark and without any conscious desire to manipulate, but today really was a very-very good day for conservatives. It’s the forces that took control of your party and stripped it of its values that lost today. There is absolutely no reason conservatives can’t be on the good guys’ side when it comes to racism, health care, refugees, affordable accessible birth control, gender equality, and pretty much every pressing issue of today. Conservation was virtually named after you. The forces that twisted conservative values into opposing conservation lost big today. That is a Victory for every living thing on this planet. Seriously, REJOICE!!!

Our nation’s enemies didn’t co-opt the Republican Party for no reason. America and its voice for freedom and against dictatorships matter to people everywhere. We have our work cut out for us to unravel the corruption that has taken hold of the republican-held branches of our government. To truly mend this damage both conservatives and liberals will have to find common goals. To get back on course America is going to need both our oars in the water. It’s time for you conservatives to get off of the sidelines and back into the game.

And I respect conservatives too much to cut republicans any slack until they’ve rooted out every bit of the virus that took over their party and turned it into a force for radiating cruelty. Or maybe the time has come to bury the republican brand and restart as something new or simply become a branch of the party still standing. Either way, after today those of you who see yourselves as conservatives now have your chance to take back your values. The opening is right there in front of you. Please get to it.

This is too good of a day and too good of a deal to miss the midnight deadline for free Hope, Soul and a V for this Victory. Act now, and get your free Vote for Hope box to remember this day. Salsa/Pico is awesome and so easy to use. America’s future is a tasty one. Just remember the key to your free hope and to righting America’s future is 11320. Act now!

DO THE RIGHT THING

Spike Lee
USA, 1989

DŌGEN

Joyful in this mountain retreat yet still melancholy,
Studying the Lotus Sutra every day,
Practicing zazen singlemindedly;
What do love and hate matter
When I’m here alone,
Listening to the sound of the rain late in this autumn evening.

CHAGDUD TULKU RINPOCHE

What is the meaning of butter lamp offerings? We do not offer the lamps because enlightened beings need to see them. Rather, the offering of light is a means of dispelling the darkness of our own ignorance, giving rise to clarity and wisdom.

We offer them with the wish that their light will illuminate the lower realms and the bardo, relieving the torment of beings who suffer in darkness. We also aspire that all beings will develop greater mental clarity in order to discover the causes of long-lasting happiness in virtuous actions of body, speech, and mind.

Finally, we offer them so that the inner light of great knowing will arise in all beings’ minds and remove the darkness of ignorance and intellectual obscurations.
