Beating together till the end of time
You know we’re two hearts believing in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time”

“Like two stars in the depths of the sky
This gravity is just irresistible
We spin around each other, you and I
When I fell for you, I fell into your orbit.”

The flow of two: “Dance Me to the End of Love” Leonard Cohen

Read these lyrics in celebration of a healthy and loving marriage……

“Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh, let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love”

Songwriter: Leonard Cohen

Listen the words that lead to the path of love

A concatenation about birds: Mockingbird

All day and all night

Endless mimicry cheeping

Lives nearby and far

The Northern Mockingbird has a broad repertoire. It can mimic everything from other birds to inanimate objects. And it does so at all hours of the day and night. As poet Randall Jarrell put it: On the willow’s highest branch, monopolizing Day and night, cheeping, squeaking, soaring, The mockingbird is imitating life.

The states of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas proudly name the Northern Mockingbird as one of their state symbols.
