Bought this at a local bookstore that was closing. Probably two or three years ago. What’s sad is I can’t remember the name of the store.
I have gleaned many things from this book, but I have not found that any of my vintage/antique treasures are truly treasures. But, hey it’s only the 2007 edition.
Reference books must surely fall solidly into the obsolete category. Yet I do enjoy randomly opening a page and landing upon something obscure and precious.
Status: Take a few more stabs at photographing the tops of the pages. Then donate to library. Hopefully they take these types of books.

Alt Title: Untitled Book No. 162 Honoring the Old and Forgotten.
Do not forget old friends
you knew long before I met you
the times I know nothing about
who lives by himself
and only visits you on a raid.
From “Selected Poems”. Leonard Cohen.
I will not say he is old. I saw him perform 2 years ago and he kept the music going for quite a while. Unlike Madeleine Peyroux, who disdainfully decided to close up early. She is at least 35 years his junior. He puts her to shame. End rant. I still like her songs and voice. Especially her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me to the End of Love and of his Blue Alert.
