I'll start at the top and make my way through, but I treated myself to the video first. :)

Hallelujah. Amen.

Morning, Glynn.

Glynn: I cheated and am wasted. I watched the video first. Have to admit that I never got beyond that. Thanks for sharing this. What a powerful song!!

The posts at Image Journal were particularly fine this week.

I've loved the Cohen "Hallelujah" since hearing it for the first time.

Lots of wonderful written gifts this week.

Thank you for including "On the Scene".
