Between the Bars

I'm back from a brief downtime. Bit starved for inspiration so thought I would continue the Elliott Smith theme.

I have just read Lea's blog on the struggles she has had with being understood by others as she learnt to cope with Bianca's leukemia.

It made me think of the importance I hold on friendship. I have missed the contact with my fellow bloggers who have their highs and lows to share.

Those of you who have followed my blog realise that Lea is a loyal and valued friend of mine. We have shared a lot together in the last 6 months. Of recent times we have shared an interest in Elliott Smith, a new passion for Lea but one I have had for about 6 years. Sometimes we g mail as we listen to some of his concerts and discuss the merits of his songs.

Last week Lea recorded some of my covers of Elliott Smith. I have already posted the links for Angeles and Waltz No 2.

Here is another of our favourites called Between the Bars. Click the link below to have a listen!

Thank you for your comment Paul!

I'm glad you did a blog entry. Have missed reading your updates!

Between the Bars - another great cover you did! One of my favourites of the Elliott Smith songs!

Hi Paul, I didn't think I'd seen your posts for a couple of days. Good to see you back.
It does come across that you and Lea are good friends and that is great. Everybody needs to have good friends.

Glad to see you back in "Blogland". I have not been posting as often either - perhaps it's the weather. Friendships certainly add a lot to our lives and cherished friends are the best reward in life.

Sometimes we just need a break. I was gone for a few weeks myself.

It's great to have a friend like that and Lea sounds like such a great person.
