Paul Simon on Late Night (1982)

An interesting interview with Paul Simon on David Letterman's Late Night. It is pre Graceland, and post Concert in Central Park.  There is a human quality that is almost as good as the early days of low budget PBS programming. Among other things, Simon talks about the Concert in Central Park and the events that resulted in his writing "The Late Great Johnny Ace." He also sings a few lines of "Citizen of the Planet," which he says is "half written" (it became a song several years later and was sung at the Simon & Garfunkel "Old Friends Reunion Tour" in 2003).

Monday Music: Wartime Prayers (Paul Simon)

"Prayers offered in times of peace are silent conversations,
Appeals for love or loves release, in private invocations.

But all that is changed now,
Gone like a memory from the day before the fires.
People hungry for the voice of God
Hear lunatics and liars..."

Saturday Haiku: Walkway

sometimes a walkway
requires a measured effort 
glad feet will follow
