Song of the Day: Who By Fire by Leonard Cohen

‘Who By Fire’ is a song by Leonard Cohen, from his 1974 album ‘New Skin for the Old Ceremony’. The title and most of the lyrics derive from or are inspired by the second paragraph of Unetanneh Tokef, an eleventh-century Jewish liturgical poem recited on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The poem deals with the Lord’s control over the Books of Life and Death; the last sentence of the paragraph in question translates ‘But Repentance, Prayer, and Charity avert the severe Decree!’

Lyrics:

And who by fire, who by water
Who in the sunshine, who in the night time
Who by high ordeal, who by common trial
Who in your merry merry month of May
Who by very slow decay
And who shall I say is calling?

And who in her lonely slip, who by barbiturate
Who in these realms of love, who by something blunt
And who by avalanche, who by powder
Who for his greed, who for his hunger
And who shall I say is calling?

And who by brave assent, who by accident
Who in solitude, who in this mirror
Who by his lady’s command, who by his own hand
Who in mortal chains, who in power
And who shall I say is calling?
And who shall I say is calling?

And who by fire who by water
Who in the sunshine, who in the night time
Who by high ordeal, who by common trial
Who in your merry merry month of May
Who by very slow decay
And who shall I say is calling?
And who shall I say is calling?

……

“Who By Fire” is adapted loosely from the Hebrew prayer “U’Netaneh Tokef Kedushat Hayom” (“Let Us Tell How Utterly Holy This Day Is”), chanted on Yom Kippur. Like the original, Cohen’s song tells of a litany of ways one might meet their death: fire, water, suicide, drugs, and so on-some of which appear in the original prayer.

In Leonard’s own words:

On Rosh Hashanah will be inscribed and on Yom Kippur will be sealed how many will pass from the earth and how many will be created; who will live and who will die; who will die at his predestined time and who before his time; who by water and who by fire, who by sword, who by beast, who by famine, who by thirst, who by storm, who by plague, who by strangulation, and who by stoning. Who will rest and who will wander, who will live in harmony and who will be harried, who will enjoy tranquillity and who will suffer, who will be impoverished and who will be enriched, who will be degraded and who will be exalted.

In this duet with folksinger Janis Ian, Cohen conceives his own litany of “the ways you can leave this vale of tears,” which include downers, avalanche and “something blunt,” ending each verse with the agnostic query, “and who shall I say is calling?” He also encouraged his musicians to improvise Middle Eastern maqams around “Who By Fire” onstage.

Manifestation by Andre Gidoin – Makerie Studio

01Manifestation by Andre Gidoin - Makerie Studio

A series of layered Paper Art sculptures inspired by hypochondria and anatomy, featuring vital, sensory, and reproductive organs.

“A personal project inspired by a long and intimate relationship with hypochondria.
Started almost two years ago and informed by a lasting obsession with anatomy, this was a way of providing distraction from the various symptoms – felt and presumed – brought on by what is more commonly known as somatic symptom disorder. Performing practical tasks is an effective and productive way of avoiding irrational health-related fears, particularly when focusing on the sources of the fears themselves.”

Crown by Gerrel Saunders

02Crown by Gerrel Saunders

“In some black communities there’s still a stigma that kinky or coarse hair is “bad”, which couldn’t be further from the truth. There’s no such thing as good or bad when describing someone’s natural hair texture or type.

To those strugging to love and accept their natural hair because of societal pressures, remember this – straight, curly, kinky or wavy, it doesn’t make a difference. Embrace your hair the way it is, no matter what society tells you. All hair is good hair.

It’s your Crown”

Costume Designer Repairs Broken Wing of Butterfly

01Costume Designer Repairs Broken Wing of Butterfly

Professional costume designer Romy McCloskey used her skills to help save the life of an injured Monarch butterfly. “I fell into raising butterflies by accident when I found 3 caterpillars on a bush in my front yard,” she told Bored Panda. So after one of her darlings got injured, Romy knew she had to help.

I have always had a love for butterflies,” she said. “They have a very personal meaning to me. Before my mother died, almost 20 years ago, she said to me, ‘Romy, whenever you see a butterfly, know that I’m there with you, and that I love you.’

Her supplies included a towel, a wire hanger, contact cement, a toothpick, a cotton swab, scissors, tweezers, talc powder, and an extra butterfly wing (from one of her little girls that died a few days before).

Poem of the Day: Caged Bird by Maya Angelou

hope_is_freedom_by_epicloop-daggrp7.jpg

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.
