  1. I think it is a very dangerous and misleading thing to equate creative work with what is going on in real life. The truth of the situation may be very different than any speculation. Or it may not. Interesting though all around. Thanks Bear.

    Bear, this is definitely a dance to the end of love. Beautiful choices…again. 🙂

    It’s sad that the Civil Wars broke up. It probably had something to do with love.

        • Poison & Wine written by John Paul White, Joy Williams & Chris Lindsey

          You only know what i want I you to
          I know everything you don’t want me to
          your mouth is poison your mouth is wine
          you think your dreams are the same as mine

          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will
          I always will

          I wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
          well the less I give the more I get back
          your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
          I don’t have a choice, but I’d still choose you

          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will

          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will
          I don’t love you but I always will

          I always will
          I always will
          I always will
          I always will

          Poison & Wine is a musical snapshot about the dichotomy of love – that while it can be the thing that destroys you, it can also be the very same thing that beckons and builds you. This song was our attempt at being as brutally honest about the dangerous and beautiful process of knowing and being known. (-Joy Williams, The Civil Wars)

          The Civil Wars are Joy Williams & John Paul White.

  3. Morning Bear, at this time only you and I have posted. I’ve just made the rounds via your links post. Listening to more of Civil Wars as I type.
    Dance Me to the End of Love is a favorite gem.

      • Bonjour,
        Mari Boine gives me the chills–in a good way.

        I know we’ve got a comment thread somewhere about the trio of related links that appeared curtesy of wp. Well, today I find them on my posts too. Odd. I guess a new tweak from the geek team.

        I’m glad you found the Warsaw Village Band in the sidebar–I picked that particular one with you in mind. 🙂

        It’s Friday and it’s supposed to get horrible here weatherwise–as in ICE. If I’m not online for an extended time it’ll be because I can’t get online. LOL.

        Take care.

        • Are you stocked up with goodies to eat and books and paint and canvas and paper and ink or pencils or other mediums and comforters and long johns (janes) and LOTS of socks? And a chess set? Wish hibernating was possible … sometimes. ‘course that would lad to burst pipes and more critter company that is desired. And stuff being co-opted by non-hibernators.

          Did you notice that Lisa and Mari sang their duets with the same Bretonne? Lisa : THE ONE I LOVE Mari: I AM WAITING . The Civil Wars called it quits.

          • There is enough to eat with a pork roasting slowly in the oven. Books galore, pen, ink, watercolors, paper. Chess indeed. 🙂 And Sarge and Lily are always waiting to play.
            Ditto the wish for hibernating. I may do a version of that very soon. It seems the rain has arrived early.

            I had noticed the Bretonne–thank you for confirming one and the same. Both are very beautiul pieces of music.
            How do you mean your comment that The Civil War called it quits? As in the music group disolving? Or something else?

            I posted a third, sort of, love theme for Lovers. Deirdre of the Sorrows has been on my mnid for quite some time lately so it seemed like the time to give her story a little spotlight.

            For now…

          • Yes, they stopped working and singing together.

            Deirdre of the Sorrows. Romeo and Juliet , Tristan & Isolde, Arn and Cecelia

            Sad, sad, sad.

            I’ve edited your third post into the links.

          • Is there an official reason why? It’s a shame. I really like their sound and their songs.

            Like

          • Me too. Dunno about official reasons. Pehaps in the Nashville magazines, or something, there are some official statements. In some live performances, John Paul seems to be pulling back and away and being stiff and it is Joy who is trying to loosen him up, only the wrong part is getting loosened up and he gets more rigid instead.—– It may have gotten just too painful for their respective spouses, families, and themselves (there is a rumor in the comments that Joy is pregnant — now, also). But I don’t know. These on stage vignettes could be interpreted many ways….

            They do sing well together, they have such similar diction and phrasing that might be difficult to blend so effectively with others.

            Or maybe it is just a creative break to rest recoup while they work on new material? And everybody is fine. 🙂 That is what I hope. 🙂
