OK - it wasn't Leonard Cohen, but it was a spiritual concert nonetheless. I got an invite to go to a concert of love songs from King David and Rumi, celebrating the Jewish festival of love - Tu B'Av. The singer I know from my interfaith retreats and the Jewish Renewal Friday night services. Miriam Ahuvatel Iron was accompanied by two young musicians, one playing sitar and one playing an assortment of Indian/other percussion instruments. We sat in someone's beautiful backyard in the German Colony; the ground was covered in clover and there was the sound of water trickling behind the lush plants. If it weren't for the mosquitos, I could have sat there for hours on end.
