Re: CONCERT REPORT: Istanbul, September 19, 2012

All these years, I persistently stood aside and waited for Leonard to find me... You may not know it, but he is magical in so many ways, one in particular, he would always, always show up at my time of need. He first found me when I was 14, as I was in the forbidden zone next door going through my b...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Istanbul, Turkey, Sept 19

I wished I was born 77 years ago.... I wished I strolled the streets of Montreal as I grew up... studied at McGill....

It's too late for all that... now, all that I have is three nights with Leonard Cohen that I will remember when I close my eyes for the last time....

Re: ISTANBUL CONFIRMED - TICKETS ON SALE

while I am here in the hands of a relentless insomnia induced by tomorrow night's great event, I stumbled upon my tirade on this thread:))) Half embarrassed, half amused.... for whom it may concern: my turkish standoff:))) is over...

Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

Happy birthday Mr. Leonard Cohen....

It's always, always difficult writing to you..... Not a day goes by without my famous blue raincoat or the stranger song....

Everyday is about wishing you well....

Happy birthday today, as it was yesterday, and will be tomorrow....

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Istanbul, August 5 and 6

Stuck in the moment..... and can't get out of it... That's exactly what had happened to me... A big paranthesis is opened, wide opened and the life is simply trying to squeeze in.... run away in tears? In my case I couldn't run away, to this day, I am still crying everytime I come across with Leonar...

Re: Chelsea Hotel Plaque

I want to thank Dick, Sue, and all the other members of the forum for their dedication. This spring I will walk down that road, stop by the entrance and remember you all. It is a priviledge to be a member of such a noble family. Thank you all for letting me in.
