Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I think I remember that there was an archive of work that wasn't to be released until after Leonard's death but I can't remember any details. Does anyone recall? Thank you to anyone who responds.

Re: the sun pours down like honey

Each of your drawings makes me light up a little. Lately when I see images of Leonard from this period I go wondering who is that man. I got so used to the Leonard of recent years that it's become hard for me to comprehend that the younger Leonard is who became the older Leonard. Does anyone else ex...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Jarkko -- It is very special to me that you mention this. I have thought about this poem a few times since the sad news. My father introduced me to Leonard Cohen's work when I was younger. Cohen Live was traveling music in the car of my youth. I thought it was magic. By Dear Heather I was old enoug...

Re: prayer & meditation

If there were a place I could live from it would be strong, fragile, fundamental joy. Sadness would be there too Jean, no less fundamental. What do you think I'll pray for tonight? That depth of experience, not the sidelong glance I more often give my life. Thank you for reminding me it's possible.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I cannot think of a time when I did a thing in a panic and it was the right thing to do. I have created mess after disaster after train wreck doing things in a panic. Without exception the road out of the disaster has been deep and worth every bit of its necessary, ridiculously hard work. Leonard's ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Joe & Doron- I am silently reading your words about the new album. I don't feel capable right now of what you're doing. & the place these particular messages hold on the forum right now feels exposed. I'm too shy & inarticulate to say much here but I want you to know that I appreciate your contribut...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

My favorite line from Popular Problems is 'I was alone on the road & your love was so confusing.' When I can't see how what's real is right & perfect that's my prayer. Today I heard 'They ought to give my heart a medal For letting go of you' I have that medal. It is inside a little tin in a lockbox ...

prayer & meditation

a genderless figure in black
throwing a rock as if in anger
in the same place not two hours ago
I gave the medicine of tears
& prayer to my panic

what do I do with my eyes

Re: Were Leonard Cohen to write a memoir

I'd like to know what the ends of romantic relationships were like for him. And the beginnings, and everything in between. I'd also like to know what Leonard's relationship with god has been like. What is prayer like for you is a question I'd like answered. On the double. You know, nothing too intim...

Re: Loser on the Moon: On Leonard Cohen, Fandom, and Posteri

This was such a pleasure to read! There is a person in the world who wrote an essay on Leonard Cohen & titled one section What We Talk About When We Talk About Leonard Cohen, like Raymond Carver. I wish the writer were a woman. We should all be writing such essays about Leonard in our style. I love ...
