Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, Israel, Ramat Gan Stadium 9/24/09

It's 4 in the morning, the end of September, here in London town I'm drunk on fatigue and elation, but I just had to add to this thread : Leonard, toda raba, thank you, merci from the bottom of all our hearts. So astonishing that Leonard can be at the same time a man of love, of truth, of lust, of s...

Re: Leonard Cohen lands in Israel

I second that, brightnow. I once made a documentary for BBC Television about the medieval struggles over the Holy Land between Mongols, Christians and Muslims ; Israel was the only place we were able to hire a helicopter to film aerial shots, even at the height of the last Intifada. As you say, airs...

Re: The final poster

I add my thanks to those already here. What a thrill. I have on my wall one other photo-compilation poster including a photo of me; a poster promoting a collection of stories of Jewish Mothers and Daughters for a filmed archive a friend of mine made. This LC poster will go up alongside it. I'm proud...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Barcelona, September 21 (Leonard's birthday)

This is the most passionately I've ever looked forward to concert reports, and fuzzy YouTube postings... Here's celebrating the fact that a great man can age gracefully, which is a sweet thing indeed. Hurry up, Forum friends! When you've finished celebrating with each other and the music, please des...

Re: Leonard Cohen has grown into his Music

So true, Rodali, beautiful. Thank you. What's particularly amazing is that LC's ever-improving music and stature were wonderful to start with! It is quite miraculous how much more he always has to offer... (and from what I've seen, the musicians in his band have never been better either...) Leonard,...

Re: A thought on this website, and a thank you

I second Lizzy's welcome to the newcomers, and totally agree, Lorca and Spanish stories are surely as relevant as any other Cohen-passion in these scrolls of the Cohenite fraternity. Lizzy, many thanks for your words. They are far too kind, but thank you... from the sad place, such tenderness is lif...

Re: Leonard's response to the boycott

As a Jewish woman who lived in Israel for two years, watching with dismay the current rhetoric of Netanyahu and Lieberman etc and the equally rabid extremists on the other side, like everyone else I despair of ever seeing peace in that region... the entrenchment on both sides is so extreme, so infle...

Re: A thought on this website, and a thank you

Dear Tindy, Thank you so much for the song! Well spotted; it's perfect. There's so much accumulated musical knowledge here, someone probably knows a song for every situation. Have you ever come across the brilliant poetry anthology, STAYING ALIVE? If not, I recommend it to all as essential; it's a s...

Re: A thought on this website, and a thank you

(Having looked at Lizzy's photo in the BIRTHDAY MOSAIC thread, and her post there commenting on every single photo and person) Could there actually BE anyone with a bigger heart and a lovelier face than Lizzytish? Methinks not. I went back and read some of your other postings, Lizzy. Wow. So I'm get...

A thought on this website, and a thank you

Yesterday, on a late summer Saturday in London, I went to a Feast of Strangers; a conversation gathering in the park to honour Theodore Zeldin's belief that intimate and contentful conversation with strangers is essential for rebuilding our communities. It occurred to me that this website more than ...

Re: YOUR PHOTOS FOR OUR MOSAIC PROJECT

Wijbe, thank you for the lovely Chelsea video (and the others, all great!); very kind of you. My broken heart is mending; these things always do, the life force is stronger than sorrow. I just wish love lasted as long as friendship, but it doesn't often. Guess which singer most helps me at times lik...
