Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Vickie, Thanks very much for the photos and info! Wonderful memories for you to have! Looking at the photo with Leonard’s back, his body angles are slightly different from the b & w photo at Dominique Issermann’s Instagram page. It’s as if it was the previous or next shot in line or maybe there actu...

Re: New recording of the song "Book of longing"

I am wondering if there is a recording available or will be one available of Leonard reading from the 'Book of Longing' without music. I ask this as I was at the MAC exhibit last week in Montreal and one of the exhibit rooms had this recording. It was a brilliant and beautiful thing to experience. ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Vickie, Thank you so much for your report - I totally enjoyed it! And don’t worry; it could have been longer still! The photos were great too! As I was reading from, “I was standing at the foot of his grave” .... I confess there was more than one tear in my eyes and lo and behold, reading further ri...

Re: Montreal: comments and feelings

I have made I a little commemorative slideshow, featuring a wonderful song by Li’l Andy: “On My Way to Heaven Anyhow.” It includes this verse: “The only holy man standing sang “Be assured: There is a blaze of light in every word. There is a blaze of light in every word. I’m on my way to heaven anyh...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Thank you 4, I love the way you have catagorised events as LC lines in your report and I agree with Alan that it wasn't too long! Not like my answer here which is far too short :) I did listen live to the CBC radio 2 streaming of the concert so I have an audio idea of how it went and I've watched a ...

Vickie and 4, Just in case I don’t get to post here before you both leave for Montreal, I most definitely want to wish you the very best of times.

Re: Leonard's tombstone

Mary, Thank you for posting the photo. I’ve tried not to comment on this but one simply cannot go through life with your head in the sand! I am doubly sad at this time of the year because my mother died on Halloween evening at 7pm, exactly 7 days before Leonard died. Lots of 7’s in LC’s inscription ...

A new song featuring Leonard Cohen called Valley Boy by Canadian Indie rock band Wolf Parade. http://blog.kexp.org/2017/08/21/song-of-the-day-wolf-parade-valley-boy/ “Valley Boy” clearly echoes lyrics from their fellow Canadian Leonard Cohen with references to “Marianne” and “bird on that wire.” Wol...
