Re: Important Announcement in August

Jarkko, you always did love casually dropping the "P" word on us ;-)

.....but I have noticed the absence of another "P" word so that could maybe narrow it down considerably!

How cool that one of your ancestors was interned there! I would love to hear more about it!
Vickie,
I thought I’d better not clutter Leonard’s forum with my ancestors antics :) and I've sent you a PM.

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

B4- You mentioned that your ancestry search had some interesting people in it... any relation to Joan of Arc or other famous soul? Vickie, No Joan of Arc in my ancestors but one of them also met his fate in a most horrible way dying for what he believed in as well. He was hung, drawn and quartered ...

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

Vickie, I’m so very pleased that you love your Diplomas :D And I’m also pleased via PM to know that 4 does too :D We had only been communicating by words so he never had any visuals and literally took me at my words and trusted me. Thank you 4! Speaking of words, he insisted I include that verse fro...

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

Ah Vickie, Confession time! 4 and I have been doing a wee bit more than thinking about you ;-) Seeing as you were nearing the end of this initial knowledge stage about Leonard, 4 had a great idea I think he was subliminally hatching (see Clue 3) and asked me if I would design something to formalise ...

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

Vickie, I truly love what you have written to Leonard and said about this last album. I know you were delaying listening to it and the reasons for that but I think these words Jean wrote on the previous page are very appropriate at this time – Jean Fournell wrote: Vickie, you are still in the proces...

Re: Between Your Love and Mine - Requiem in Ireland

Joe, I don't think John MacKenna was aware or maybe he forgot that poem has already been published in Book of Longing 2006 page 178. There’s a self-portrait line sketch entitled Room 215, Kemps Corner Hotel to the right of the poem. The audio has two prepositions different - "in" for "at" and "so" i...

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

Hi Vickie, It sounds like you are having a wonderful time on your holidays! If your ears have been burning you must know that 4 and I have been thinking about you too :) Vickie wrote: Just wanted to let you know I am still here.

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

There has been three different occasions quite recently when Leonard has been represented and also spoken about on TV here in Australia. 1. The eventual winner of The Voice sang you 'know what song' in his semi final appearance. 2. A couple of days ago I was watching a travel show about Canada when ...

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

Vickie, I hope the wedding went well and you managed to include some LC songs somewhere on the day and also found a closet Cohen friend from Canada or elsewhere! As you were seasonally speaking, Fall (Autumn here) is my favourite time of the year too and I was born the day after the last day of autu...

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

Hi Vickie, seeing that you are listening to Popular Problems and have a few days left before the wedding I thought I might just squeeze in this info for you. Plus I have complied with your request in May about another thing near the bottom of this post ;-) I did say previously that I didn’t count th...

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

Vickie, I’m glad to hear that! I knew you would really like it and I didn’t want you to miss out. As I said before, it’s an absolute favourite of mine as is of the same era, the Recent Songs album! I meant to say before that in Rasky's film there are two other different lines for Bird On The Wire an...

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

Vickie, I know you are very busy at the moment and I think you haven’t seen this I posted over the previous page. I know you really wanted this film - The Song Of Leonard Cohen by Harry Rasky. I tried to search for the film "The Song of LC 1979" by Harry Rasky in hopes of finding a video I could ord...
