Oh, Megan... Oh, Paula... That photo is classic! Stunningly beautiful of you both!! He's so handsome and so happy :D . And you are happy, too :D 8) :D !! I want a print of it... the kind made at a pharmacy, the old-fashioned kind, the kind you can hold in your hand... glossy... and can frame. Yes... I sure will frame. I am SO happy for you, Megan :D !!! Impossible for me to look at it without smiling, too :D . And, Paula... I know you're happier with this photo of you and Leonard than you were your last. Please include it with Megan's for my portfolio! Splendid 8) .


Love to you both,
well all three, really,
Lizzie

And, Pete, with your flying issues... well, if Muhammed can't go to the Mountain... I guess the Mountain will just come to Muhammed, eh? Good on you... :D .

Just read your report from earlier Linmag - we will never let you hear the end of it, that you missed meeting Leonard Cohen for some lifesized terracotta statues. You have have to see the funny side.


There's a funny side? :?

OK, give me another six years or so!

Great photo... I'm so glad to see EVERYONE who made it!!! Also VERY glad to see that Leonard doesn't look the least bit stressed in discussing this topic... in fact, he looks very at ease, relaxed, and happy. Good signs :D .

The look on both of your faces is so warm in the one of you two, Andrea 8) .

Oh, you fortunate ones who were there 8) . [I know this has to be killing you, seeing all these photos, Linda :cry: .]

Lizzy, Eric had just asked Leonard for a look at his little black book and Leonard was reaching into his pocket to get it out. As Leonard did this, he was saying to Eric that, "There's some really good numbers in here and that bloke what wrote the rap about Paula's grin was right on the nose. She's some hot chick!! but go easy on the gin." 8) Then Leonard asked if anyone had seen his glass....

:lol: And you've noted Eric's look of baited-breath anticipation, yes :lol: ? Trying to stay cool and not to over-grin? It really does seem to be a man-to-man sharing... but I can't imagine Leonard would turn Paula over to anyone and he knows dang well where that glass is!

I LOVE this photo of Leonard 8) 8) 8) ... Sheila seems to have overheard a bit of the conversation and is watching to see how Eric will respond, thinking, "This is going to tell me a lot about that young man... "; whereas, Frauke, also trying to remain cool, seems to be sharing a look of contained astonishment, with someone else who heard their exchange, as well.

Your scenario is tops for wit, but I still like my very first, and original, better :D . We must remember that Leonard is a gentleman. The Chelsea Hotel was a real lesson in that.

Good Heavens! Leonard needs to do this more often... the side of him that Anjani gets to see is obviously so healthy for him :D !! He just looks immersed in a great time... what a lead-in to the Conversation and the remainder of the evening.

BEAUTIFUL photo, Andrea!

I just went and got my supervisor to show her these last two photos :D .

Hi,
So good to read your stories.When I conquer this photo site maze,I'll leave the other photos I have somewhere and send a link for people to access them.
This is a good one of Harry and Leonard,though I wish he had been taking the photos as some of the others would have turned out better.
I've got more of Eric!!!
Hopefully I'll find time to relate a few of my own stories.
Late Sunday night/Monday morning a bus tour of South London.Although this wasn't as scary as the Tiger Lilies show.
Like Saturday afternoon(and night)and Friday(Jim White),Sunday was a great time.
It was good to meet you all.
Look after yourselves and (each) others
All the best

It's been really good to read all of the posts in this thread from all of the people who were there and to have a sight of their photographs of one another with Leonard.

My thanks to all of you who were there.

It was great to see everyone at the meetup, although I wish I'd got to Camden early enough to hear Pete sing. I did though see Henning, and later Harry, perform, and got to say hello at least to most people there. So I took a few photos at the Green Note, which you can see by clicking on the picture below. Thanks especially to Padma and Diane for organising it, but to everyone who attended for making the event special (as ever, when cohenfans meet) and thanks to Leonard for taking the time to appear too. I hope everyone who wanted to talk to him got the chance to do so... (if they weren't with the terracotta army anyway :shock: )

There's just no real fitting way to say how Awesome this was...all adjectives pale in the light of reality.

BIG props to Jarkko for playing miracle worker.


Margaret-thanks for sharing the snap of Dolores. I asked Jarkko the other day if she made it to this party and was delighted to find out she did and was able to meet the Guy. And of course you helped in that process.

cheers,
Laurie
