Well, Leonard, I know you like to work - by the way, your new album's a tour de force; I just reviewed it, five stars, my head's still spinning at the poetry (yours, not mine). But I hope you get to kick back on your birthday and indulge in some guilty pleasures.
This is where I take out my ukulele and sing Happy Birthday, in C, the people's key. I'll spare everyone the pain by posting it.
Wishing you good health and joy.

I celebrate the happy day you came into the world Leonard, not least of all for the plethora of wonderful true poetry and song you have shared with us over the years.

I celebrate your Birthday especially this year when, instead of you retiring, we once again get to experience this delicious sense of anticipation, for another gift.

May your Birthday be happy and wonderful!

Cheers,
Klaus Offermann

Hallelujah! Another birthday.

This snippet from a review just to hand ...

"For the past 25 years I've had this notion that on every successive Leonard Cohen record his voice would get deeper and deeper until one day he'd put out an album so subsonic that you'd just feel it, not hear it. Well, we're close. On this day, Leonard Cohen's 82nd birthday, he's given us a gift: It's dark, it's beautiful and it's deep. "You Want It Darker" is the title track to his soon-to-be-released album, his 14th studio album in his 49-year recording career. "


The rest of the review is a bit morose so I will edit that out.

Just keep Tending Your Garden and we'll be admiring the flowers and the weeds and whatever else finds root to bring us joy as it has in the past and will into the future.

Darker. LIghter. Any way that pleases you.

We will be happy with it all.

Keep well, Friend.
