Hello, Box-of-rain and everyone else.
I'm new to this Forum Also...but I dont feel new !
I have been following Mr Cohen and his Magical Tour since it was fist announced, through my wife mainly, who is the big fan in our household. However, the constant playing of Leonard Cohen Albums over many years has permeated into all the family including the youngest. I was very aware of the Forum but never signed up. I do look forward to coming home from work and getting the lastest updates from my wife on what was happening.
I have been lucky enough to get to a few concerts and tried to share the experience through some youtube uploads. I though it was now time that I came out and announced that yes I am A Fan too . It is all very exciting and with the Tour unfolding like a blossoming flower there is always something to look forword to, which is a nice diversion in these depressing ecconomic times.
The ability to reach out all over the world and infuse so many people with moments of Joy, contemplation and inner peace through your music and lyrics is a wonderful gift. I will be eternally grateful to Mr Cohen for following his heart to share that gift with us. I must also mention my beloved wife (irishmar) who shone a torch on the way for me. (thank you dear).
I am really looking forward to New York. I will be savouring and aborbing every minute of it .
Bye for now. IrishAL.
