!!! THANKS!!! Talk about making someone FEEL GOOD
!! AND You WOKE ME UP
!!! Here I was getting a little drowsy and getting ready to go to bed. So much for that
. At least not in the same frame of mind! Funny how contagious enthusiasm is, eh
? Anyway, I feel so honoured
by such a call
[as to come] and such reactions
[that I am]!!!
Well... I feel EXACTLY the same way about seeing you, Mary! So There!!
If only I could be in both places with you, but you know... choices... and when it came to that one, San Jose got it hands down. I'm not much of a Vegas person, but as I said to a friend...
"[even though I potentially could've paid for my trip via a slot machine]... Vegas is just not my kind of thing. Leonard will be bringing the finest kind of spirituality to its unhallowed ground."
Another thing I said about San Jose is "I'm expecting it to be a magnificent concert. The energy will be very high."
As I also said to my same friend: Leonard is an expensive habit... and...
I would've liked to have gone to Nashville and New York, but geez-oh-Pete... I do not have even this kind of money, much less that kind of money. I refuse to envision myself homeless and on the street... but if I did end up there, I'd be sure to have a placard around my neck saying "Too Many Leonard Cohen Concerts."
Leonard graciously left space for us to sing in "I'm Your Man" in Tampa... oh, how I hope he will in San Jose. And if he does "Passing Through," how could we NOT sing our hearts out to him on THAT one
!?! Those of us sentient beings so fortunate as to reside in this segment of time on earth and share his space for even moments during our lifetime. We are the lucky ones.
