WoW ~ Thank you SO MUCH, brightnow :D !! When I saw your name here, I thought you might be going, too :D 8) :D ... :( ... but your good wishes still mean so much :D ! And I've taken on the physical aspect of your screen name now. It felt wrong to me, too. I don't care how many times more Leonard tours... missing his last one of this tour just felt, as you've said, plain wrong.

Oh, thank you and THANK YOU, Mutti!! It feels more complete for me, too... but don't think, with this group of attendees, that I didn't double-check to make sure it was an indoor venue ;-) ! Lightning twice and all that... I cannot afford to fly all that way for a delay :lol: .

Yes, I wish Greg and Kelsey were coming, too! And Pan Cogito... though, I see he's at least going to be in Las Vegas.

WoW, MARY :D !!! THANKS!!! Talk about making someone FEEL GOOD 8) !! AND You WOKE ME UP :lol: !!! Here I was getting a little drowsy and getting ready to go to bed. So much for that :lol: . At least not in the same frame of mind! Funny how contagious enthusiasm is, eh ;-) ? Anyway, I feel so honoured and grateful by such a call 8) 8) [as to come] and such reactions :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: [that I am]!!!

Well... I feel EXACTLY the same way about seeing you, Mary! So There!! :lol: 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 8) !?! 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.


Love,
Lizzy

Lizzy, I'm SOOOOO happy to see that you are coming to San Jose!! As others have said, it just wouldn't have been the same without you! :D :D :D

Oh, thank you SO MUCH, Mary. I am so happy I'll be seeing and spending a little bit of time with you, too :D . Of course, I feel it wouldn't be the same without me, too... but from the OPPOSITE perspective ~ ALL the people whom I've met and love being there, and my not being able to share in their joy... and Leonard's very last 2009 concert... where the energy will be so blissfully high... and my not being able to experience it with all of you! It's really humbling to see these reactions. I have to tell you, I'm kinda just blown away by it. You people have actually met me ;-) , so it means even more [and there's a history that goes with that comment :? ~ me and my social anxiety/phobia do not always fare so well on that measure and you have made my struggle easier... thanks]. Believe me, I am deeply grateful that anyone is glad I'll be there with you 8) . I'm very grateful :) .

Now, enough of confessions :roll: ... back to the concert 8) ... this one is going to be sublime, scrumptious, and divine. I am SO glad I will not be left with only the words of others to know it.


Love,
Lizzy

Well, I did it and boyyyyyyyyyy did I do it. Secured my plane ticket this morning.

Leave out of Jacksonville at 6:15 AM on Friday the 13th [oh my, just noticed that for the first time :shock: ], which actually means getting up at about 2 AM, so I can rush out the door and get on the road for the 2-hour drive to JAX, so as to be there 2 hrs prior to flight time.

After a changeover in Houston, I end up in San Jose at approx. 12 Noon on Friday.

Go to the concert that night... stay up all night :shock: because... I need to be at the San Jose airport 2 hours prior to the 6:15 AM flight on Saturday the 14th, to come back home.

Arrive in JAX about 5:00 PM on Saturday, for a 2-hour drive back home. That's somewhere in the area of 36 hours after I left.

If I look dragged out, don't be surprized. Not much sleep happening on this trip :shock: .

On the positive side, it's worth it all :D . Just point me in the right direction.

I am so happy to see that you will be in San Jose Lizzie, but sad about Las Vegas... to quote another favorite of mine "you can't always get what you want..." there will be much mutual transfer of energies in LV however, and I'll send you some of mine via our new mutual friends. That beer will still happen ... some day!

I KNOW it, Jazz... can you BELIEVE IT!?! So near, yet so bloody far!!! I considered flying into San Fran, but the 'deals' would only get me back out of there the next day at 12:45 AM ~ AM!!! ~ I wouldn't even be able to see the entire concert, for trying to get to the shuttle to take me back to the SF Airport in time to fly back out!

Well, I got a pretty good deal on the flight at $333.00 RT and that includes the $16 trip insurance [Red Rocks made me a believer in it]. Anyway, my point on the good deal is that some day it's feasible I could come for just that beer! When I saw you were coming to LV, I thought why not SJ, too??

Thanks for passing along your great energies through Mary and Diana and Mary and all the rest. And Jarkko and Eija, too 8) !! I'm over the moon about that!

Enjoy Las Vegas and I'll enjoy San Jose :D . I'm glad you're able to go :D .


Love,
Lizzy

i am gobsmacked, in the irish vernacular, to hear you are coming, lizzy. just speechless and elated and just now reading the news, it even evinced tears. it just would not be the same without you there. i have been thinking about you and praying you'd make it for weeks and weeks. how absolutely wonderful. to be there with you and mary and mary and george and marsha and vlasta (coming all the way from st. petersburg, russia!!!) and all the other wonderful cohenites, it's just too wonderful to contemplate. and my friend philippe is coming all the way from lyon, france, where i met him at the first of my 17 concerts, summer of 2008!

i'm going to have to take tranquilizers just to get through those two days!!!

i can't wait to see you again, lizzy!!!

what a time we are gonna have.

Haha... better make it quick. I got a plane to catch :lol: .

Seriously, though, Bonnie... I am SO glad... at least AS GLAD... if not GLADDER STILL that I'll be seeing YOU 8) [and, always in the same breath, Denise :D ]. Thank You for your prayers, Bonnie... I didn't even bother, I felt it was just too impossible.

WoW. Look at that list of people coming! And how exciting for you that you'll see Philippe from so many concerts ago... and Vlasta coming from St. Petersburg!?! I wish he'd load up my dear friend Tatiana! I am ~ as you know ~ so happy for you with all the concerts you've attended, Bonnie. So fitting and such a given that you should be at the ending one for 2009! Talk about its being just wrong for someone not to be there! YOU would've been the title taker for that one! But, so glad you don't need to be and that I actually get to see and spend some time with you, again. I'm delighted :D !!!

"Gobsmacked" is Irish? I thought it was English :shock: . Hardly matters... could you even find a more expressive word :lol: ?

!YaY!

[Now it's time for bed... I'm exhausted!]


Love,
Lizzy

He,he, Bonnie, I am in need of some tranquilizers already and will be for next 14 or so days. Maybe we should ask wise man himself? :shock: I remember him giving some advice on this subject during summer and fall 2008 :lol:
And now I know exactly why I am going to San Jose! Forget Leonard - I am going to meet Lizzy!!! :lol:

See - tranquilizers needed!
