Oh, Andrea, these are splendid. Thank you. Seeing Leonard in tears this way you see so clearly how his heart and his work are intertwined and in immersion with one another. The 5th photo has Leonard with an expression on his face that I've never seen. It's wonderful. It's so gratifying to see him continue to be openly and officially recognized and appreciated. He has devoted his life.

Still in Oviedo (awards ceremony tomorrow). the city is full of L Cohen events. Paint exhibits, poetry and tribute concerts all during the day.
We have tons of pics to load. I'll try to do it on Saturday.
He looks in a very good shape. Charming and kind with everyone that want to aproach him, giving excuses when the event organisers make him leave.
The best is still to come. He will pronounce a speech during the ceremony.
Remember you will have all the ceremony online (fpa)

Behind him, will address the Canadian poet and musician Leonard Cohen , which this year has been awarded the Prince of Asturias Award for Letters.
