Re: Dick Straub has passed away

I am so sorry to hear this terrible news. Dick was always so kind and welcoming, and from our first meeting at the NYC Event in 2004 made me feel like I had always been part of our little community. It was thanks to Dick for (I think literally) grabbing me by the arm and introducing me to Esther Coh...

Re: THE FLAME: FOREWORD by Adam Cohen

This is beautifully written. I am especially taken by this passage: he wished that he had more completely stayed steadfast to the recognition that writing was his only solace, his truest purpose. I find it remarkable that Leonard Cohen, who has left a body of work in the English language that stands...

What do you guys think about Celine Dion?
For her is it a home coming.
For her it would be a homecoming.
For me it would be a bathroom break.

Have we all missed the real clue ? "....as those have been nailed."

Dan, it's clear you have hit upon something! It's a bit too late for Leonard to have risen on the third day, but it's the right time for his reincarnated life to begin!

Re: Like a Drunk in a Midnight Choir - Record Store Day 2017 vinyl

Hi Rand, I have a question for you. How did you get Terry Reid for this project? I've seen that he's out playing again but he must be a hard guy to pin down.

Otherwise, thank you VERY much for doing this tribute to our man!

Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

My letter today to the NY Times, I know the odds of publishing are astronomical but one never knows: Dear Sir or Madam, It was with mixed feelings that I read the article "Why Bob Dylan Shouldn't Have Gotten a Nobel" by Anna North in your October 13, 2016 edition. My initial reaction was satisfactio...

Re: "So long, Marianne. Leonard Cohen's final letter to his muse"

David, you are not alone, I was alarmed by it too. The only potential consolations I can think of, is that "very soon" is a relative term that can have a wide range of meaning; also, I'm sure Leonard meant to comfort Marianne by saying that they will soon be together again. So those thoughts might ...

Re: "Book of Mercy" in Hebrew - translated by Doron

Congratulations Doron! I remember the thread here in the forum with fondness, it was an amazing discussion that I never had the intellectual weight to contribute to. It was like sitting in on a lecture being taught by and to a room of geniuses, with me watching it in amazement wishing that I could b...

Re: Sadly, Judith Fitzgerald Has Passed Away

It is very sad for me to hear this news. I was in my mid 40's and finally writing with some frequency and some (say) skill, and here in the Forum Judith was my most dedicated and fierce supporter. Having someone at her level critique and compliment my writing was not only a compliment but the greate...

Re: Multiple identities

No, this would be a very watered-down version of those days, actually... everything John mentioned would have to happen on the same day, and it would go from there with a whole lot more. I should have added something like "and now John K. summarizes everything in a snarky manner" to my last post, '...
