well, though it may not be visible, i can assure you that he has a big cushion supporting his spine ;-) That's a relief (for both me and him!). i have been meaning to attempt a flower or two, having been greatly inspired by your wonderful daisy - but haven't yet managed to get that far. I am glad t...

Re: never-ending gallery

why stand when one can sit? Your friend is going to have back problems, sitting in that sort of chair in that sort of position. I hope he doesn't do that too often. It makes my back hurt just looking at it. Nice sketches, though. I like the smiling Leonards -- the second one (in blue/grey) appears ...

A beautiful and haunting interview with Adam Cohen on the making of "Thanks for the Dance" and so much more - by Yehuda Nuriel in Israel's Yediot Aharonot...

Thank you for this wonderful interview!

Re: From the New Yorker, “Leonard Cohen and the Divine Voice”

Thank you for this link (it does work). I have just listened to it, and it was beautiful to hear Leonard's voice as he discussed and reflected on things in his deep and thoughtful way. But it was very sad, too, particularly because of when the interview took place, and what we now know to be true. I...

Re: never-ending gallery

...as the old adage says: a goose looks fine until it stands by a peacock... Not all old adages are true, and I do not buy into that one: the beauty of one particular thing should not been seen as diminishing the beauty of another thing -- both can be as beautiful as can be, in their own way and by...

As far as I'm concerned, any new album by Montreal's legendary beloved poet & songwriter, Leonard Cohen,
is a welcome gift. ...
listening to Leonard Cohen makes life worth living !!!

Absolutely -- I'm with you, Brucester!

Re: never-ending gallery

Thanks, Geoffrey -- high praise, indeed, from one as talented as yourself! :D But, you may overestimate me a little bit with your latter remark (thank you, nonetheless -- very kind of you to say!).

Is that a challenge? Okay, maybe just this once, so that you don't have to shoulder all the burden around here, all the time! Here's a daisy I did in watercolours. Hope you like it.

Re: Posthumous album

...Lisa, If you can avoid watching the video that’s fine, but I find it hard to do, especially when it is promoted all over the place and being sent to me by various friends and well-wishers (perhaps I need a better discipline)... I just close my eyes and listen! Works every time! How nice that peo...

Re: never-ending gallery

I suspect, Geoffrey, that there are one or two wannabe-artists out there who would give anything to be able to produce something like your "perfect example of uninspired rubbish" . 8) Thanks for the heads-up on the video -- I will check it out soon (plus the other one!). In a bit of a rush at the mo...

Re: never-ending gallery

... french song under the pic (leonard really hits those low notes). have a nice day everyone. :-)... Leonard can, indeed, hit those low notes, but the video link you provided is "private" and thus "unavailable".

Re: Posthumous album

...The new album will not be “by Leonard Cohen” in the strict sense of the word... So, while I’ll no doubt be thrilled to hear these new creations, I will always have to place an asterisk next to the album’s title... Anyone familiar with Leonard Cohen and his work -- as well as his work ethic -- wi...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Awesome! "Happens to the Heart" is so beautiful, the words and the music so perfectly intertwined, so absolutely "Leonard". Fantastic!

Now, I really can hardly wait to hear the whole album! Four more weeks....
