Re: Waiting For The News To Come

The reaction on the forum after your announcement has left me feeling appalled that those who profess to love Leonard so deeply will not honor his life by graciously letting him go "gently into that good night." I have found it hard to understand why, after all he has given them of his soul, they c...

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

For the sake of feedback, I am sorry but I have to say that I find this offering rather disappointing. If items could be ordered separately, I might order a couple of them, but there are too many items in this boxset that would sit around serving no purpose at all, so it would just be wasteful to or...

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

Ten is a good number anyways. In 2001 we had Ten New Songs, the Grand Tour was prolonged until 2010, there's the Ten Commandments, there's the ten Sephirot ... Well said, Dennis! And let us not forget the Ten Days of Awe (between Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur, which is said to be the Holiest time of y...

Re: Linda Sturgess has passed away

This is terrible, shocking news!! I remember Linda's dedication in making all those wonderful, tour-related posts, as well as her exuberance & warmth, which always came through in her posts. Although I didn't meet her in person, I will always remember her.

Condolences to Linda's family & friends.

Re: Leonard and Corona

I keep thinking of these lines from Gypsy Wife: "...this is the darkness/ this is the flood/ and there is no man or woman can't be touched..." And from The Flood: "The flood it is gathering/ Soon it will move/ Across every valley/ Against every roof..." How very prescient of Leonard, as always. But ...

My Messiah

In the song, Happens to the Heart, Leonard wrote this line: "It failed my little fire". It makes me sad that Leonard would think such a thing, so I wrote this response to that line: My Messiah I shall call you my messiah It did not fail, your holy fire Your flame, it resurrected me and saved me from...

Re: Holiday Wishes 2019

Dear Jarkko & Eija, Thank you for the very striking, gorgeous photo! I am so sorry to hear that Eija is ill. I remember when I met both of you for the first time, in Las Vegas in 2010, & I was struck by Eija's beautiful, warm, penetrating eyes, & the lovely intensity of that photo reminds me of her ...

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

I thought I did delete the entire review, so I am at a loss as how this apparently did not happen. Is it still there? I see three dots. When I made my previous post, it was still there, but I see that now it has been deleted. Thank you very much, Hal E. Lujah, it was very considerate of you to foll...

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

Wish I hadn't posted it. Why don't you delete it, then? IMO, it's not worthy of the space it's occupying here, & though I can only speak for myself, I would venture to say that most people here are likely to agree. I read a couple of lines, & decided it wasn't worth my time or energy. You can just ...
