Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Theo Dorgan, eminent Irish poet, gave a lecture at my university shortly after Leonard Cohen's death, and he related a lovely little anecdote here about some email correspondence, which may be of interest (the main theme of the lecture was Seamus Heaney)

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

At http://twitter.com/@DenisCoderre, the mayor of Montreal I think, there are various postings and a short video showing prayers being said for Leonard Cohen at the Wailing Wall, Jerusalem.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

At https://twitter.com/PoetCorey is a photo of Leonard with Kezban Ozcan, sourced from her, that I had not myself seen before, perhaps I just missed it. It brings to my mind that I think some tribute should be paid to her for being such a great assistant over the recent years and right through I gue...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

You will be able to access this on the Internet, I think. A perfect cameo, from one poet to another, of what Leonard meant to so many... Many thanks for this, listening now, Sam Hunt is on at the start of it, the URL is: http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/nat-music/audio/201823576/leonard...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Cannot vouch for accuracy but Glen Hansard posted this on twitter.. "Leonard died in his sleep last Monday.. After an evening of writing new poems, It's a comfort to know that.." I hope it is so, it distressed me to see his physical decline and I think he truly experienced the cruelty as well as the...

Re: Cost of "You want it darker" on Amazon.co.uk

I am sure just a blip, I pre-ordered from Amazon UK about 10 days ago and it was 11.82 at that time.

Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

I too think this could be an annual thing on a smaller scale. Perhaps if the fund supports 2 or 3 local things this time along with the bench, the fund could be re-opened every year for the month before Sept 21 to gather top up funds and support a couple more things each year, the same ones or new n...

This thread inspired me to shop around, well worth doing. I pre-ordered yesterday from WOW HD for €8.49, free delivery in Ireland, today they have it at €9.99, so that must have been time limited offer. Not used before, we will see...
