Re: Suicide?

I don't know if I am misreading this, or if something came out which I don't know about. I very much doubt this report. It is disconcerting to see this written at all. Many will read this and take it as the case, which is truly sad. No way LC would do that. Maybe I should call for a retraction.

Suicide?

Hi, all. I just read this idiocy in the NYTimes. Some author wrote that L. Cohen committed suicide, as I quote below: "Of course, if a suicide follows a completed work, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the work was made as a ‘‘final work,’’ in the way of ‘‘You Want It Darker.’’ Not all suicides ar...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Thanks to all for your thoughtful, heartfelt comments. I have listened to the last work of LC non-stop all day for many days. It is all the more tragically touching to hear this man's final statements, so authentically. He is indeed a scholar of the soul, and always has been. I wish that the world w...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

There will never be another one like him. And a true gentleman. It is almost unbearable. I had hoped to have been able to have said a few words to him before he passed. If you are there, Leonard, please remember to look for me wherever you are.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Can anyone confirm that the death was caused by a fall, a blow to the head, and that he died in his sleep?

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

I just finished reading all the sad posts about the demise, partly to convince myself it was true. I am glad he got to finish his final album: well done. He showed us how to live and how to die. He will never be forgotten, when all the rest are in the ash heap. He will last longer and burn brighter....

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I was late to hear this; got it this morning. One of the greatest honors of my life was meeting Leonard Cohen. He said, choosing his words carefully as was his custom, that I had made "the perfect use" of his lyrics, and he surprised me when he said maybe both of us would go to G-d in this life. I h...

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

I just saw the terrible news in the NY Times. I am truly stunned. I had hoped the great man, Leonard Cohen, would have had a good year left in him. I am devastated. I received a horrifying diagnosis around this same time; if he died on Thursday, that would be my birthday, of all coincidences. My con...

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

Wow. I am sorry to read your tale, and you are right; we don't actually know who will drop first. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

Thanks, Jarkko. I read the New Yorker article last night and am saddened greatly. I know he is in pain. I pray for his health, both physically and spiritually. I was touched by Dylan's high appraisal of aspects of Mr. Cohen's work that I am too obtuse to notice, such as the beauty of the melodies an...

Re: Leonard Cohen's health

I dearly hope it was meant as a consoling figure of speech. Truth is nobody knows when the time will come, yes? The thought of losing Leonard is indeed dark. We know some day it must happen. I hope not anytime soon. Let us properly value him while he is still here among us, lighting the way. I had n...

Leonard Cohen's health

Dear forumites,
Does anyone know the state of his health? I am very concerned about the letter he penned for Marianne.
