Re: The Master Song

Hi Mat, are you doing well? Is Australia locked down? What a crazy event that we all seem to be participants in. nope, not on the front lines unless Covid 19 starts to access computers and phones. We were told about 2 weeks ago to stop any non-emergency community visits/home visits. It's a very stra...

And the people stayed home

And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. ...

Re: Leonard and Corona

Thank you for posting this and for your good wishes for us Hugo. I created the Hallelujah version ;-) I'm not responsible for this one though. When I saw this one I thought of the lyrics to Hallelujah! ... It feels like the calm before the storm here. I have lots of toilet paper, that should be a co...

Re: allow me to litter this forum one last time

It's shocking to see how a Leonard Cohen fan can get snatched like that and carted off to a beautiful Scandinavian country ... what on earth is this world coming to. :neutral:

Re: the smoky life

I wonder what Leonard is thinking about in this. Geoffrey, did Leonard ever smoke a pipe? (the tobacco kind) Does anybody else miss cigarettes terribly? ... Then, there are the people who smoke(d) cigarettes! Kissing someone who smokes cigarettes provides the sensation of licking an ashtray (again, ...

Re: First Nations women

I find this interesting article. https://thewalrus.ca/the-darker-side-of-leonard-cohen/ which deserves many other comments reliated to other subjects pointed in this paper. But for now I would like to concentrate on only one : What is in the book is a symbol of what did happen to the First Nations....

Re: Who will appear in the tribute concert?

My guesses would be the first 3 that Mary has mentioned plus Serena Ryder and Coeur de pirate. Maybe Steven Paige.

Perhaps there will be some readings as well.

Re: Meaning of: "And no one that you hurt could ever heal"?

Hi Gisa, I think that this is my favourite line in the song, maybe my favourite on the whole album. To me, what I feel when I listen, is that I am the violator. How horrible would it be if when we hurt other people, that they would stay hurt forever. What a dark and cold thought. The line is also a ...

hummmm . .. I'm still not quite sure about your syllable count but since two of you agree that it's only seven syllables I'll take your word for it.
