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 ...

Re: The like real reason Geoffrey and I like fell out

I'm sure that's not true, the world is full of fishes. are we calling G. uncle Geoffrey now? that seems a little to familiar. (that's as best a pun as I can do)

(I just googled skate fish - like it)

Re: The Infinite Haiku

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. However it is mispronounced by a poorly educated "Cate" even she will know its original Canadian meaning - "shall we meet at 2.30 on Wednesday afterno...

Re: Somewhere A Lost City (A Poem)

Thanks for the link Jason.
I liked your poem, it felt like a slice of New York/ moments of New York. I also liked a translation that you had on the site, "This I Dreampt, and This I Dream"

Re: Important Announcement in August

Should not have long to wait now - my guess is a poetry book rather than cd. My wish though would be a cd of Leonard reading his poems himself. I'm not a facebook fan but I wish we had a like button. I hope your wish comes true. I'd also like a new book of poems or a collection of various thoughts,...
