Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

...even though I spat the dummy recently because that horrendous episode was so fresh in my mind doesn’t really mean that I won’t stop attempting to get over my anxiety... "Spat the dummy" eh? I had to Google that one! :D Although it may have been in the Australian slang link that I believe Alan sh...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

B4- So good to hear from you, as always! I truly hate flying and that most definitely confirmed it! I said to the poor lady in the seat beside me, “That’s it! I don’t think I’ll ever do this again!!” Is this your way of telling me that I will not get to meet you in Hydra next June? You said that you...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

ah Vickie, it’s always my pleasure to be of some help! ... B4- I hope it is truly of pleasure like you say. I have learned so much through you and the others on this site, that I feel I am greedy sometimes. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond! I read your post the day you sent it, and shared i...

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

Thank you Jarkko for posting this link to Adam's interview. I have only had chance to hear part of it on my lunch hour, but I look forward to hearing the rest and just wanted to say thanks!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

B4, Thank you so much for your reply. I shared it with Dave. He is more of a music guy and not so much for the poetry, but since he knows you from our other thread, it helps me give credibility to Leonard's poetry. ;-) Poetry is so pure... you either like poetry for the poetry's sake or you don't. L...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Well… Thankfully, I didn’t pay too much for my copy of The Energy of Slaves, because it has suffered from travelling with me. It has been stuffed into the bottom of the tote bag I carry to work and back (along with the Oregon Driver’s Manual which I am supposed to be studying instead). It has been t...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

PS- Regarding Beautiful Losers: When I lived in Idaho, I felt that I was the only Leonard Cohen fan alive, because every time I brought him up, people were like, "Leonard who??" (True, he was already gone when I first discovered him, so I probably missed the boat) But after finding the forum, I real...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Hi 4! Sorry I haven't responded for so long. No other excuse but that we are still reeling from our 2 moves and new jobs. In fact, we are just now in the middle of (aka: arguing about) building a shelter for our donkeys before the rains come. Thank you for bringing up the wine on the tablecloth agai...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

At last. I finally had the chance to finish reading Beautiful Losers while coming back from picking up our donkeys in Idaho to bring them home to Oregon. The 7-hour trip was uneventful except for my worrying whether the donkeys were hot, hungry, thirsty, scared, car sick, or worse- had somehow burst...

Rufus Wainwright All These Poses Anniversary Tour 2018

So, now I am dragging Dave to see Rufus Wainwright at the Aladdin Theater in Portland on Nov 12, 2018, and it's not even going to be a weekend! Is there no end to what that man will put up with from me? :D Just kidding, I think he will like it! Is anyone else here going to any of the performances on...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Don't be sorry B4! You have been so generous in what you have shared, with links and lyrics already, and besides, I am still new to Leonard. With what he has “officially” recorded and published, I have plenty on my plate already! Maybe when I look for more, the links will be working again, lol. We a...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

B4- Thank you for the links! Now that we have normal internet, limited only by speed, I feel like the proverbial kid in a candy store. In fact, just last night, I found out that we can access YouTube on our television now and watch it on the "big screen". I know that sounds as if I am coming from th...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Jean and B4- I am not too proud to admit that I was hoping I would hear from you. Thank you Jean for letting me know that I was understood. And B4- I didn't see this warning at first: If you're not ready for Book of Longing yet don't listen, but he does talk about Beautiful Losers :) I was very intr...
