Re: Thank you, Amsterdam 2016.

A big thank you to Willy, Wybe & Liesbeth for all your hard work & dedication - well done!! All the events were excellently planned & executed. Like Leslie, this was the first event I attended because I was always saving my travelling money & energy for concerts. For months, I felt rather conflicted...

Re: "So long, Marianne. Leonard Cohen's final letter to his muse"

David, you are not alone, I was alarmed by it too. The only potential consolations I can think of, is that "very soon" is a relative term that can have a wide range of meaning; also, I'm sure Leonard meant to comfort Marianne by saying that they will soon be together again. So those thoughts might s...

Re: Like A Psalm

Hi, I've been thinking, & what I said about a psalm being "a prayer that's meant to be sung", is not true, in that a psalm is not a prayer. They sometimes have elements of prayer, but a prayer is designed to ask God for something, & the psalms are more than that. Psalms are often called "songs of pr...

Re: Like A Psalm

Hi Steven, First of all, good point - I agree that Leonard's song is more of a psalm than a prayer, mainly because he wrote it as a song, with the intention of singing it, & a psalm is essentially a prayer that is meant to be sung :razz: . And personally, I would love to hear the psalms in their ori...

Re: Sad news: Marianne Ihlen dies

This is really heartbreaking news. Leonard brought Marianne into our lives & hearts through his incredibly beautiful & moving song, & she will live there forever; but even though I never met Marianne, it feels like a part of my heart has been suddenly torn away by the loss, & I can't bear to think h...

Re: Happy Father's Day from Leonard

I'm not a father, but what a wonderful photo!! It made me smile, & smile again. Adam & Lorca are very fortunate souls to have Mr. Leonard Cohen for a father. Thank you to Leonard for sharing the photo, & to Jarkko for posting. I love it. And Happy Father's Day, Leonard Cohen!! I hope you enjoy a del...

Re: Looking for an axplanation for "Seems so long ago Nancy

Leonard has offered an explanation. In one interview, I remember Leonard saying, "If Nancy was born a decade later, she would have been the coolest kid on the block". And in Leonard's intro to the song at the 1970 IOW concert, he said to the audience, about Nancy, ". . .she was right where you are n...

Re: Designs for Songs & Versions

I'm going to additionally incorporate the hands and that early portrait plus some of my other artworks of Leonard chronologically throughout the pages of verse. I'll probably use that last design cover or something similar as it shows the “as time goes by" theme more graphically and with feeling on...

Re: Designs for Songs & Versions

Wow, Bev!! Those covers for the book are all absolutely gorgeous!! I especially love the last one, with the two Leonards & the open-ended title, which might serve the purpose very well; though I love your painting with the hands, too, so maybe you can include that somewhere in the book as well; & ho...
