Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi 4! For me, I don't care what songs are on it, as long as they are Leonard's. :) If Adam is in charge of it, I am sure it will be great. I like him a lot and Leonard trusted him. So, I want to go back to Hydra for a moment (actually I want to go back to Hydra for forever, lol!), but I want to talk...

November! The month I will see my first grandchild and now another set of Leonard songs I have not yet heard yet!
I am overjoyed! :D

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

I too am looking forward to this movie (an understatement in the least)! In addition to seeing the story between the characters acted out, I hope it will be filmed on location. Now that we have been there, I would love to see a film of the places we have been. Please keep us posted on the progress r...

Happy Birthday Bev! :D
Alan is right, we will all be thinking of you next week! You will be there with us as far as I am concerned.

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

Paul, Thank you very much! We are arriving a bit later than the other 'Cohen-ites', so your directions are definitely a good start! They will help us find things after the others leave if we end up missing any sights. I am especially happy to hear that many of the landmarks have not changed much. We...

...We did at one point consider having a map pinpointing some of the places written about.... Any chance you could make that available to those of us going to Hydra in June? They say it never hurts to ask, so I am hoping I am not asking for too much. I would appreciate even a partial list... ;-) Th...

Re: Packing help please? Hydra meetup/Europe

Thank you both! I did already check with all airlines on size restrictions, but haven't checked all of their restrictions for liquids. Will do! I wasn't planning on bringing anything waterproof, so I need to give that some thought. Living in the Northwest, rain is a familiar companion, and clothing ...

Packing help please? Hydra meetup/Europe

Hello! I am writing to ask for help with practicalities of what to pack when we come to the meetup in June. We need to travel light because we are taking carryon luggage only and our modest accommodations in Hydra are several steps up from the harbor! Also, we will be taking a couple flights in Euro...

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

I have also just finished this book and loved it! Although it is not about Leonard as much as we may like ;-) , it is very interesting and even eye opening. I definitely recommend it, especially for anyone going to Hydra. While reading Half the Perfect World, I felt lost inside Hydra in the 60s, and...

Re: LC's Favourite Books

Oh no! More stuff to read! :shock:

What I mean to say is Thank You! ;-) Eventually I will be done reading what Leonard himself wrote and will be done researching for our trip to Hydra (and other spots) and will be looking for more!

Re: Lorca's Poet in New York

B4 and Jean, I can't tell you both how much I loved reading your translations. I don't know if saying that I like them better than the translations in my book would be fair to that translator, but I can say that they added so much to my appreciation of Lorca's poetry I also appreciated your explanat...

Re: Lorca's Poet in New York

Thank you both Jean and Bev! It is no surprise to me that Leonard liked Lorca so much and likewise no surprise that you both are commenting on this thread. Jean...I love seeing the different interpretations of his words. I understand that they are supposed to be translations not interpretations, but...

Re: Lorca's Poet in New York

Ah... Tower of Babel! To have no need for translation and to all speak the same language! How annoying and interesting that there are so many ways to translate a poem... as if the myriad of individual interpretations within the same language are not enough! Thank you for your translation of Little V...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi everyone! I was able to finish reading Lorca's Poet in New York today! We had a snow day from school, so I didn't have to go to work. It was a perfect way to spend my day. I also had time to write what I thought of it, but I didn't post it on this thread because I wasn't sure if Jarkko would be o...
