.. Leonard.. (my love).. I thought it time I put in a word here on this thread.. (even though it’s somewhat out of my comfort zone) (and even my comfort zone gets uncomfortable at times, so).. anyway, most of us here are counting on you to keep going at least ‘til you hit ninety-seven.. if not a hundred and seven.. if not a hundred and twenty-seven.. so.. keep eating your vegetables, and doing that esoteric/mystical sort of stuff [that the more discerning of us know you do] [we’re on to you, in other words].. and just know you have this violet flower here, sending you her love and devotion.. and adoration.. probably on a 24/7 basis.. [though one can’t always account for one’s dreams, although, even on that basis, you have little to worry about] [or maybe a lot to worry about]..

.. anyway, I love and adore you.. and I hope you have the happiest happiest birthday this year!..

ever yours,

Many happy returns. 77. That's a good age, biblical or otherwise.

Funnily enough I walked past a youthful image of you painted banksy like on the wall of my local park yesterday. That was a surprise to see. Sometimes you get around as a passenger of other peoples love and admiration.

Dear Leonard Cohen,
On the occasion of your 77th birthday, may I offer three cheers to the birthday child and best wishes for this day spent surrounded by family and others close to your heart -- and for happiness, always.
For all the pleasure, contemplation, titillation, vicarious abandon, and solace your work has give to so many for so many years, you have surely earned that your wishes be fulfilled, on your birthday and the years to come…till 120.
Happy Birthday, dear Leonard…

Dear Leonard,
May your birthday be as sweet as apples dipped in honey, as romantic as autumn rain on a river bank, as peaceful as the International Day of peace should be, and as joyful as the joy you bring to so many, so often, in so many ways, some obvious, some obscure, some paradoxical. I have a feeling this might both touch and amuse you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aia7pCh1LBI
Many blessings
