Happy Birhtday Leonard,

We'll celebrate in Amsterdam!
Sail on, sail on
O mighty Ship of State!
To the Shores of Need
Past the Reefs of Greed
Through the Squalls of Hate

Happy Birthday, Leonard! :D

Hope you have a rewarding day however you choose to spend it. I'll also be raising a drink to you on Saturday, with whoever cares to join me. ;-)

We're looking forward to seeing you again "down under" in a couple of months time, too! 8) :D

Andrew :)

Happy Birthday to you, Leonard Cohen. I can't explain in words what your poems and music mean te me. But let me put it this way: 'You are my man" I wish for you to have a wonderful birthday night in Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam!
And I feel very very very sad not to be there in person, but my heart is.
I didn´t kill myself when things went wrong
I didn´t turn to drugs or teaching
I tried to sleep, but when I couldn´t sleep
I learned to write.
I learned to write what might be read
on nights like this by one like me.

(Leonard Cohen)

Leonard, I wish you the happiest of birthdays, and hope that you are experiencing as much joy and wonder as you have shined on us.

You are only one year away from having that cigarette.

I finally purchased a hat--black fedora--and will wear it on the day in honour of 'our man'.
79 and going strong! May you stay forever young---I know that is Bob--but still
Best wishes to you Mr. Leonard Cohen. Hope you do something crazy fun to celebrate.
