Have we all missed the real clue ? "....as those have been nailed."

Dan, it's clear you have hit upon something! It's a bit too late for Leonard to have risen on the third day, but it's the right time for his reincarnated life to begin!

Should not have long to wait now - my guess is a poetry book rather than cd.
My wish though would be a cd of Leonard reading his poems himself.

I'll bet that it is not a product (book or album) at all.

I'm more inclined to think that something will happen either on his birthday in September or on the anniversary of his death in November.

I'm not a facebook fan but I wish we had a like button. I hope your wish comes true.

I'd also like a new book of poems or a collection of various thoughts, letters, scribblings, poems. At the Thomas Fisher library there was a not to be opened until after my death box (I believe) ... perhaps there was something waiting?

I would dearly like a cd of poems read by Leonard Cohen.
And besides that, I would dearly like everything that is an expression of his soul.

I just hope that it will be something for the many, not just something for the few . . .

I’ve been pondering on the message Jarkko wrote and the longer I think of it the more I feel that it will not be an announcement on a new book, cd etc.
For a modest man like Jarkko to use the words “very important announcement” it feels that there will be a very drastic change of some kind that will effect the whole LC community as we know it.
Geoffrey suggested that the forum as we know it might be closed, I dearly hope not but were I at first discarded this idea as “not going to happen” I now no longer do.
Time will tell, lets hope that my thoughts are only shadows chasing me.

Don't worry friends, you can't get rid of me so easily!

I have NO plans to close or change the websites.

Our Events, Hydra Meet-ups and Walking Weekends continue according to the plans. This Fall we have the Balaton Walking Weekend (according to Szilvia, there is room for one or two more participants...). The Budapest Event in August 2018. Next Hydra Meet-up in June 2019.

Something very special will be announced. In fact some posts in this thread are on the right track.

A little patience, and we will get the official press release.
Then we have to practice patience a bit longer before some other ideas mentioned in this thread will be carried out.

Thanks for giving me a laugh-out-loud moment.
You are, indeed, VERY prepared.

Okudzhava ~ I'm at the library and almost hit the screen to get rid of the bug... and then realized.
Tribute concerts in general may not measure up... however, for me, one with members of Leonard's band definitely would!
