Dear Mr. Cohen,

Happy birthday, happy New Year, happy ever after in the market place, sunshine on your shoulder makes you happy, just happy to be here, happiness is sometimes hard to find, I just can't be happy, Love, unless you're happy too, and I was so happy and everybody "what is this! what is this!..." it's just um, beautiful: your own room, in your own home.

With Love,

Dear Mr. Cohen,

It’s too late to wish you a Happy Birthday now, but I’d still like to contribute to this thread personally. So I wish you a Happy Year – and may every day brings love and the light of wisdom into your life.

I’m very glad that my friend Elizabeth congratulated you on my behalf in time. I was in hospital, and wasn’t able to do that myself. It’s great when there’re friends who always remember of you, and even help you to communicate with the outer world when your own abilities are a bit scanty!

… And I wish you to spend a lot of happy days with your good friends this year, as well :) !


Elizabeth, thank you very very much for your care and constant support :) !

Dear Jarkko,

Please tell Leonard that he is welcome to visit "cosa piccola nostra",
'our little community', any time at all, provided he doesn't spam.

I doubt that he could ever be a regular member though.
His posts to this forum so far, which are apparently none,
show no insight whatsoever into any one of the many songs
and poems and books that are the very heart and head
and liver and navel-lint of this place.

Making the flowers is the easy part, and a fit occupation
for one such as himself. But then it's us bees and
grubs and phallic hummingbirds that do all the heavy lifting.

Mr Cohen clearly has no idea what he'll be doing next.
So he should visit often to find out.
