Leonard and Anjani in Warsaw.

Post by Unspoken Words » Mon Apr 02, 2007 12:51 am

I have just returned from Warsaw. It was a magical experience.

To see Leonard walk on the stage was spine tingling and brought tears to my eyes. His introduction, words on Polands advance since his last visit and reading of poetry was masterful. Anjani and the musicians were as near perfect as is humanly possible. It was emotional music as Leonard said 'now from the heart'. The 2 songs with Leonard and Anjani were heavenly and I was transferred to a different level. The audience reaction was euphoric. Anjani played an encore 'Nightingale'.

The experience was already exceeding even my best expectations when after a short wait I was introduced to Leonard and Anjani and was able to thank them for the music and all they have given me. Leonard greeted me, shook my hand and embraced and said 'it is nice to meet you Kevin'. We had photos taken, he signed the cover of his book for me and signed a note to my wife ' For Michelle All My Love, Leonard Cohen 2007'.

Leonards graciousness, dignity and overall gentleness, which I had always sensed, shone brightly and went straight to my heart.

Thank you Leonard from the bottom of my heart for your love.
