Dear Friends,

thanks for coming, thanks for the many lovely presents, for your kind words, for the flowing love, for keeping the music alive. It was a hard work to organize the Event but I loved (almost) every moments and seeing the joy on your faces was gratifying. This Event will be one of the most pecious memories in my life. Hope to see you again down the Cohen road. Hydra awaits :)

Eva

Eija and I are safely back in Finland, after a wonderful time in Budapest. Big thanks to Eva for the splendid Event she had created! She had found and signed great artists who provided us unforgettable performances. Special thanks also for so many stylish mementos in the Event bag! I will upload the Event booklet to the Files soon.

Looking forward to seeing many of you next year! We will have the Hydra Meetup in June 2019 - more at www.leonardcohenfiles.com/backtohydra.html -, and the biennial Walking Weekend in September. And, if we practice patience (here we have the familiar P-word again!), more surprising news will follow in due time. ;-)

i have never experienced so much positive feedback (lc forum, facebook & privately) from an event as has been the case this year. much respect to eva for arranging such a successful event.
it would be lovely to go to hydra one day, but riding in an aeroplane is not an option - because i am too scared to do it.

No words can describe the happiness we all found during the Event. You did a superb job in creating this lovely Event in which we all could gather with our friends, old and new. I guess it was an emotional rollercoaster organizing it all for us, but it worked out beautifully.

Thanks for all the hard work, it truly is deeply appreciated by all of us!

All the best
Maarten and Nele

Just home this weekend from the most amazing weekend in Budapest. Everything was perfect, we were so lucky. Thank you so much, Eva, and your team. The performers were all brilliant, the film, the open mic, the venue, the company, the yoga, the boat trip, the Nordic trekking.

I travelled to Budapest by train from the UK stopping in Brussels, Berlin and Bratislava on the way there and Vienna, Zurich, Frankfurt and Aachen on the way back. Certainly a trip to remember forever.

Grateful thanks to all, Janet

I'm wondering if Jarkko's famous "P" word might also be associated with another "P" word - Patrick Leonard ;-) https://ew.com/article/2016/11/11/leona ... -rb-album/
He and I had talked about the string record, and he said, ‘I might not see it finished, but I’d like it to be finished no matter what.’
No matter what, it's definitely a pleasurable feeling to look forward to whatever is coming!
