I'm so glad to hear Leonard (and the band) had plenty of energy at the Charlottetown performance as that made 7 shows in 8 nights! I don't think even Springsteen would try that at his age!

I think he is genuinely happy on stage, plus enthusiastic response from the audience gives him additional boost of energy.
I never before saw him smiling on stage !! and there is this glow of a person at peace with himself coming from inside, that I can see looking at him.

This is a twisted thought, but -- shouldn't we all write a "thank you"note to his ex-manager ? :mrgreen: :twisted: :twisted:
After all she made a lot of people happy-- at least for the moment.

I looked once more at the Charlottetown photos, in this age of instant-ersatz-of everything Leonard Cohen makes the most unlikely star I can think of !
here we have this 70+ guy wearing suit and a hat, singing in a "golden voice" lyrics including vocabulary rarely used these days, with multiple cross cultural references, and a continuum meaning.
And a young girl proposing to him with a song :roll: :D :roll: :D
How likely is it nowadays ? :shock: :shock: :shock:

Hehehe it's true, hey?
Oh, but he deserves every bit of it :)

So, I can't help but remind myself now and then that he's got my CD.
It's making me pretty elated.
I soo wonder if he's listened yet...
I <3 Leonard this much:
(please note the song on there dedicated to him, in which I propose :D )
