Re: "Cuff" becomes "Cough" Arghh.

I think/hope that my post may lead to a reduction rather than an extension of the cough error, if for no other reason than it turns out already to be exceedingly common. (Google "My love is some dust in an old man's cough" to see.) I presume that those alerted to it hereby may take measures.

Re: "Cuff" becomes "Cough" Arghh.

In listening to the first recording of Master Song (1967 Songs of Leonard Cohen) over the past 50 years, most recently yesterday, I have heard "cuff." In terms of printed lyrics Selected Poems 1957-1968, published in 1968 and Stranger Music -- Selections, published 25 years later, both with Leonard'...

"Cuff" becomes "Cough" Arghh.

How and when did the powerful and lovely line from Master Song "Your love is some dust in an old man's cuff" get perverted to "Your love is some dust in an old man's cough"? I just discovered the error that seems to have been floating around for years.

Just snagged six in one of the nose-bleed sections: 321. I'll try not to look down on the rest of you.--Tom

Re: Hydra 2015: thank you, Friends!

I thank you, Jarkko, and all those on Hydra and abroad who contributed to a most moving and generally wonderful few Leonard Cohen days on Hydra. I was sorry I could not stay through Sunday night, but left savoring the meetings I had had with old friends and the new acquaintanceships I had made durin...

Re: Lucky with our meetup timing

Well, I was in Athens last Sunday when the temperature was 99F (37C) and was not uncomfortable, just happy to still be in Greece, which I was not by the following day. As for wind chill, Andrew, it's a bunch of B.S. And I say this as a physicist who started professional life as a meteorologist. One ...

Re: After Hydra (2007)

Just a note to say that I too am alive and well and living on Peaks Island after a stupendous two weeks--one on Hydra and one traveling around Israel with my forensic group and with my daughter, Cecilia. Since I had to depart too damn soon from H (on the last boat Friday night) and hence missed so m...

update

I now see that I would have to leave Hydra on the night of the 8th in order to catch a flight out of Athens on the 9th. So I am tentatively thinking of being on Hydra the 4th through 8th. When was the hike being planned for?--Tom

I am just beginning to think it may be possible for me to attend the Hydra 2007 event. However, I would have to leave by Saturday morning the 9th. Will there be people there earlier in the week?
