Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

To a Poet Living Long:

Happy Birthday Leonard Cohen
Long persists your dulcet tone
Your genes were good
Your karma right
So you don't have to say "Good Night"
Unless the climate wipes us out
You'll still be with us, have no doubt
Should Armageddon blow its horn
We'll hear you singing on that morn.

Re: Esther Cohen

Thanks Dick and Lizzytysh for helping us to know and appreciate Esther even more than we did. What a blessing and at times a burden it must have been to be the nearest relative to a giant like Leonard Cohen, and how graciously she played this supporting role.

Re: Esther Cohen

It seems she was not merely a fashion figure, or "among the idle rich." Dick Straub is going to flesh out his description of her with some details about career and education.

Re: Esther Cohen

Does anybody know anything about Esther other than she was Victor's wife and Leonard's sister? Education? Career? Travel? Interests? Talents? Creations? The picture we are getting so far is only of her kind and vivacious personality. Surely there was more to her than that.

Re: Esther Cohen

And... there appeared to be no sibling rivalry, although Leonard was in the limelight, besieged with admiring fans, and she was living a simpler, more private life. She called him "my brother" and was glad for his good fortune.

Re: Esther Cohen

Named for a biblical queen and heroine of the "Book of Esther," Esther Cohen was a fine daughter of the source of her name. She was a beautiful and gracious lady. My condolences to Leonard and the rest of her family.
