Re: Bob Dylan Awarded Nobel Prize for Literature 2016

I am very sorry that I could only get hold of sparce fragments of the consultations by the Nobel committee leading to the prize for literature 2016: „The prize is no more valued as it was.“ „Only some elderly bibliophiles.“ „We lost the youth.“ „The youth don´t read anyway.“ „Pop music. The youth is...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Probably only previous organizers can imagine the amount of work, thoughts and nerves Maarten has already put in preparing for the event. I feel very sorry for you, Maarten, that you had to make this decision. There was no alternative. As for the future date for Ghent I think it best if a smaller gr...

This is not intended to the ill ones who have all my empathy. This meant for the healthy ones dealing with quarantine and situation. Difficult times, I wrote. But we will not forget that what we now call difficult, being confined to our home, in excessive fear for our well being, avidly awaiting the...

Re: Event program - first band announced!

These are difficult times for many of us. I´d like to wish you all health, dear friends. And this must be an especially hard time for our brave organizer of the Leonard Cohen Event.

Re: Leonard exhibition now in Copenhagen

I do not intend to organize anything like a meeting. But our small group of four Bavarian Cohenites will be in Copenhagen for the exhibition 2.4. - 6./7.4.2020. If anyone else will be there, might have a drink or a dinner together.

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Yes, welcome Celena. Quite an inventive introduction of yourself, compliments.
Somehow reminded me of Paul Auster. Are you Paul Auster?
Anyhow I happily accept your invitation and look forward to interesting discussions with Dylan, waaah.
Now what exactly were your few questions?
Sincerely, a friend.

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Thanks a lot, dear Phil, that is excellent service.
But no hassle if something comes in between. In case we would find our way ourselves.
Best wishes, see you soon.

Re: Henning 60 y

Dear Henning
There is no virtue in getting older, no reason to be proud of being born.
But as there now nothing can be done about it, have party, let yourself be partied and may the party keep on all the year long, to which my wishes shall accompany you.
