The Flame-discussion thread

I posted the following to a group of University of Wisconsin sports fans who I consider friends. It contains some personal history of my love of Leonard and his works, but I thought it might be a good start to a discussion of this wonderful book of poems and notebook entries. Just received the book ...

Arthur Moore has passed away

It is with great sorrow that I report that Arthur passed away on Monday, May 7th. Those of you who attended the Leonard Cohen Event on Hydra in 2002 and New York in 2004 will probably remember fondly Arthur and Bernadette. Here is a link to his memorial page for memories and condolences. https://www...

Re: Montreal: comments and feelings

I just returned to this topic and noticed that I had missed Anneporter's video-wonderfully done to a great song! Thank you. And I really enjoyed the accounts that Vickie and 4inthemorning linked to. They brought back many memories for Anne & I. It was a wonderful week for us in a city that we have c...

Re: Between Your Love and Mine - Requiem in Ireland

Thank you for clarifying that. It seemed familiar but I thought it was the reference about "leaning across the old table" in his song. Still a very worthwhile interview and I would love to see the production.

Re: Between Your Love and Mine - Requiem in Ireland

I hope that they can make a recording of this-for those who didn't have the pleasure of seeing it. Perhaps, it will be performed where those of us who admire John and love Leonard can see it. Here is a great interview with John https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhZVmyB21b0 Included is this new LC poem...

Re: Mingle With the Universe: The Worlds of Lord Byron by Eric Andersen

John, I just acquired this terrific cd-it is beyond excellent! I've been an Eric Andersen fan since my teenage years about the same time as I became a fan of Leonard. I highly recommend this recording-I've only listened to it twice (and once was in the car at too low a volume) but it is clearly an e...

Re: „Leonard Cohen – as remembered by Jennifer Warnes“

Thank you, Hartmut-that's a great article! I loved this quote from Leonard: ‘Jenny, never question where love comes from. We have no control over these things. From a stranger, a mother, a dog, or that perfect mate, it comes from wherever it comes. You were lucky, in fact – everyone hopes to find lo...

Thank you very much Mat and I'm Your Fan for introducing the work of San Juan de la Cruz. It reminds me that Leonard referenced mystic poets such as "cloud of unknowing." And thank you to Diane, Ursula & Vicki for your continued discussion about the album. Boss, I think Doron can give you more detai...

Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

Anne & I sincerely wish we could join you. The Barmouth trip was one of the best of our lives, but the distance is too great. Hopefully we will see many of you in Hungary in September-plus there was this issue with Phil & Jean getting thrown out of our B & B!
