Re: THE FLAME - Leonard's New Collection of Poetry

Came across this item on eBay https://www.ebay.nl/itm/Leonard-Cohen-THE-FLAME-UNCORRECTED-PROOF-ONLY-ONE-COPY-FOR-SALE/263850126866?hash=item3d6eb16e12:g:avsAAOSwz2JbYNXR Yes, I had seen it too...

Re: Afterword

Sounds like everyone had a wonderful time :D and.... And, if we practice patience (here we have the familiar P-word again!), more surprising news will follow in due time. ;-) I'm wondering if Jarkko's famous "P" word might also be associated with another "P" word - P atrick Leonard ;-) https://ew.co...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

My pleasure, Vickie :D And it's great that you have normal internet now! That Big O link was working fine yesterday from my position and is still OK today. It must be something from where you are. The site has a short re-direction for spam and then it goes straight onto the page for 92nd Street YM-Y...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, I thought these links would be more suitable for you at this stage. This is an all-time classic recording of LC from 1966 in New York. The first YouTube link has the same content as the second link but you can download all or individual segments with the latter plus info and album artwork. I...

Re: hope

Yes Geoffrey, the mind can unexpectedly provide an answer to a question that has been consciously elusive for years when the environment is conducive. Actually, that particular scene you speak of is similar to what I see every day from my house and I love watching the white sails of the boats glidin...

Re: hope

Hi Geoffrey, I love that line of Leonard’s “our hope (lies) is in the distant seed”. I know you love it too from years ago and just in case you still haven’t found where he wrote it, it’s in psalm 18 from Book of Mercy. An excerpt follows: “We drink coffee, and some kind of powerful fruit brandy, an...

Yes Lisa, a safe bet we would think, as he had many years of saying her name.... albeit it with a Canadian accent ;-) And speaking of pronunciation, I've always had an affinity for the way Europeans say "LAY-oh-nard"'s name and I sometimes hear the written "Leonard" spoken phonetically as "Lee-on-ar...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Oh, one question regarding the pronunciation of Anjani's name. Dave said the 'j' is maybe silent. (His family has connections in Hawaii, and his sister still lives there). Do you know? I guess all names vary with different accents :) the presenter at the start of this interview - https://www.youtub...
