Re: September 21, 1934

Hartmut & Bev, both of your posts are so lovely & beautiful, that I feel compelled to add an offering. So, shabby though it may be, here is something I wrote in honor of our Leonard's 85th birthday: Darling, Where Are You? And when they ask, saying "Darling, where are you?" What shall I tell them My...

Re: I have a few questions I want to ask

Hello,Celena. Your baby has come up with a very clever little plan - not sordid at all - as he has obviously perceived that Mr. Cohen loves Shabbat dinners & he loves challah, & he greatly enjoys the company of crying babies too. In fact, I clearly remember a recording of a concert which Leonard gav...

Re: Treaty

LEONARD: .. We used to talk about ‘Treaty: The Movie’, as I did no less than 25 versions of “Treaty”... [/i] Thank you, Bev, & very good to see you too! Given Patrick Leonard's comments about 'Treaty: The Movie' & the 25 versions, it seems my obsession (& everyone else's obsession) with this song h...

Re: Treaty

Mark, thank you for your post. "Treaty" has been haunting me daily (in a good way), ever since I first heard it in Amsterdam 2016. This song lays down with me every night, like a bedtime prayer; & whenever i hear it, be it in my mind or on CD, it takes me to that extraordinary, indescribable, other-...

LC Soundtrack in Homecoming

In Season 1, Episode 9 of the series, "Homecoming", the first 4 lines of the last verse of Coming Back To You ("Even in your arms..."), are played in the background of a particular scene, somewhere around the middle of the episode; it's only those 4 lines, but to the credit of whoever made this deci...

Re: Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

Isn't there a button "buy with one click" that allows you to buy the audio without subscription? ( see below) Hugo, thank you so much for your efforts & your reply. However, the option to buy in any manner did not come up at amazon.com or audible.com; after trying again several times, I called "cus...

Re: Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

This is amazing, wonderful news, but when I go to amazon.com (the U.S. website), using the link provided, it says " this is not available to you" & then "this title is no longer available"! :shock: Maybe that just refers to the printed book... And when I did a search for "Book of Longing audio editi...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

If you go back to the first page of this thread, you will see that Leonard sent this poem us on August 25, 2016, to make sure we'd see it. Happens to the Heart will be the first poem in his forthcoming book "The Flame". The poem is still dated on June 24, 2016, and no changes have been made. Dear J...
