Re: The Hydra Bench: trees & bushes!!

Thanks Jarkko... lovely to see! :D

I’ve also been missing Hydra, particularly as I’m now reading Polly Samson’s ‘A Theatre for Dreamers’, which beautifully conjures up everything about Hydra I relate to and, of course, what it means for us as Cohenites. 8)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Hi Bev, guess what, I flew up to Cairns on March 17th to celebrate a birthday milestone with my siblings, and as the Coronavirus scenario developed over the following days, I decided to stay up here, as fortunately my family had a spare house I could avail myself of... so I’m now ensconced up here, ...

Re: Random LC moment I am adoring today

Hi Bev, I too watched the same movie and was taken by surprise when it came on. When I heard the start of it, I thought, no it can’t be The Partisan, just a passing similarity, then sure enough, happily it unfolded to indeed be that song from Songs From A Room. 8) It’s good to know you’re staying we...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Hi Maarten, it is indeed so sad the event needed to be postponed after all the hard work you’ve undertaken organising things thus far... we applaud you for that :!: I’ve no particular preference re what year it should go ahead. I am never sure if I can make it to these events that are so far away fr...

Re: Hydra 2019 - Recollections

Thanks again Wybe, for another wonderful picture/video show of our 2019 gathering. 8)

Nine months goes by so quickly and so It's nice to be reminded of our happy time on Hydra then. :D

Re: Another film about Marianne's life & Leonard & Hydra

Jarkko & Anne, thank you so much for providing the information about this new film, with the Vimeo link to the film itself :!: I have now watched the whole 2 hours plus of this film and, despite quite a bit of it being in Norwegian, have to say it was such a powerful experience that beautifully show...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Additional info on 'The Night of Santiago' As ProfNowlin has indicated in his earlier post, 'The Night of Santiago' is based on a Frederico Garcia Lorca poem entitled 'The Unfaithful Wife', which I found a few translations of, each a bit different. Nevertheless, it’s interesting to see how it’s been...

Sophia, thanks for that very interesting and pertinent information, which resolves the mystery... and it's nice to know that the Cohen father and son connection with Greece is manifest in such a lovely collaborative way in this instance! 8) I must admit too that I'd missed seeing Mariza Rizou's name...

This album is growing on me so much , though several tracks were immediately appreciated on first listening. As is usually the case, this album doesn't fail to resonate within the deepest recesses of my being... and I just keep playing it over and over. 8) Maarten, thanks for posting Sony's detailed...
