Book-stack promo

Our national broadcaster, ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), as part of its evening TV news segment has a Finance Report by Alan Kohler. Alan makes these reports more interesting than the subject matter might suggest, with a quirky witty approach, and of late he’s been featuring a book-stack...

Re: Australian Ladies Tribute Concert to LC Anniversary Nov 7th

Bev, I strongly recommend you and whoever else is able to catch this live-streaming concert, as Junk and I really enjoyed the venue-based concert that this seems to be modelled on (with the same name), which we attended at the beginning of the year 8), though the artist line-up is clearly different ...

Leonard’s praises sung, on radio

My son Tim sent me the link below to Episode 6 of a cool radio show hosted by Laurie Anderson, called Party in the Bardo, which some of you may be familiar with. Tim described the show itself as “quite spacious, poetic and reflective - perfect for lockdown”. 8) Anyway, he sent it to me because Lauri...

Re: The Demons of Leonard Cohen

In addition to Maarten’s and yopietro’s foregoing comments, the following quote is from my friend Clive, whom I shared this discussion with, being a classicist and linguist during his academic life. Hi Andrew, I think that title is perfect, however it may be spelt. Of course, as a classicist, I pref...

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

In response to the comments by Bev and Lizzy, earlier in this thread, when I mentioned needing to be patient in a twofold way, as a grandfather-in-waiting, I can say my patience in this respect has now been rewarded. :D So if you’re Interested in the details, please refer to my post here: https://ww...

Yes, Bev, I‘m still in Cairns, as far away from that awful Melbourne outbreak as I can be. :neutral:

Irrespective, I’m indeed awaiting my double joy! ;-) 8)

Re: Greece Poems

Hi Woody, I think I've found evidence that Leonard did finish a few poetry books on Hydra. Firstly, these three poetry books were published in the sixties when he was primarily resident there: The Spice-Box Of Earth (1961); Flowers For Hitler (1964); and Parasites Of Heaven (1966). Secondly, in the ...

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)

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, ...
