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

Hello again.... I am sorry it has taken me so long to add to our conversation on Death of a Lady’s Man. I have excuses (most of them valid, some of them made up) for not getting back before now, but I will spare you deciding which is which, since most of the time, even I am not sure! Those who have ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Bev So sorry for the fires. We too have had many more than usual in the West in the past few years. The smoke and lives lost make you feel like it is armageddon. I loved your link with the blind man and the girl. Jean is right. Words can make all the difference. I am reminded of this whenever I real...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Bev, I meant to reply first thing this morning, but it seems that Jean has beat me to the punch! I too was going to comment on your post regarding that you didn't realize you had such influence. I was going to say Ha! And then double Ha! Your influence is great, in these realms at least! I am LOVING...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

My internet is back on... but that doesn't mean no typos! My pride (which I am learning is not the great personality trait that I thought it was) makes me tell you that medical transcriptionist was one of my many occupations, so even one typo is always an embarrassment. However, the reason I am writ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hello again, OK fine... B4 and Jean... you have encouraged me to finally order a Lorca book! Mine is coming from the UK through the Abe Books site I use. I will let you know what it looks like when I get it. I also need to apologize for all of the typos in my previous post. We are now in the metropo...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

So good to hear from everyone! Alan, I am also looking forward to the ferry tickets opening up. I'm a little nervous about that part of the trip, because I'm not sure about getting from Athens to Hydra, but I'm sure it will all work out. I am also looking forward to reading Half the Perfect World. I...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Wow! If anyone had told me even 2 years ago that I would be traveling to an island in Greece that I had never even heard of before because of a man who was gone before I finally found him, I would have marvelled in the unpredicabality of life, and I also would have told them that they were crazy!

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

...even though I spat the dummy recently because that horrendous episode was so fresh in my mind doesn’t really mean that I won’t stop attempting to get over my anxiety... "Spat the dummy" eh? I had to Google that one! :D Although it may have been in the Australian slang link that I believe Alan sh...

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

B4- So good to hear from you, as always! I truly hate flying and that most definitely confirmed it! I said to the poor lady in the seat beside me, “That’s it! I don’t think I’ll ever do this again!!” Is this your way of telling me that I will not get to meet you in Hydra next June? You said that you...

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

ah Vickie, it’s always my pleasure to be of some help! ... B4- I hope it is truly of pleasure like you say. I have learned so much through you and the others on this site, that I feel I am greedy sometimes. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond! I read your post the day you sent it, and shared i...

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

Thank you Jarkko for posting this link to Adam's interview. I have only had chance to hear part of it on my lunch hour, but I look forward to hearing the rest and just wanted to say thanks!

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

B4, Thank you so much for your reply. I shared it with Dave. He is more of a music guy and not so much for the poetry, but since he knows you from our other thread, it helps me give credibility to Leonard's poetry. ;-) Poetry is so pure... you either like poetry for the poetry's sake or you don't. L...

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

Well… Thankfully, I didn’t pay too much for my copy of The Energy of Slaves, because it has suffered from travelling with me. It has been stuffed into the bottom of the tote bag I carry to work and back (along with the Oregon Driver’s Manual which I am supposed to be studying instead). It has been t...

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

PS- Regarding Beautiful Losers: When I lived in Idaho, I felt that I was the only Leonard Cohen fan alive, because every time I brought him up, people were like, "Leonard who??" (True, he was already gone when I first discovered him, so I probably missed the boat) But after finding the forum, I real...

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

Hi 4! Sorry I haven't responded for so long. No other excuse but that we are still reeling from our 2 moves and new jobs. In fact, we are just now in the middle of (aka: arguing about) building a shelter for our donkeys before the rains come. Thank you for bringing up the wine on the tablecloth agai...
