Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

A couple of weeks ago or so I was telling my friends here about the deep and moving feeling I have when watching "Schindler's List". Well... it is crying time again, because they are showing it on one of the Romanian TV channels... I spent the last hour or so reading the newest posts in various thre...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, September 24

Two superb articles and the video clip that Arlene found on YouTube have just placed a rainbow on this end-of-holidays weekend of mine. And, I feel I should add, so many beautiful words emerging from the hearts of journalists who suppressed the immediate urge to write polite journalistic phrasing ab...

Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

Dear Lizzy,

It is not as if I were gone until next (winter) holidays - it's just that I probably will be much busier, and not able to stay on the forum as much as I do now. So you will definitely see me present here, at least once a week!

And thanks for your nice words.

Re: Leonard Cohen 76 years

Sasha, EXCELLENT IDEA for us to contribute with anything that would represent us best, in a book for Leonard's 76th birthday. Another poster, maybe with photos taken by Cohenites from the 2009 concerts, and group photos from Hydra or concerts, would qualify as well. I say it especially as I am one o...

Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

I also think that Mirek has given us the best solution. It also covers all choices related to the duration of the tour for different people. In the near future (starting with October 5th) I'll be less active here :( because that's when the academic year starts in Romania (usually on the 1st, but rar...

Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

I hope you won't be disappointed that it's just so likely that a single, heated debate won't happen. If they do, they're rare, and I've never been privy to one. ~ Lizzy Hi Lizzy, Life is so interesting because we are so different, so there is no problem with having different opinions. Actually, you...

Re: The Krakow Event: Tour to Auschwitz/Birkenau

Dear all, I wonder if our Krakow meetings will be just as heated? In the weeks I have spent actively with this forum (and the two years of reading your posts) I have come to like many of you, for the way in which you share your love and admiration for Leonard, for your opinions and interesting threa...

Re: Cohen, Springsteen, V. Morrison, Dylan & the Stones

Excellent idea - and an excellent post, Goldstei. I am sure it will prompt a great deal of comments here - on the highs and lows of fame, for instance, or on the "idol-fans" relationship in all cases. Personally, I loved both Cohen and Dylan in the 80s, but always felt closer to Leonard (which is st...

Re: Robert Kory gives a frank interview-The Jewish Daily Forward

I am not a Jew, but if this is a time for reconciliation, I think that all of us should try it, at least from time to time... And it is in this spirit that I am writing the following words. Well, it is not for the first time that messages written by Sirius leave me with a sort of apprehension. Peter...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Tel Aviv, September 24

For several days now I have eagerly read all the posts related to Barcelona and Tel Aviv concerts, the press articles, the photos, everything... Each of you has shared with us a fragment of a grandiose mosaic which, in a way, is meant to never end. Barcelona was everyone's gift to Leonard, and Tel A...

Jarkko meeting Marianne in Barcelona

Several days ago, after the Barcelona show on Leonard's birthday, Jarkko mentioned that Marianne was also present there, and that he and other Cohenites actually met her. Jarkko, could you please tell us more about this meeting? Did you take pictures? Was she invited personally by Leonard? What did ...

Re: Washington Post article

There are so many interesting newspaper articles about this concert and they come on so many different threads ... very difficult to keep up with them - but I'm doing my best to do so!
