Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

" . . .perhaps the most explicit expression in his songs until now." Until now. So there is hope we'll be able to read more or hear (from the tower of song) in the future.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Rest in Peace, dear Leonard Cohen. Heartfelt condolences to his family and friends--to all of us on this forum whom his work has touched so much.

Re: Blackening pages

Thank you all for your answers -- and the hopeful anticipation expressed, which matches mine. I cannot imagine LC not writing -- whether for a book or an album--songs, prose, poetry. One way or another we will hear from him. I am sure of that. Good guess about his using a variety of ways to put down...
