Re: Pre-Raphaelites and the songs of Leonard Cohen

Yes, I agree. I picked up that thread awhile ago and wove it into a little Cohen-based art project of my own.

Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

I am wondering….Since we raised so large a sum so quickly… Perhaps we could set up a foundation or "Hydra Island Support Fund" with the excess, and continue to accept donations in the future. Members could choose to create fundraising events, or donate small amounts from sales of Hydra- or Leonard-r...

Re: Book your accommodation as early as possible

I don't think there will be a problem. My usual hotel is showing up as "fully booked" on booking.com and as "unavailable" on the hotel website but I emailed directly and received a reply confirming my room 2 minutes later. So, I think we may be trying to book too early...

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I love it all so far! And I will contribute as much as I can. We could possibly also organize various fundraisers?And/ or use a crowd-sourcing site? That is, if it seems too costly..
Thanks for all the great work, team!

Re: Where is our 2016 Event??

Dear friends, I live in St. John's, and for me, a trip to anywhere is a major expedition, so I usually only go where my heart is beckoned. I am both saddened ( for you) and gladdened (for me) that most of the Cohen-event people don't want to come here. I am sad for all the beauty and joy you'll miss...
