Oh Henning,

You are indeed a tease. Does this mean that you will be dancing as you play and sing LC songs? Ken, I'm counting on you to photoshop this.

Warmest regards,
Mary

wybe that might well be leonard cohen's hydra table at night but it certainly doesn't look like any hydra table at night that we have ever sat around...

...here is a reminder of the kind of hydra table at night that we are more familiar with....ta ken

...now i wonder which 3 people on this year's hydra participant's list would consider this as the perfect hydra table at night........

clues:
01. a german country boy and very disappointed football supporter with a poet's heart
02. a belgian soft drink addict with an adoring female following within the leonard cohen community
03. a grumpy old english bob dylan fan who would die happy if he never had to listen to another leonard cohen cover song ever again

answers on a postcard to the usual address

This Scheisse colour fits on that book. I love that scarf though. Bright and yellow.

Hi Dani - I think the schedule of Hellenic seaways will be available soon though I never book tickets in advance.

See you then.

yesterday bobcats from all around the world celebrated the elevation of his bobness into the american academy of arts and letters

thank goodness there were no german country boys on the selection committee........

"The most influential songwriter of his time has become the first rock star voted into the elite, century-old American Academy of Arts and Letters, where artists range from Philip Roth to Jasper Johns and categories include music, literature and visual arts"

daniD

we are all waiting for the summer ferry timetables to be published...i wouldn't expect anything until much before easter..which this year in greece is the first weekend in may....but keep checking by all means as i am doing the same as i need to also arrange further ferry trips down to the cyclades islands after hydra

i'm also arriving in athens on wednesday 5th. in the early afternoon so i would like to know whether i need to rush down to piraeus for a ferry over to hydra..but as henning has said there is no need to book ahead plenty of room on all ferries in early june

as soon as the ferry timetables are published we will let everybody know on this thread
