I have had to let 24 hours pass by to ensure that I was not hallucinating and tell you all I met Mr. Cohen walking discreetly in Dublin yesterday morning.

I was walking along Lr Abbey Street [for those who know Dublin!!] at 8.45am yesterday heading to work full of LC thoughts and the excitement of the weekend concerts [going Saturday and Sunday]. This debonair immaculately dressed man with a magnificent hat passed me by. I stopped dead in my tracks, did a double take and realised that I had just passed by an icon whose work I have adored for the past 40 years!!! Mr. Leonard Cohen walking quietly along a Dublin Street.

He turned into a side street and I ran after him. I introduced myself and quite honestly turned into a blubbering mess!!!. I welcomed him to Dublin, thanked him for all the enjoyment he brought into my life over the years and told him how very much I was looking forward to his concerts. He thanked me and showing great humour and concern for his Irish audience enquired of me what if it rains at the concert? --he obviously was very acquainted with the vagaries of the Irish weather!!--I told him I would get him a large umbrella and he laughed!!!--I asked him if I could help him with directions but he politely told me that 'he just likes to check out the city himself ‘. We shook hands said goodbye and I continued on into work in a daze!!!

And they say Friday 13th is unlucky!!--not for me --I will saviour those few personal words I had with Leonard yesterday for the rest of my life

Best wishes to all and enjoy the treat in store for us tonight and tomorrow night

Just got back from the ererald isle (to yorkshire, england) and no he isn't hoarse and BOY can he sung....................just the most amazing concert ever. It took him a 45 mins encore (3 times he tried to leave) to get off the stage and he certainly did dance me to the end of love.

An amazing sound altogether - the Webb Sisters and Sharon were superb.

Details! Details! I want details please!!! Did he alter the set list? How did he look? What did he say? I'm going tonight and I can't wait. By the way, what's the food like? I'm thinking of waiting until I got to the concert to eat something.
