Relief is what I'm feeling now after reading all these reassuring posts. Thank you for all of your information and sentiments about our dear Leonard and his health.

Please, Leonard, take care of yourself. You are very loved!

Poet/performer Leonard Cohen recovering from collapse (AP)

Dear Leonard –
Rest little bit and maybe little bit more than little bit for God’s sake!
“Lead me deep into your Sabbath, let me seat beneath the mighty ones whom you crowned forever and let me study how they rest.” (Book of Mercy)
Please take care of yourself, eat only the finest food and recover soon.
We miss you when you’re gone.

L’SHANAH TOVAH TIKATEV V’TAIHATEM!!!

Dear Leonard,
I heard that you collapsed on stage in Valencia yesterday and were taken to the hospital and then released and that you're resting now.
I wish you speedy recovery and hope that you will be back again and again and again and again and again and again and again.

Get well!
God bedring!
Shana Tova!

hello fom Spain friends, was in his concert last thrusday in Bilbao, what a terrific shwow! Bilbao really loves Cohen and he knows it
hadnt been here for 24 years, i was there too and yes, we love him.The show last thrusday was incredible, not a whisper could be heard
and then people began to follow some of his songs singing.He got roses at the end.

Just one thing worries me as the med that i am. are you sure he is ok? I mean, is he really ok? I really hope he is.

Only just heard the news, but so relieved to know that whilst horrid it was only food poisoning and nothing disastrous!

I hope you're feeling much much better, take it easy!

Much love

Man, I guess when you think about it, it's not too surprising that something like this would happen, at his age and with how much strenuous activity he's had over the last year and a half. I'm sure glad it appears to be something pretty minor and that he's okay though.

Interesting post.
Since you mentioned concern for Leonard Cohen's physical state.. I was wondering if perhaps this was not just a bout of intestinal flu but perhaps also symptomatic of orthostatic hypotention?
Was it determined he had an episode of syncopy?
He is unbelievably agile, remarkably so.

I hope he is given a full workup.

I certainly need Leonard Cohen to be around for a long long time....
