For those who don't check out the poetry section, here is my own best wishes for the New Year:


"Clarence said a striking thing about rowing that I've always valued ... that he liked rowing because you were approaching life backward. You could clearly see the past, and you glanced quickly at the future over your shoulder.' Jim Harrison.

Special thanks to Jarkko and all the moderators for their great work on this wonderful forum. It has been such a pleasure to meet fellow Cohen fans in so many places, and then to be able to keep in touch. Barcelona was the most special for me, and I will always treasure it as a very special memory.
I have tickets for Zagreb, so it's looking good for 2010 ! Hope to meet up with some of you guys on the 2010 tour. :)

Thanks for the lovely picture, Jarkko. Happy New Year to you and Eija, and to all Cohenites wherever they may be but most especially to the members here, who make this such a rewarding place to be.

Nollaig na mBan greetings from Dublin, Ireland

6th January in Ireland is traditionally Little Women's Christmas - Nollaig na mBan. It also marks the end of the Christmas period.
As we embark on a new year I extend my gratitude to Jarkko and Eija for the gift of this forum. To all the wonderful Leonard Cohen fans I met last year thank you for your friendship, warmth and hospitality. I had the time of my life in 2009 thanks to this forum and the extraordinary people I met along the way.

To Leonard, the band and crew. May the road rise to meet you and may the sun be on your back wherever that road takes you.

Music changes lives and Leonard Cohen's music changed mine.

With a song in my heart, with love & friendship.

2008 - RHK Dublin x 2, Lucca, Birmingham
2009 - Dublin x 2, Barcelona, Nashville
2010 - Marseille, Las Vegas X 2

All Irish fans would echo your sentiments Paula. And let us continue to hope for a return visit.

Stunning photo, Jarkko and Eija - you deserve a beautiful home ! I hope there will be more concerts in Finland !

Thanks so much, Jarkko , Eija and moderators, for the gift of this Forum - always nourishing, always a haven.

May the New Year bring good health, happiness, and wonderful surprises to you, Leonard, and all Cohenites everywhere.

May the tour go on !!! I join with Lizzy and Mutti in hoping that we all see Leonard at least one more time...and from great seats !

Love and Peace

We rented a cottage for a few days (including New Year's) and these were taken on a walkabout. Here's to new turns in the road for everyone. Cheers!
