Many Happy Returns, Leonard! Today (Monday) is your Solar Return - your true astrological birthday, when the Sun returns to its exact postion at birth. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, and a wonderful year ahead. Hope to see you back in the UK before too long (next June maybe?).

Very best wishes, John E

Dear Leonard

As your birthday is international day of peace, and as your home (especially in these days of touring) is very much the world, a Jewish blessing (from an atheist!) seems appropriate:

May this home be a place of happiness and health,
of contentment, generosity and hope,
a home of creativity and kindness.
May those who visit and those who live here
know only blessing and peace.

I feel truly blessed to have had the chance to hear you!

He moved the hand
and in his gesture is a history of all movements...
He speaks
and in his words is life itself,
he sings
and in his songs is the power of the universe ...
You can love him,
You can hate him
but... he is love ....

I love you Mr. Cohen...
Happy birthday.... 8)

Dear Leonard,

September 21st is at once your birthday, International Day of Peace and World Gratitude Day. There is something so congruent about this triad of celebrations. We have so many reasons to be grateful and one is certainly your words and music, but also the fallibility and inspiration of your life journey.
I wish you many more years of health, joy, creativity, searching and equanimity.

All the best,
Merton

Have the happiest of happy birthdays darling Leonard.

You have kept your heart open to me all these years, I have had the privilege of feeling your joy, your misery, your ecstacy:shock:, occasionally your anger, sometimes even your naughtiness;-). You have cheered me when I have been miserable, you have accompanied me every day and sung with me through the traffic jams, you have enriched my quiet moments with velvety words and voice. I could wax on for hours.

I have tried to imagine my life without having you, actually it's unimaginable.

Thank you and have the greatest day ever.

Love

Happy birthday, Leonard. You were indeed born with the gift of a Golden Voice and aren't we the lucky ones to have heard and appreciated it?
