Happy Birthday for yesterday, I was travelling in France on my way back from your Strasbourg concert.

I hope you had a lovely peaceful day, thank you once again for the music. If I am stressed just listening to the start of any of your songs lowers my blood pressure straight away, just sublime :)

Dear Jarkko,

It is so very kind of our friends to remember my birthday.
Please thank them for their warm good wishes and their encouragement.
I cannot put into words how much it means to me.

Love and Blessings,

It's been a 14-hour workday
But it'd be sacrilege not to say
Cheers to your birth
This blissful day


Many happy returns from Singapore, Leonard.

P.S. Please return to Boogie Street someday :D

Dear Leonard,
Yes, I read your reply before the message I'm posting, belatedly, now.
Happy 76th birthday to you.
Please understand this greeting is not only from me, but from the whole McGeever family, recently swollen by the arrival of my first grandchild, Arlo.
Leonard, you are loved by so many people in so many lands, especially Scotland :D
Bless you,
Andrew McGeever.

I've been away from this site for a few months, but that in no way means my great admiration and affection for Leonard C. has diminished!! :)

My dear daughter (whose birthday was last week too) sent me this article today about Leonard Cohen covers that are NOT Hallelujah. Just in case you haven't seen it--here it is:

Dear Mr Cohen I hope you had a good birthday, I wish you many more. Your contribution to my happiness and wellbeing is immeasurable. You have been given a gift and you have not wasted it. I cannot say I always smile at your music or words, as someone else has stated on this forum. I don't smile all the time, but you have made me realise that's ok. It's part of life. thank you. I saw you this year and last year in Ireland. I hope to see you next year again in Ireland. But if you don't come that's ok. You can't consider only us. Love you! Anne

My dear soul companion
It's a cliche, I know, but: I read your words, I heard your songs, and I was no longer alone. Even in hard times the beauty of your work, the truth of your spirit is there to remind me that all is not darkness, and for this I thank you from the heart.
I wish every day to be special for you. For some reason I couldn't find this thread until now, but I was thinking of you on your birthday.
It is a very moving experience for me to read all these messages to you...to feel the depth and breadth of the love that you have generated all over the world. May you remember this, and may your life be blessed every day and on through eternity. It has been thrilling to see your life unfold in the direction of peace. This is true love. We do indeed honor you in your generation; I am so glad your work has received the respect it deserves in your lifetime.

Be safe, be well, and be happy.

All my love

Sasha K.

Two birthday offerings to you, from me, with love.

SOLITUDE

invisible cords
connect us
and unseen presences
watch over us
forever


and:

LEONARD-SENSEI, LOVER EXTRAORDINAIRE, PRAY FOR US

When we were young
I said a prayer for you
It was clear, from your work
that you were in pain.
Now I see, in your work
that you know G-d better than I do
dear Leonard, would you
say a prayer for me ?

A belated happy birthday, dear Leonard,lover and teacher ( despite yourself ) and worker for peace. The world is a far better place because you are in it.
All our love
Sasha K.
