How To Ask Leonard Cohen To Stay A Little Bit Longer

Like others on the Forum, I was taken by the above banner, which initially makes the point that Europe has a positive view of Leonard Cohen and then proceeds, logically enough, to extend an invitation for him to return to that region.

While impressed by the banner and sympathetic to its sentiment, I realized this morning its presentation could be further enhanced.

Subsequent to this epiphany, I put together a quick and dirty video to introduce the idea.

PS I'm hopeful we can persuade Roscoe Beck to back us up on this.

Your video is awesome, Allan! Thanks for all those cute smiles. I hope I can use the banner again next year or after the next :D I'm just not ready to let him leave yet...

Dear Allan,

So wonderful...yet again! Love the dancing parts....but my heart is also drawn to the moment he held Fred close to his heart! (Mary, that was so happy and special, and it still brings a smile to my face and a tear to my eyes.)

Thank you so much Allan...all these moments resonate in our hearts...whether Bratislava, Katowice, Florence...or Phoenix!

Thanks Dr.H. Guy for that funny clip today. If that doesn't make Leonard stay a little longer I don't know what will. :D
I am still visiting you first each day to get my daily 'fix'. Thank you for all your efforts to keep us up to date. :lol:

Thank you DrHGuy again for a great thank you video for Mr. Leonard Cohen, really really wonderful. I also love the dancing bits, expecially the sideways travelling turning his feet in and out. Never noticed that before.
