Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Forum members!

(Ice photo by Eija - bigger version at )

Eija and I wish all our members Merry Christmas and All Good Things for the New Year!

Our traditional link to Leonard singing "Silent Night" in Brighton in 1979:

It was so great to see many of you in Las Vegas! Unfortunately the days were so busy
that we did not have chance to meet & greet everybody.

Now we are looking forward to the Hydra meetup in June (I will open the list of
participants after Xmas!). On Hydra we will have more time to spend together!

Merry Christmas

To Jarkko, Eija and family plus ALL the forum members and of course, Leonard :D

May everybody have a safe and peaceful Christmas and the New Year later brings us a wonderful new album from Leonard. 8)

A great 'cool'ing photo - very pleasant to view here in hot Australia.

Once again (I know I have said this many times before) a heartfelt great, big thankyou to Jarkko and the moderators and all involved for making this the best "place in space" to be. :D

I just love hearing Silent NIght again!!

A very special MERRY CHRISTMAS to all the wonderful people on the Leonard Cohen Forum!

Eija, your photo is lovely and artistic, and I wish you and Jarkko all the best! Best wishes also to all the moderators who give of themselves so tirelessly, and of course to all the members! I feel fortunate to have met so many of you in the course of the past 3 years. My life is all the richer for knowing you, for appreciating the diversity that is part of this Forum, and for sharing our love and respect for Leonard.

Enjoy the Holidays, and may 2011 bring us joy and peace within our hearts!
