Happy Birthday, Leonard Cohen,
for more than 40 years your music was with me and helped me along the way. For this I am so grateful to you.
On the 21 st I will light my thin green and violet candle from Barcelona and Marseille and think of two very wonderful events.
Have a very happy day.

for the past few years, I have been part of the audience who sang happy Birthday to you on your Birthday concert.
This year , even though I will not be in the same City, Country or even Continent, you will be in my mind as I raise a glass with my wife Marie, to toast your extraordinary talent and to wish you good health and happiness for the Future.

Happy Birthday Leonard.

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday! May your day and years be filled with joy, laughter, love and peace.

With gratitude for all you've given us,
You let me sing, you lifted me up, you gave my soul a beam to travel on. You folded your distance back into my heart.

Only three more years to go then.

Leonard told Vicomtesse and I last year that he would start smoking again at 80 :lol:
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Happy Birthday, dear Leonard,

Thank you for your songs, your words of wisdom, your attitude, and your generosity, by which you gave me such dear friends and the most special person I've ever met.
May there always be someone to work for your smile.

With love,

Dear Leonard,

Well another year has gone by and here I am again with my birthday gift to you of a portrait. In the last few years coincidentally you have a new album pending at this time of the year which inspires my birthday drawings to you! This year it is “Old Ideas” so I thought a comparison with old and young would be a good ‘old (new) idea’. Maybe some of the new songs were originally old ideas. From the past to the present......looking backward to look forward.

There are about forty years gathered together here in the space between these two faces. So many wonderful words of song and poetry in that time. You have shared lots of them with us and for that you have my gratitude forever. I can’t imagine a day without your words in it. I find words that soak into my ears are whispered not yelled.....and hopefully my pastel artwork will do the same for you. Hear through my hand the passing years and the timeless sounds of the shadows.
Listen with your eyes.......
Suzanne takes you down......

Happy Birthday Leonard and stay very close to Roshi for he obviously has the secret of longevity!
I wish for you everything you would wish for yourself. Have a wonderful day with your family and friends and all good things for the new album.

Take Care,
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!

Happy Birthday, dear Leonard!
I hope next year we can sing Happy Birthday to you again, just like in Barcelona 2 years ago (or some lucky sods in France last year). Be careful with strenuous exercises as we can't wait to see the kid with a crazy dream on stage again. May love keep the darkness away from you.

Love and kisses,

You're an inspiration and ,like most people on this forum, I listen to your voice every day.It was a real surprise to hear my youngest daughter sing," i crawl to you baby like a dog in heat...." from the back of the car but we're hoping she's forgotten.
Best wishes and i'm still amazed at how you can see a camera lens at a concert and gaze straight at it to the extent that the same daughter was convinced your photograph stared at her every time she passed it.
Many, many congratulations.
