In September 1995 I launched The Leonard Cohen Files.

A quarter of century full of memorable moments: new friends around the world,
concerts, Events, meet-ups on Hydra and elsewhere, Walking weekends and other gatherings...
Thanks to all for joining!

A huge thank you from me, Jarkko.
You have created an amazing Cohen Encyclopedia for us all, and for those poor unfortunate people who have still to discover Leonard and the Files.
Best wishes for the future,

Alan

Congratulations, Jarkko. Might sound like an exaggeration but it isn't: finding this place changed my life forever and I can't be grateful enough.

Dear Jarkko, Eija, and all the "elves,"

An apt expression of thanks may be to repeat what Winston Churchill had to say about the RAF fifty-five years and 14 days before the day you launched The Leonard Cohen Files:

"Never has so much been owed by so many to so few."

Thanks, Jarkko, for everything that you have done all these years. You've created a wonderful place that has kept Leonard's songs --- and his other works -- alive, as well as allowing people from all over the world to connect with each other to share in our common love of Leonard Cohen! Three cheers to you, and all the very best!

Dear Jarkko,
I know I have said thank you many, many times over the years and I’ll never stop saying it! In fact, my third post here was done to say exactly only that! So grateful that you began The Files and all that it led to for me and all of us :D

Congratulations to 25 wonderful years!!!

EDIT:
If my calculations are correct, starting The Files in Sept 1995 would have been an excellent one week early 61st birthday present for Leonard :)
