Have a Chelsea photo you guys might enjoy. This picture was taken during the three hour tour written up by Tina Sussman for the LATimes. It is just one of the current hotel rooms. Esther, as it happens, is on the couch under the window. Tina is the lady in orange taking notes. The man in black in front of the mirror is the hotel tour guide, Jerry Weinstein. One of those happy coincidences.

Okay Dick, I'm now moving to post 754... ;-)

Simply a suggestion, but whenever the plaque is ready to be installed, perhaps there could be another NY meetup..yes? I know that many fans from the east coast and midwest would probably attend and it could be sort of cool. Sort of an unplanned (but "planned") Leonard get-together! Even if there were only 30 of us it would be awesome! We would have to include someone who can sing!

Best regards,
Diana

Thanks Di and Leonard

I agree completely

BUT am simply in no position to name a time yet ... any volunteer meet-up organizers, and ceremony planners, let me know who you are and I will send you progress reports. Have a couple of thoughts, but am not willing to share them until I have some more sure time frame. When will be a key factor.

OK?

Hi Dick ~

I want to mail my money [$20] to you directly and was thinking you'd posted an address for that. Apparently not? At least I can't find it. Could you PM me with it, then? It'll go out in Monday's mail.

Thanks.

Hi Dick,

Great idea and I'm more than happy to take part. Have just sent $10 through Paypal. It was easier than I thought!

All the best,

Eric.

Hi Dick,

The plaque is a great idea for Leonard's birthday gift!

Hello Dick,

Thank you for this beautiful idea to give Leonard his own plaque at the Chelsea Hotel. If anyone deserves it, it's Leonard Cohen. I have just sent you $10.00 USD through PayPal.

Thanks again,
Inge

Thanks all for kudos

Not sure it was my idea first... Jarkko and I ...and Marie.. have been discussing for quite some time. Before even the NY Event in 2004 I think. Just tales me awhile sometimes to complete a project :D

Like the Master finishing a song???

Again.... thanks all.

Well, sometimes it is indeed these comparatively slow approaches which lead to the best results, as we all know! ;-) And you are just as humble as the Master, so - thank you and hats off!

What a wonderful idea!

Dick - Thanks very much for arranging all this. I just sent you $10.00 via paypal.

I would like to think that one day I would make it to the Chelsea Hotel to see the plaque in situ.

Thanks again

Lorelei.....getting excited at the thought of seeing Leonard in Liverpool next week. My tickets arrived yesterday (Phew :!: :!: :!: )
