As promised here is what happend last night at my first ever Cohen concert.

I was sitting in my seat tripping and waiting for the man to start. As he came on stage it felt like everything just stopped and there was only him and the music. Throughout the first set I was in some kind of chock. I could hardly believe what I was witnessing. It was magical...well almost beyond magical. I was in awe of not only Mr. Cohen but also his phenomenal musicians and not to say the least the Webb sisters and Sharon.
For me, it was one of the most important and emotional nights in my life with a lot of smiling, crying and happiness. It was first when I woke up this morning that it came to me: I saw Leonard Cohen last night. And what a musician, performer and man he is. He was everything I imagined and more so. I can't believe after so many years of touring that he still seems to mean every single word when he is singing with such a truth in his words and integrity. There is only one of his kind in a generation that helps define a generation.

I am in love, I am happy, I am restless, I am fulfilled and everything else good this world can offer. This was truly a life changing experience. And when I get off this little cloud I'm on right now, I might be able to give a better review of the concert, but for now I am in a bliss.
