Hello from almost the other side of a nasty throat infection.
Guess all the coughing and sneezing on the airplanes got me... (Such a nice welcome home..
what a beautiful idea, to plant the tree at Lissadell.
It truly belongs there.
If it's not too late, I'd like to suggest an edit to the text.
I thought that adding the context of the concerts would make it more eternal (and couldn't resist the "Born in Chains" context.. I'm too in awe of this song)
English isn't my mother tongue and I'm no poet, so I hope this makes sense:
CORNER OF LISSADELL FOREVER LEONARD COHEN.
A wordsmith, a poet,
thanks for passing by,
on a summer weekend
forever written on our hearts,
L. Cohen Forum, July 2010.
Also, I'd like to join all the members that have suggested to contribute to covering the costs of the plaque, tree, driving to Lissadell, etc. I am sure we can find a way to do it.
Next, some photos on the report thread.
