U of T’s Leonard Cohen collection digs up diamonds in the mine

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/mu ... e37429031/
published by Cathal Kelly
Within the library of Leonard Cohen’s materials, what may strike you isn’t uncommonness, but familiarity. This is largely seen in his letters to his mother, in which he seems most true.

Cohen's presentation to the world can be found in his work, but his interior self is contained in these random pieces of paper he squirrelled away.
Like Cohen, we all have our own boxes – of love letters, photo albums, concert tickets, Polaroids, all the detritus of experience, most of it printed, that one accumulates through a lifetime. But few of us have taken this much trouble to preserve it.

Vickie and Judy,
I’m glad you both enjoyed that :D I found it quite thought provoking!
I received the link a few days ago as an LC email alert.
