:lol: I was standing at that spot because I had my recording device perched on a cement brick there, to steady it, with the mics facing into the gap to pick up the sound better. And then when it started to rain, I was standing close to the recorder (& therefore, close to the gap) to shield it from the raindrops, & Bob was holding his shirt over it, until he thought of putting his little hat over it. . . I must confess that I did look through the gap a few times, though, as I was standing there, hoping beyond any reasonable hope that I might see something, while knowing very well that it was not possible. . .

I just got home a little while ago, & am too exhausted to say very much right now, but I went to the first 3 concerts (& the first 2 soundchecks), & every moment of every one of them was absolutely gorgeous, brilliant & awesome!! I love the new sound of the band, the King of the Violin & Mitch Watkins are both wonderful - giving excellent, lovely interpretations to Leonard's songs, Leonard looks beautiful & sounds incredible - more awesome than ever!! It's totally amazing to see/hear live performances of all those great songs from Old Ideas, as well as Light As A Breeze, which was absolutely ecstatic, to say the least; & Leonard's performance of Save The Last Dance is unbelievably sexy & beautiful. He did Crazy To Love You in a deeper pitch than on the album, which makes it even more profound, intense & mesmerizing. That's all I can write for now, except to say: thank you, Leonard Cohen, for coming back to us & once again, penetrating my heart more deeply than ever, with your great brilliant gifts of poetry & song.
