Leonard,

I just put your CD on. I often do it. You see you are like a Gibran to me. Someone to follow, someone to find calm. You can search for love anywhere. Sometimes you find it - explicit, crisp, raw. Sometimes you just eat it all up and then get offered seconds.

At this milestone I wish you much, but mainly I wish you happiness. May Esther be close today.

Thank you so,
Adam

Dear Leonard,

I wish you a very happy birthday, and even though you do not celebrate it at all, as you've said, take it as an alibi to light your first cigarrette after so many years.

My best present in life is to be living in the same period as you, so I've had the great pleasure of having access to your entire work. Thank you so much for having kept it alive throughout all these years for us to enjoy and give our lives a deeper meaning.

Hope you like my birthday present, my covers of Hunter's Lullaby and Almost Like The Blues, which I recorded for a Russian Tribute Project for you, which is going to be posted today throughout the day (Russian Website http://www.lcohen.ru) as your birthday present from the Russian Community and me (deeply honoured) as guest (I'm from Spain), .

My best wishes.

Sincerely,
a faithful worshiper fan ;-)

Picasso once said that it takes a long time to become young. Reckon we all see that you became what you are...

Wait another 10 years to start smoking, even though i donĀ“t know what I am talking about. ...

Sincere blessing for you and your beloved ones.

Happy birthday, by the way and thank you for your hard work
