Thanks Marie, for the above recent photo. This line enters my head -

"My priests they will put flowers there"

I love it too. Thank you so much for sharing.

ps: thank you also for the "Priests" reference....
one of my favourite songs by Judy Collins, written but never recorded by Leonard Cohen :

Hi Brucester,
I thought you might be interested in this comment

and the whole thread too.

Maybe LC's recording is still lurking somewhere hidden in his other effects just waiting to see the light :)

Thanks a million, B4real, lots of fantastic reading !!! WOW !!!

Yes, I have always been interested in "Priests"....
=> especially since it's been such a long time I confessed to anything !!! :D (forgive my Canadian humour)

ps: If I find out about an LC version of this song, I will definitely post it here.
It is quite possible Judy Collins might have a copy of Leonard's tape hiding somewhere.

I wrote to Judy after her son Clark's suicide (Jan/1992), and we've kept in touch for about a month or so.
She loved my letters and even sent me one of her Concert Souvenir program books (signed).
Trouble is, it seems like a hundred years ago.

Judy's song to her son, Clark (1959-1992) :

Wings of angels
Tears of saints
Prayers and promises won't bring you back
Come to me in dreams again ~~ Judy Collins ~~
