Adieu Leonard Cohen

So sad, a man that gave joy to so many. A true juxtaposition to the recent depressing events of so called world leaders.

My favourite Cohen song 'So Long Marianne'.

"Cohen's longtime romantic partner and muse Marianne Ihlen, a Norwegian woman he met while living on the Greek island of Hydra in the 1960s.

In July this year, on hearing she was dying, he sent her this note:"

"Well Marianne, it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And know that I've always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don't need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road."(SMH, 11 November 2016)

An artist of singular expression.

Do you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?

How sweet is the clarity of childrens' voices. Leonard would have approved I'm sure.
