    I Was Shaking In A Cafe...

     disturbed because my husband at that time told me everything that he thought was wrong with me and how unhappy he was.I went to the cafe to read the paper, look for a divorce lawyer in the classifieds. I could hardly hold my cup of coffee. Next I knew a man was serenading me...

    Closing Time

    My favorite companion is a hundred but she's wearing something tight. I can't be the only person who sees the humor in Lenny Cohen. It's hidden behind a few dark clouds and anti depressants, but it's there.

    Love This Man!

    I think Leanord Cohen has the sexiest voice and adore his lyrics.  His voice sounds better to me now than it did when he was much younger.

    Aging Wonderfully

    This might be Cohen at his very best. A couple of video issues but the sound is terrific and the performance genuinely memorable. http://youtu.be/EidJV2mb9h8

    Uplifting Music

    I know some people might find Leonard Cohen's music depresing but if I feel depresed his music drags me back if that makes any sense a lot of his music just sounds so personal and he is a very good storyteller in my eyes a true talent.

    Because.

    Because he's a ******* genius that's why. People think he's just morose but he has a great sense of humor, you've got to listen to Tower of Song. His lyrics are brilliant. I guess that comes from having been a poet and novelist. I've read all his books of poetry, and they are...

    I Have A Friend Who Is Fascinated By Him

    Women And Leonard
