TO LEONARD COHEN ON HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY.
Happy 80th Leonard. You have taught us all that behind the grand gestures it’s the little moments that count.
In terms of worldly things:
A cracked smile. A swift, short and kind answer. A warm blanket on a cold night out on the porch.
I will forever cherish and hold these brief but intimate times very close to my heart.
Thanks for that.
In terms of your work:
Your turning of a phrase, every time, is akin to turning towards an old friend and hitting the eternal bliss of the moment. Every time.
This, the world thanks you for.
