RIP Leonard Cohen…
21 September 1934 – 10 November 2016
While my middle-aged Indonesian neighbour lady often has a Beatles tape playing on Sundays as she hangs out her washing, my own preference has been to find Leonard Cohen’s Greatest Hits on You Tube and let those beautiful songs ripple across the little park across the street.
That one about the Chelsea Hotel (in New York) always made me smile…
….not so much for the lyrics but for the interview, when he was asked if the reference to his and Janis Joplin’s fun and games had upset Janis.
“Not much,” I think his response went, ” but my Mother…!”
- I’ll miss him, but, as is the case with all great artists, his works will live on, and be enjoyed by millions.
