Leonard Cohen in North Carolina

I am going to see Leonard Cohen live in concert in Durham, NC tonight! I am very excited.

Leonard Cohen was not known in South Africa and I was only recently introduced to his music by my 19 year old daughter who shares my love of listening to Leonard sing. Amy and I are going to the concert together.

My favorite Cohen quote is:

"Ring the bells that can still ring.
Forget the perfect offering.
There's a crack in everything,
that's how the light gets in."

My favorite song is "Dance me to the End of Love"

And this is Leonard in 1970 at a Woodstock style concert on the Isle of Wight. It is amazing that 39 years later, at the age of 75 he is still performing!
