Old Friend

Farewell - Raining days and Gloom go hand in glove.  Beautiful, and cathartic.  Some viewed his art as dark and problematic, but not me.  Leonard Cohen was Godsend.   His writing ability was angelic.  His Legacy was an expansive six-decade career.

"Leonard Cohen was an unparalleled artist whose stunning body of original work has been embraced by generations of fans and artists alike," it was said in a statement.

"The Sony Music Canada family joins the world in mourning Leonard Cohen's passing."

Cohen's songs included So Long Marianne, written about his lover and muse Marianne Ihlen, whom he met in Greece in the 1960s.

She also inspired the song Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye.  Recently Cohen was interviewed recently, where he talked his thoughts on death ...

     '"I am ready to die," he told The New Yorker. "I hope it's not too uncomfortable. That's about it for me."  Speaking about making arrangements for his death, he added: "At a certain point, if you still have your marbles and are not faced with serious financial challenges, you have a chance to put your house in order.

A visionary to the end.  Rest In Peace Mr. Cohen
