TO LEONARD COHEN ON HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY.
Sep 21, 2014
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.Love Rufus.
