‘Hallelujah’!

For the first time since 2002, I actually have tickets to an upcoming concert! And it’s a doozie! Leonard Cohen in Seattle, April 23rd! yay! I’m going with my friend Brad, who is the biggest Leonard Cohen fan I know besides myself.

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime amazing concert, I just know it. I’ve idolized Leonard Cohen for so long. His outlook, his career, his gift with the written word, his love of poetry. He truly agonizes over choosing just the right words when expressing a thought. Not just for their meaning, but for their sound – the aesthetic beauty of the words themselves. And not only does it show in his work, but it impresses me so much as an avid appreciator of well-crafted prose and poetry.

Here is a Review of Leonard Cohen I wrote a couple of years ago that pretty much sums it all up.

Oh, and this: I’M SO EXCITED! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    leonard cohen puts me to sleep. i’m not being facetious, it’s his voice. he’s got one of those very low voices that manages to hit whatever tone is just right to lull me to sleep. it’s downright embarrassing to start nodding off when one of his songs plays on the radio or stereo.
