Maybe it's partly my 'tired of the world' state of mind, but seeing these photos definitely made me think of this thread - radiation be damned, rescuing cats is where it's at...

Almost posted instead in the parody thread! And then figured: part of the guy's life was figuring this out before he was gone.

maybe he's so happy because he's been asking for pancakes for years and this was the first time he was allowed to have it. all the other years it just wasn't right

Leonard Cohen follows Marianne Ihlen up the mountain on the Greek island of Hydra. From James Burke's 1960 story for Life. pic.twitter.com/zmcmbFW3cH

when they said goodbye later that day, after spending much of the afternoon near the peak, Cohen said "Seeya later, Marianne" and she nodded and turned to head back down. "Wait", said Leonard Cohen. "Something doesn't seem right. Something's off." Marianne said "Our keys are back down at the bottom. With the driver". "Oh that's right," said Cohen, "thank you. Ok, see you back at the bottom, then!"

i guess i'll tweet that as a reply. basically i maintain a version of myself in 4 places now, one of which is hell

The documentary choked me up a bit... :-(
But hanging out on a small Greek island with a bunch of scruffy bohemians is definitely on my bucket list

Hey guys,
I want to wish you all the best for the New Year. I’m sure some of you were at the shows. I really enjoyed playing to you all again! Thank you for coming. Take care of yourselves.

He’s successfully avoided the trap of remaining caught in the classic Keith Richards ‘elegantly wasted’ look, unlike some of his admirers in the industry.
