Nov. 8: Too Depressing Even For Him

Leonard Cohen has died.









(All jokes aside, I adored Cohen's poetry, his music, his brilliance, his humor, his resilience - and, of course, his flawless abilities as a ladies' man. I'll miss the fedora and the quirked smile, the darkly glittering entirety of him.)

I'm sorry, honey...he was truly a talented man - and very much a firebrand!

*HUGS YOU HARD*

He was 82, which is not a terrible age at which to die and go on, but he was always so alive that it came as a bit of a shock. I'm sure the Nov. 8 joke sounds inappropriate, but it struck me, having heard some of his subtly humorous comments in interviews, that he might have appreciated it.

Thank you for the hugs, my dear.

*hugs back*

... and here was me totally convinced that he had died tragically many years ago. Obviously, that was somebody else. /o\

I've had "but I thought they were already dead!" moments myself, so no worries. I will miss him, but his tremendous body of work will carry on. And I tend to believe he will, too, in some fashion I can't imagine.

I read he was in ill health, so not much of a surprise, but yeah, this year has been awful.

I think I was only partly joking when I quipped about the election. If I was 82 and in ill health - and as cognizant of the world and how we all affect one another as he was - I might well have decided, "This is the time for me to leave."

Yeah, 2016 has more or less sucked. More, rather than less, actually.
