Cry and Laugh about it All Again

  1. Last night, after I posted my list, my husband and I went to see Leonard Cohen in Louisville KY…
  2.  my favorite musician. We found our seats and waited for the show to start, and I was so excited and grateful tears were welling up in my eyes…
  3. He came on stage and started singing “Dance Me to the End of Love” and I lost it, I was bawling, happy tears
  4. He was wonderful, sang all my favorites (Suzanne, Going Home, Dance Me, Blue Raincoat, So Long Marianne, Take this Waltz, and of course Hallelujah)
  5. Which are others’ favorites as well- after So Long Marianne, one woman yelled over the applause, “BEST EASTER EVER!” -I couldn’t agree more!
  6. I never imagined when I fell in love with his songs so many years ago that one day I’d see and hear him live…never thought to ask for such a wonderful gift
  7. I bought his book of poems, Book of Longing, which he wrote while studying Zen at Mount Baldy, and is incredible
  8. If possible, it makes me love Zen and Leonard both more
  9. My incredible husband, for making the trip possible
  10. My absolutely incredible friends, Julie and Elle, who roadtripped with us (over Easter!) and helped in so many ways

“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Anthem, Leonard Cohen
