A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and His Words
...You are playing to people who have experienced a catastrophe.
This should make you very quiet.
Speak the words, convey the data, step aside.
Everyone knows you are in pain.
You cannot tell the audience everything you know about love
in every line of love you speak.
Step aside and they will know what you know
because they know it already.
You have nothing to teach them...

We are so lightly here.
It is in love that we are made;
In love we disappear.
Though all the maps of blood and flesh
Are posted on the door,
There's no one who has told us yet
What Boogie Street is for.

The sole purpose of this site is to provide Cohen fans
everywhere an opportunity to gain further insights and pleasure

I hope that the writers and photographers who's work
is featured in these pages, as well as the magazines which
published those works, will forgive the insatiable desire
of fans to lay their hands upon anything
concerning the work and words of Leonard Cohen.
I wish to thank Jarkko Arjatsalo and Dick Straub
for their encouragement and kindness and
Patrice Clos for knowing my heart.
And there are not enough ways to say thank you
to Leonard Cohen for the joy and comfort
his work has provided me.
