Leonard Cohen dead and Donald Trump in the White House.
I want to curl up into a ball and cry.
Canadian compatriot from Montreal, Leonard Cohen’s soulful, bewitching songwriting was a part of my growing-up years. Goodbye, you beautiful man. Thank you for the grace you gave us in this crass, sometimes ugly world.
So sad. Two big blows to civility in such a short time.
I know. Who do we turn to now for nourishment and inspiration?
One by one they leave us, the important companions of our early years (and later years too, because I’ve been listening to You Want It Darker, and it’s ravishing).
Like David Bowie’s last album to us, this was his. The world is indeed darker without them.
