Sad news last night, hearing that Leonard Cohen had passed away. Long one of my favourite singers, one of my favourite poets, someone whose music gave great comfort and inspiration over the years, his passing leaves a great emptiness.  He gave us light, he gave us darkness too, along with wisdom, questions and humour.



There are many tributes this day to the man. All of them more eloquent than what I might say. Here are links to several that touched the heart today.


From Stephen Jenkinson, at Orphan Wisdom, there is Darker, Still:

From Topology Magazine’s Daily Asterisk, the lyrics to a song from Leonard Cohen’s newest album: You Want It Darker  and one to a YouTube video of Leonard Cohen singing this song
