“I never met a woman until I was 65” Leonard Cohen; “And I was the one standing there when that idea occurred to him” Anjani Thomas

Everything changes as you get older. I never met a woman until I was 65. Instead, I saw all kinds of miracles in front of me … [I] always appreciated what they could do for me … [but saw them through my own] urgent needs and desires. Once that started to dissolve, I began to see the woman standing there.
