Q: Will there be more albums [after Thanks For The Dance]? “No, that’s all. That’s all that’s left. There’s no more. It’s not another death album, when usually someone tries to make a few divorces from the death of a great artist, and then every single scrap and sideshow and scribble and sell-out goes to people.” Adam Cohen

It’s hard for me to talk about it, but I’m going to say something that may sound strange. I want to confess what only those who lost their parents can understand and play in our secret club. The truth is: we live with them. Six to seven months after I wanted to stay with Dad. Of course, I see him in my dreams. And these are not comforting dreams. You actually fall into a terrible ruse here: The world believes that Leonard Cohen is dead, but he really wasn’t! With him, and that’s what happens to you, when you open the device and its voice covers you, thick and warm, like a blanket.

“The World Believes That Leonard Cohen Is Dead, But He Really Isn’t!” by Yehuda Nuriel in Israel’s Yediot Aharonot. Via Google Translate.

Thanks to Guy Tal, who alerted me to this article.

  1. Adam, my father was such an important, significant person in my life i wondered how the world would go on without him in it. Its been almost 20 years. I still have conversations with him.

  2. If we pay attention, we can sense the presence of an parent passed on from time to time. My mother (105) said: “I`ll be there watching over you”,and so it goes.

  3. I became a feeling of being an orphan after my last parent passed on. 10-20 years down the line, we still have conversations. Thanks for the special words.
