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.
