Q: Has [Leonard Cohen] become more gentle in old age? Anjani: “No, rather sharper, more intense. He has no time to lose and works very concentrated on the things he still wants to do…” (2007)

Has he [Leonard Cohen] become more gentle in old age?

No, rather sharper, more intense. He has no time to lose and works very concentrated on the things he still wants to do. Unfortunately, this means that he does not have much leisure for contacts. We spend time with our families, with their children and his grandson. But we do not go to parties and have no big circle of friends either. Actually, we work mostly. A very simple life.
