"I am 66 and became aware of Leonard Cohen when at a family reunion in Cleveland when I was about 12 years old. An older cousin from Arizona was working for Green Peace and travelling to Europe to do some good. She told us of this man who was philosopher, songwriter, activist and teacher. His name was Leonard Cohen. I have admired him for his genius in all of the above traits ever since. He seems to see and experience life as it comes to him and adapts and grows along with it. Ever changing… ever challenging… ever beautiful. When I put my hand in our oceans waters and feel the energy and life that it gives me I could think of Leonard Cohen his energy and how his artistry has changed but his spirit always remains the same."
