Leonard Cohen & Cohencidences …

It just goes to show: when you pen the lyrical depths of the soul like no one else can, take a single instrument into the studio and sing your aching soul bare, no matter how many decades old you are, you’re god. Half the country is lined up to worship your album  – and it’s not even released!  That’s a Cohencidence.

Now don’t get a Cohencidence confused with an ordinary synchronicity. It’s much more than that! When Leonard writes, when Leonard sings, and you happen to hear him, that’s a Cohencidence: an incident of note; a precedence with a life-lasting consequence … Already I’ve run out of words, and that’s something for a Gemini!

How Cohencidently my man and I were affected hearing a track from Leonard’s new album, Old Ideas, on National Radio! We’re off to buy it – the physical CD too. We want to turn the jewel case inside out, read every credit and lyric, hold it in our hands … Most of all we want to listen … to bask …

And we want to hear about your Cohencidences … Did you go to the concert? Have you seen the London DVD? Have you recovered yet? – (since a Cohencidence is something one usually doesn’t recover from – one’s soul is left threadbare in places) … What are your most Cohencidental tracks? Any chance Baby Boomer Girl could get a spot at his next show, ya’ reckon? (since she almost qualifies, decade-wise 🙂
