I never met Leonard Cohen until I read his obituary. Then I met him through his poetry, songs, interviews, videos and many pictures on the Internet. I fell madly in love with him. I've read 3 biographies of him so far and soon to start a 4th. What a wonderful man, poet, song writer and singer. His songs bring me peace.
