    Okay, I’ll bite: what’s a DAB?
    I’m in awe of how many pics there are of LC throughout his life either squatting or on his knees. No wonder he could kneel and get up effortlessly at concerts when he was in his late 70’s.
    I stopped squatting when I was around 8 years old–and even then only when I was planted in front of our tiny tv screen in our Chicago apartment watching “The Storyteller” in the late afternoon. That became an untenable physical position for me from 8 yrs. old on.
    I guess it’s just one more proof of the old maxim: use it or lose it.

      According to the ever helpful Wikipedia, “Dabbing, or the dab, is a simple dance move or playful gesture, in which a person drops their head into the bent crook of a slanted arm, while raising the opposite arm in a parallel direction but out straight. The move looks similar to someone sneezing into the “inside” of the elbow.” Photos of Leonard Cohen squatting are indeed numerous and, were it not for those annoying copyright restrictions, I would post a couple dozen for our mutual amusement.
