Leonard Cohen wasted no time Saturday night at the Louisville Palace. He jogged on stage, light on his feet in an immaculate suit, and began singing about what is perhaps his work’s dominant theme: the power of love to heal, destroy, sustain and inspire…There were moments when Cohen got dark, in that matter of fact way perfected over a lifetime of writing, and moments defined by his dry sense of humor, but all of it was ultimately a kind of celebration. As Cohen has aged — he’s a graceful 78 — the not so simple act of survival, of living to try another day, has become something he champions.
