We listened to ALMOST LIKE THE BLUES, the new LC’s incantatory illumination of our deeply wounded humanity and couldn’t resist making Him one early 80th birthday offering.
In fact, this work of ours is intended to be more like a COHENESQUE 80th BIRTHDAY LOOT BAG, to be given to people everywhere to take to their homes, to their hearts, souls and minds.
OUR “ALMOST LIKE THE BLUES, Chords of Salvation for People Everywhere”, Existentialist Pictovideo, is a tribute to Leonard Cohen, our Great Professor of Love, Art and Empathy. To our Great Professor of Vital Alchemy meant to transform Pain into Joy, and Desperation into a Song, a Poem, a Memory. Almost like the blues…
We are convinced that our visual rendition of LC’s quintessential message will find its way to people’s hearts everywhere.
We also strongly believe that the one predestined to completely decipher its graphic symbolism, is Leonard Cohen himself.
Happy early 80th Birthday, LC!
With translucent reverence ,
