Leonard Cohen’s recitations of “A Thousand Kisses Deep” have consistently been some of the most moving moments of the Leonard Cohen World Tour concerts. The video of “A Thousand Kisses Deep” from the 2009 Dublin show has been specifically chosen because it showcases an extended version of the poem that is, to my ears, especially effective.

The poignancy of these shots of Leonard Cohen alone on the Bournemouth coast on the day after his November 11, 2008 concert there compelled this posting. The shots were submitted by James Worrall, who explains the circumstances and forthrightly indicates who should be credited with the photos in this email:
… my daughter took them [the photos]. I met him [Leonard Cohen] in the car park the day after the concert in Bournemouth, he was just heading out for a stroll down to the beach and I had been to get some change for the car park when I bumped into him and he came over to the car to meet my daughter and her boyfriend, who we’re made up. My daughter’s name is Claire Worrall and she’s a bigger fan than me and she said she would be more than happy to take all the credit for those shots.
