Cohen knows our journey through life is a never ending exploration made up of bad times and good times requiring us to be humorous and serious, personal and political, despairing and hopeful, gentle and fierce, sweet and dark, hot and cool, whispery and substantive, accepting and defiant, contemplative and impulsive, profound and silly, weary and optimistic, disturbing and comforting, ambiguous and clear-eyed, naked and restrained, irreverent and humble, skeptical and certain, sad and triumphant, menacing and loving. Cohen is all of these. But – and perhaps this is why Cohen remains so compelling – never cynical.
