The “Memories” section of Facebook informed me that my February 14, 2015 post was

As some of you already know, DrHGuy.com is now closed and 1HeckOfAGuy.com will close in a couple of days. I apologize for the abrupt termination. The reasons, which have accumulated over time, are too complex, painful, and sad to go into. As Leonard once said about losing his retirement fund, “It’s enough to put a dent in your mood.”

I have hopes of resurrecting a Leonard Cohen site at some point…

I appreciate the kind thoughts and good wishes extended by many readers.

Indeed, after nine years of publishing, 1HeckOfAGuy.com, for all practical purposes,1 closed within 48 hours.

And, with encouragement from Leonard, Cohencentric.com arose from the ashes less than a month later.  Wacky stuff, eh? On March 7, 2018 – 6,000+ posts and nearly 4,000,000 hits later – Cohencentric will celebrate its third anniversary online. But, things are changing, so …. stay tuned.
