Father’s Day Photo & Greeting From Leonard Cohen – 2016


Happy Father’s Day!quotedown2


Leonard sends Father’s Day greetings and this brilliant photo of himself reading to his children, Lorca & Adam (along with a kitten clutched by Adam) at their home in Hydra.

2018 Update: Leonard sent this Father’s Day photo and greeting my way at this time two years ago (2016). It immediately became one of my favorite shots of Leonard and his children. Now, the fact that he took the time and effort to search out and forward this photo when he was already in pain and all but incapacitated by the illness that led to his death renders this image all the more poignant and moving.

Introduction: Things Cohenites Like Most About Leonard Cohen

The paradoxical popularity of Things Cohenites Don’t Like About Leonard Cohen has prompted a consideration of a decade of writing about Leonard on my own sites and turns posting on LeonardCohenForum, Facebook fan groups, YouTube, and the official Leonard Cohen Facebook page, to determine1 which aspects of Leonard Cohen’s life and work are most favored by fans.

Note: For the purpose of this series, I’ve eliminated what could be described as “breaking news,” e.g., announcements about album releases, tours, books, etc.

#1 Photos Of Leonard Cohen

Yep, the most popular category of Leonard Cohen posts are photos of him. (And, yes, “Photos,” “Spiritual Themes,” and “The Women In His Life” aren’t parallel categories, but that’s how the stats play out.) Moreover, it’s not performance photos that draw the most views; it’s the candid and posed photos. While adding photos to Leonard Cohen quotations routinely doubles or triples the number of hits, isolated photos without dates, locations, names of photographers, or attribution also do well. Fifteen of the most popular photos posted to Cohencentric follow.
