part3-of-trilogy

The complete title and description of the video offered by the authors follow:

“Hallelujah On Fire”, dedicated to LC.
A Cohenesc voyage to the end of the begining of…
Venus Of Urbino, an enigmatic leitmotif of sensuality
in the famous ironic window of the holy and the broken.
nonexplanatory visual hymn of love, beauty, sex, betrayal, death,
faith and surrender.

Dr Heck Note: Viewers will, I believe, find their experience of this work enhanced by taking a look at the discussion and presentation of the two earlier parts of Oana Cajal’s Leonard Cohen-inspired Longing Trilogy videos posted at

Leonard Cohen’s 80th Birthday Trilogy – Part 3

Oana and Stefan Cajal, whose evocative, Leonard Cohen-themed videos have been cherished features at Cohencentric write

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 ,

Video: “So Long Marianne, Invocation Of The Muse” – Prelude 2 To Leonard Cohen’s 80th Birthday Celebration

mariannevidNote: This video was originally posted Aug 22, 2014 at DrHGuy.com, a predecessor of Cohencentric, as the second in a trilogy of videos celebrating the 80th birthday of Leonard Cohen. This is the sequel to  Chelsea Hotel, Cohenesque Reminiscence By Oana And Stefan Cajal. The final video in the trilogy is Leonard Cohen’s Almost Like The Blues, Chords Of Salvation For People Everywhere.

From Oana and Stefan Cajal:

“Everybody’s youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.” F.Scott Fitzgerald

The visuals in SO LONG MARIANNE, are my graphic art confessions about the dream and madness of youth. Paradigms of Essential Longing, conjuring LC’s beloved memories of his enchanted Island of Love and Inspired Verse.

They are Incantation Postcards to Leonard Cohen’s Youth, to my Youth, to your Youth, to everybody’s Youth.

I wish that, in our present world darkened by senseless pain and despair, Leonard Cohen ‘s message of love and empathy will travel far and bring a ray of light to those thirsty for beauty and hope.

I also wish we could offer the Troubadour of Longing, an unique gift for his 80th Birthday: THE ESSENTIAL LEONARD COHEN LONGING FELLOWSHIP! To be awarded annually to a bright, talented Longingner, to enable Him or Her to spent a month on the island of Hydra. Longing, dreaming, writing verse…

I hear from across Time, the voice of W.B.Yeats telling me:
“Take, if you must, this little Bag of Dreams, Unloose the cord and they would wrap You round”
