Just got back from my girls’ day/night out downtown, Montréal.
The weather was beautiful, I was in great company… We had a blast! We spent almost six full hours at the Leonard Cohen exhibition. I laughed, I cried… And I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow! (a bit tired right now, sorry)
I just wanted to leave you a short interview anecdote, that really made me giggle. Because, though he often gave the impression of being a dark, tortured soul, Leonard had a witty sense of humor, and here’s an example of it.
Leonard Cohen: I considered changing my name…
Interviewer: Oh really? To what?
Leonard Cohen: September…
Interviewer: September? Leonard September?
Leonard Cohen: No… *spark of amusement in his eyes* September Cohen!
Leonard Cohen: I always thought I would change my name and get a tattoo.
Leonard Cohen: There’s this place on St. Lawrence Blvd.
(not quoting word for word, but probably pretty close to the original conversation, hehe)
