Why you just gotta love Leonard…

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)

Interviewer: Where?

Leonard Cohen: There’s this place on St. Lawrence Blvd.

Interviewer:

 

 

(not quoting word for word, but probably pretty close to the original conversation, hehe)
