Leonard_Cohen

Today is Leonard Cohen birthday. The Canadian artist was born in QuΓ©bec on 21 September 1934.

He began his career as a poet and novelist, then he ventured into music when he was in his thirties, and is now remembered for both his literary works and his musical creations.

The year before his death (7 November 2016),Β  he began working on a new album, although he was suffering from health problems and intuitively knew that the end was near. This album, which focused on issues like death, God, and humour, was released in October 2016, when Leonard Cohen was dying.

That’s how the light gets in. 🎡

(C’è una breccia, una breccia in ogni cosa
È da lì che entra la luce)
