Books / Leonard Cohen / Music

“Although he had been brought up with so much, Leonard [Cohen] was happy with very little.

He thrived in the Mediterranean climate. Every morning he would rise with the sun, just as the local workmen did, and start his work. After a few hours writing he would walk down the narrow, winding streets, a towel flung over one shoulder, to swim in the sea. […] At night he walked back again to the port, where there was always someone to talk to.”

This is about Leonard Cohen in Hydra, where he meets Marianne, and even buys a house.
