“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries,” the post said.

A highly respected artist known for his poetic and lyrical music, Cohen wrote a number of popular songs including the often-covered “Hallelujah.” His 14th studio album, “You Want It Darker,” was released on October 21.

Apart from his successful musical career, Cohen also wrote novels and numerous collections of poetry.

I have earlier read (without noting the source) that he was a survivor of child sexual abuse.

I loved is style of reading his works.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
