Between Holidays

 I saw the advertisement for this one-night-only appearance of one of my favorite people...coincidentally, also one of my son's.  I have followed Leonard Cohen's poetry since college and, more recently, his poetic songs.   So, the day before his one-night performance in Detroit I started checking for tickets.  I was able to score a pair from a reseller of tickets unwanted, probably by a season ticket holder.
 My son was thrilled and I was more than happy to have someone to go with me to the concert.  I would never have gone alone and he knows Detroit so well!
Leonard did not disappoint.  He is in excellent shape for late in his 70s, jogging onstage, giving us a solid 4 hours of music with a short intermission and sprinting off-stage at the end after many encores.  Just amazing.

Another reason to come back was the holiday doings with the two granddaughters.  We have never missed a Christmas program and this wasn't the year to start.  They were so cute and the program was well put together and well rehearsed. I would so hate to miss a school Christmas program.
