Leonard Cohen consoles Nick Cave

Some years ago, Ben Smith painted this picture of Leonard Cohen, the sage master, serving the child-husband the blood of Jesus and the fruit of knowledge and occasionally we come across it and, well, I could not resist posting it on the Stuff Page because it reminds us of Leonard and his incredible gift and his generosity of spirit and how it flowed liquid and full, like wine and sweet too, like apples. Leonard’s dark music filled us with so much joy over the years, just so much joy and of course we are all indebted to him here at The Vampire’s Wife. It was his birthday yesterday and we remember him.
