Leonard Cohen dies aged 82

On the 15th October 2016 I wrote a post about one of Leonard Cohen’s last interviews when he stated that he was “ready to die” and that he hoped “it’s not too uncomfortable”. Although he had not admitted to an illness at that time his death this week makes me wonder if  he knew he was reaching the end of his life.  If so, I hope that he managed to have the death he wanted and that it was comfortable and on his own terms.  And I hope that talking about death in the way that he did helped him to realise this.  It’s a great example of what we should all be doing.
