Help you make it thru the night



The above are stamps of Leonard Cohen from Finalnd.

As I wrote in What if the night is long and you are depressed, as usual? You need Leonard Cohen by your side!

Finland is issuing a stamp in the honour of Leonard Cohen. Cohen, aka the poet laureate of pessimism, the grocer of despair, the godfather of gloom, the prince of bummers, "has an enormous following in Finland, where the nights are long and depression is said to be widespread."
