Listening to So Long, Marianne by Leonard CohenThe Essential Leonard Cohen, 1967
RaniRani: Nampaknya dunia sedang dipayungi kemurungan. Tentu saja Trump masuk dalam hitungan sebagaimana perang yang menyebabkan pengungsi merangsek ke Eropa dan fenomena sosial yang mengikutinya serta keyakinan buta sekelompok orang tentang apa itu kebenaran yg harus dibela di tanah air saat ini.

Kemurungan kali ini bertambah karena dunia kehilangan a musician, a novelist and a poet; Leonard Cohen. Walau dia sudah siap sebagaimana surat yg ia tulis kepada Marianne Ihlen beberapa saat sebelum Marianne meninggal dunia. Marianne adalah kekasih dan muse untuk lagu-lagu Cohen, termasuk lagu So Long Marianne ini.

"Well Marianne it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. And you know that I've always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don’t need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.
— Leonard Cohen

Kurang dari 4 bulan kemudian Cohen menyusul Marianne, His endless love..

Rest in Peace..
