    "One is distracted by this notion that there is such a thing as inspiration, that it comes fast and easy. And some people are graced by that style. I’m not. So I have to work as hard as any stiff, to come up with my payload."

    Yes, it's from 2014 and sadly Leonard is no longer with us, but I saw this shared on FB earlier and it's too good not to share here.

    great interview, as most every interview with the amazing Leonard Cohen was! So glad I got to see him in concert, in about 2011 or so.
    Played over three hours, something like 35 songs!

    I definitely agree with that sentiment, @headfirstonly. Some days, we just gotta sit down and get to work
