Leonard Cohen in Milwaukee

This is a quick sketch from my seat at the Milwaukee Theatre on March 15th as I waited for Leonard Cohen and co. to come out on stage for what was a wonderful concert.  At 78 years old he ran out on stage and literally skipped off with every exit.  It was a 3 and 1/2 hour concert and he sang almost non-stop with one intermission.  It was a really great night and the audience loved it.  He had not performed in Milwaukee in 38 years; he said he had not wanted "to make a nuisance of myself".  The image of the woman and the horse is a drawing of his projected on to a screen behind the stage.  Hopefully this little sketch will help me remember what a great time I had that night when I am 78!
