Hi Les,

Yes, you are so correct! In San Jose, he reverted back to the original words of the song! I noticed it immediately and thought...wow, that is so right for the final concert! It was certainly no mistake on his part! :D

He actually said "I did not come here tonight friends to fool you". I like to think it was directed at the forum clan. :D

Hi Mary,

You are so right! And yes, I too would like to think it may have been directed to us! :D

Thank you Mary and Diana...I couldn't remember the exact words but when I heard them and the lack of San Jose in the flow of the words...I also knew it felt right!
I was at a local music store today and had a 15% off coupon and found 7 CD's for $6.99 each of Leonard's that I don't have or some I used to have and lost along the way...(I later saw Amazon is offering close to the same price). I am thrilled and we have been listening for the last hour....I'm in heaven!
My friends...it was only 3 weeks ago we all gathered in San Jose!
Here's a toast to those wonderful 3 days together.

Hi, Mutti ( Leslie)
Ladydi (Diana)
thank you for your kind words...makes me feel good to know that my small
photocards came to the right people! :D
I made this photo here in Zürich-Switzerland Oct. 25th.08 while Leonard was
singing " Gypsy`s Wife " my alltime favorite song...
... she says my body is the light, my body is the way... what a beautiful line :)

ps. Diana...yes the Adventmarkets in Vienna are most beautiful...I grow up in
Vienna and know them very well... but the 2 Concerts in the Konzerthalle - in Vienna
Sept. 24 +25 have been the highlight for me of 2008 :D
Greetings , Susanne

I'd like to think that with that line being sung, as is, in San Jose, that Leonard chose that verbiage to send a message to everyone who attended any of his concerts on this tour... as a tour statement vs. a particular-city one... a closing comment to all ~ and I mean ALL ~ of us [I think I may be a closet socialist... I've had other indicators, as well :roll: ]. Of course, if he meant it to be for us from the Forum, who made it such a special point to be there for him, well, who here would be the first to complain. Surely not I ;-) :D . Either way is fine with me :) .

I love the different ways you've worked up your photos, John Roberts. The one of Hattie silhouetted in red with her harp is beautiful. I love the one of Dino surrounded by the light. Sharon Robinson is so damn beautiful.

Our concert was so blessed with beautiful photographs!
I'm working my way in no particular order to comment on them.

I don't think anyone's posted this wonderful video by Transmopolis. There are a few very familiar faces! :D

Mary - thanks for this!! Do we know who the videographer is? Maarten spoke really well, but someone enlighten me on who were the other concert-goers. Maarten, can you tell us who put this video together?

Best regards,
