Leonard's thank-you for the shower of polka dots

Postby jarkko » Tue Nov 24, 2009 11:09 pm

FROM LEONARD:
Dear Jarkko

Please thank all our friends
for the beautiful shower of polka dots

that we danced upon
in San Jose and over the many years before

when our step was not so high

With deep appreciation
Leonard

Oh dear...this is on two threads. I am still overcome with Leonard's response! Did reply at length on the San Jose thread, but once again....dear Jarkko, thank you so much and I hope Leonard will be able to view all our various comments!

Love his wording....so very Leonard!

I am so touched and thrilled that Leonard loved the 'shower of polka dots'.
I also am so grateful that he thanked us himself. It makes it so personal.
Thank you Jarkko for posting this.
I love the mystery of the poetic nature that this is written. So from his heart...
Thank you Leonard for your music, your words and just being YOU!

What great feedback from the Man. I wish I could have been there to see this I am sure it will haunt him every time he sings Closing Time and make him laugh.
