You read my name twice...must be my day.
Glad you insist in waiting for your 90's to start again.

Feel so priveleged that this great man has actually read my name. Am so glad he is not going back to smoking. And I owe Leonard my life - I suffer from depression and Dress Rehearsal Rag has enabled me t keep going on more than one occasion when I wanted to die. Anything I could do for him I would. And i hope that when I enter old age cheerfulness will keep breaking through

Smiling (and teary-eyed).

What a lovely community you've created, Jarkko.

Dear Leonard
Your message really touched me. I remember meeting you in the hotel at Weybridge, which is when I discovered so much more about you, your intriguing poetry and music. My life was changed. I wear a permanent smile, I speak Cohen, and have met so many friends. It is going to be wonderful to visit your bench on Hydra, and gaze at the moon.

Chrissie
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind
