Happy 60th to the Godfather of Cohenites!

I know you had a perfect birthday with Eija and friends in Ghent, and you look so happy on all the photos. Just a kid with a crazy dream - come true! I wish you many many busy, healthy and happy years ahead.

Many forum members have sent Jarkko birthday greetings for his 60th, good wishes he so well deserved. Only a few know that Jarkko in his secret life is a passionate air guitar player and will take part in this years world championship in Oulu, Finnland. It's his premiere goal to make it to the top 3 in this years competition which will be decided today. He is one of the four dark horses to challenge the current champion. Please send all good vibes again in his direction, he so much needs it today.

Jarrko turned 60? Well, that explains his "senior moment" at the Krakow Event. He arrived at the Krakow registration wearing a Hydra tee-shirt. Jarkko, the Hydra Meetup is not until next year, June 2011.

Happy Birthday again, Jarkko. And mega thanks for all your hard work and everything you do.

Well Arlene, that was a "bridge" t shirt, from one event to the next.

Please someone post a YouTube of the air guitar competition!

Unified Hearts

somewhere along
purpose found itself
found fact in fiction
desire from want

on the pages we scribble into
in the ledgers we keep
the neat lines
that trace down a page
toward discovery

community
bound by a likeness
held firm to a common
thread
through opposing views
to one answer

the words we hear
the songs we raise voice to
the ever strengthening solidarity
we arrive at

coming from the heart
of one love

unified
__________
Happy birthday Jarkko. Thank you for all the new friends you have helped bring into my life and all the adventures you have invited me to share with you. Hope to see you soon all things considered.
