Hi Eija and Jarkko,

Your postcard arrived yesterday!
The photo and the stamp look just great! :)

What a wonderful idea to create the card, to send it to Leonard, to his family, to his friends and to his fans and to make a donation to War Child Canada!
The DVD and the books on hummingbirds are such beautiful presents too!

Thank you so much for the idea, for taking the trouble to write all our addresses and for sending the card to us! :)

Lots of love,
Susanne

I'd be willing to be we may get ours before Jakarta, but that's all! It's taken me a week to get a card from New Jersey.

The postcard and... the stamp arrived yesterday.
It was such a beautiful moment to discover them "life"! It was a real instant of happiness.
Thank you Jarkko and Eija for the wonderful idea and for the work.

Mine arrived yesterday and many thanks to Jarkko, Eija, Lorca, Ania all who are involved. It's a continous pleasure to experience all these things around Lenny .... compared to him Michael Jackson and even Prince are .... I don't know exactly what they are compared to him.

I couldn't get my eyes off the Haiku in Annick's attachement. I made it a song this morning. Thanks for the song, Mr. Cohen and Annick !

Europe rounds the first corner, still in the lead!

I look forward to hearing your latest Leonard song, Henning ~ when I get to work, I will.

Michael Jackson and Prince ~ :lol: whatever brought them to mind, whilst thinking of Leonard!?! However, I can see why you drew a blank and couldn't complete your sentence :wink: .

The beautiful postcard arrived at Valencia this morning. I really like it.

I must say that the idea of the hummingbirds books and DVD was really lovely!

One by one the cards arrive

Post by John Etherington » Fri Sep 24, 2004 2:30 pm

the cards are coming through...Mine arrived this morning in perfect condition (delivered by the one postman who seems to know what he's doing, around these parts). So add Islington, London to the list. Well done Jarkko and Eija...you've done a great job. Best wishes, John E

Well, it's nice to know that they've hit British shores. I've just check the post now and it's not arived here in Manchester. Maybe tomorrow.

I just hope that my curse, of having things go missing in the post, doesn't hold true!
