I changed my vote and voted on the official voting page..thank you for setting that up...
I like the video as it has music and you can actually see each person...at first I found it confusing.
The mosaic is hard to see online...but is also a great choice.
somehow I like the music with the photos..
It is so great we are doing something...
I wonder if they will sing Happy Birthday at the Barcelona concert.

This is a difficult decision. I like the mosaic idea because I think it could accomodate at least everyone on the Forum; however, the video was great! I especially thought it was cute on the dragged out words where the kids would be either checking their watch or pretending to fall asleep.

Think I will opt for the mosaic though as my number one choice.

All the best,

I agree with Diane, My vote is for the mosaic but I will need some help on how to send the picture. I cannot even set up an avatar for myself. Not my area of expertise. Any help out there???

From a relative newbie to the forum: I like the mosaic idea too. Is everyone invited to send a picture? If so, I also need instruction.

Thank you--

Another vote for the mosaic, sounds great, and a good way for everyone to participate.

I've voted for the mosaic, it sounds like everyone who wants to would be able to be included in this idea.
Looking forward to the result of the poll next week.

Does anyone know how can I send a letter to Mr. Leonard Cohen (or an Email for that matter...) or even to his manager?
this is very important...

I think the mosaic is a wonderful idea. Having just celebrated my 58th birthday last night with long time friends, I can speak from experience that a concrete expression that people are glad you are (still) around is very cool...

Hi everybody,

i just found this thread and I find the idea of a mosaic really wonderful. It gives everybody, who wants to do so, the opportunity to participate. You can count me in - and with helpful instructions I also can offer to help doing the "hard work" - but i must admit, that i would not know how to do it without anybody telling me.

I'm only a very small voice and won't be in Barcelona. I think probably the card with small pixel photos of us all is the best for those who can't get there on the Day. I will go along with whatever the majority want though. Just as long as he knows we care - the thing that came over strongly at Weybridge, for me, was how humble he is and how pleased (and surprised) that we had all turned out in the rain - as if we would be anywhere else!!

Oh joy......I shall be in Barcelona for Leonard's birthday :D :D How about we get 75 balloons with his picture on it? and we simply must have a birthday cake!

How will I be able to identify other forum members?
We could have a picnic in the park before the concert.....anyone interested?
