Almost all the pages are now active and it wonderful to see the great pictures and read the reports about the event. It brings back a lot of good memories.
Thank you for doing such wonderful work putting it all together!

P.S. My arm is healing!

Thanks Jarkko

Yes, I, also, heartily agree :D , Anne and Sean! I'll post here what I wrote privately to Jarkko last night [copying it to Geoff and the Committee Members ~ whom I also appreciate 8) !]
Hi Jarkko [just like it's spelled :wink: ] ~

I'm very impressed with the way you've done the presentation of photos, with the truly-representative 'theme' one at the top of the two columns in each category, and the long, slender presentation of photos beneath them. The form mirrors the long, slender logo of the burning violin. Truly elegant.

The photos are excellent and are showing a great cross-section of people, and the variety of ways they participated in each activity. This section is well designed, presented with a lot of class, and captures the warmth and good feelings between the participants ~ generated naturally, as well as by the Event itself.

Excellent job, both of you [Eija :) , of course, the other] ~ all of your hard work is really paying off, and will remain as a first-class, lasting tribute to our time in New York. As Joe said, I'll also be proud to refer people here, to your creative capturing of the many memories of our splendid Event 8) :D !

You really put your heart into what you do on 'behalf' of, in the 'name' of, for the love of ~ Leonard, par excellence! He's certainly deserving and still, in his humble way, I know he's proud of and feels privileged for all you've done, continue to do, and will do for years to come! As for me, I feel privileged to know and to have worked with you.

*I'll note two things:
~ Today, I added "Truly elegant," which I meant to include last night.
~ Bobbie responded to my e-mail:
"Hi Jarkko [just like it's spelled :wink: ] ~"

Nope. It's Jarkko. ;-)

and, I replied:
Oh, dear.....that's right! That's the 'other' name! My humblest apologies ~ yarKO!
["oh drat, drat, drat" she whispers to herself, as she walks away, wringing her hands, "will I ever get it right!?!"] :wink:

and Dick Straub responded:
Very enthusiastically endorse Lizzy's comments. AWESOME job Jarkko and Eija!
There were some comments previous to these, as well. I'll catch up with those later :D .

Likewise, I know that the others, along with me, also appreciate Geoff 8) and each other's excellence in all of this! I've written a personal thank-you note to Geoff. If I made a copy of it [a habit that goes waaaay back ~ and for good reason :wink: ], I'll reproduce it here. If I didn't, I'll write another.

Yes, Sean ~ I also get a kind of excited, butterfly feeling when I look at the photos, and so many, unique memories begin flooding in. I can imagine how the Hydra attendees felt after they returned. I remember reading their postings and entries, and it was at that point that I wished so much I had been able to, and had gone. For them to add New York onto Hydra, and for some onto Montreal ~ what a rich stash of layered memories :D ! Next, Berlin 8) .......and, for some fortunate ones, Hydra in-between :D .

Okay, taking the liberty of spreading others' complimentary words, to and about Jarkko and Eija, these were from Joe and Anne Way:
Dear Jarkko and Eija,

You have created a magnificent work with your camera and your artistry.
It will be such a pleasure to direct our friends to this terrific
remembrance of a wonderful time in New York.

. . .

All the best,

Joe & Anne
If I've missed anyone, I'm certain they'll add it as they wish :D .
