A beautiful account, Diane and Padma. Love seeing the photos in black-and-white... lends a present-day nostalgia to the emotional import of meeting Leonard on that day. Leonard photographs so well.

Thanks to both of you.

Thanks for putting that up, Jarkko. That day's gone down in memory, for sure.

Here's a portrait of Leonard I snapped on that day. Jarkko has put it on the Files:

We've just booked tickets for something at the Green Note. On their website - they have Leonard as one of the "wonderful musicians who have graced the Green Note stage over the years..."!!!

Happy memories.....

I haven't been on the forum for a very long time. This still brings a smile to my face!

Same with me Padma,
Wow has it been 6 years, Leonard hasn't changed a bit :D
think I've got a bit more snow on the roof, what's left of the roof anyway,
I don't think any past or I don't think any future meetup could top that suprise,
still fresh in my mind though,
Who knows maybe he'll be in Galway for the walk? :lol:
Hope to meet you all again some day soon ,
Cheers, John
