Leonard, you have given us so much. You've given us your words. You've given us your wisdom. You've given us your fears. You've given us your being. Words have not been invented yet to accurately describe what your music and poems have meant to me over the years. I hope you are well and I hope you are enjoying the day of your birth. It has been and will forever be a special day for me.

Just a fan,

Dear Leonard,
WB Yeats was maybe right when he said that Men Improve With The Years!
I swear time speeds up and the years go by faster as we age! Another birthday has quickly bit the dust.
So very glad we are all here to celebrate this occasion!

I hope you find my design concept below interesting.
As always, the meaning is in the eye of the beholder so I will let you ponder on this paradox.

it’s just the shadow .....

The shadow of my reach

Speaking of the dark, I’m so looking forward to buying your latest musical offering You Like It Darker and once again go with the ebb and flow of your words and music. By all reports it’s a milestone album! Seems this time of the year has become your new album release date. If that’s the case, can’t wait for same time next year when the other new one you’re working on (no pressure) could be out!

Anyway, what I really want to say is to wish you a most Happy Birthday!
Have a wonderful and peaceful day with your family and friends and make some more special memories.
Of all the gifts one can give or receive, they are the most precious and treasured bar none.

Love,
Bev

Happy birthday Leonard from a devoted fan who was so awe-struck when I met you (twice) at the Grand in Brighton that I could not produce a coherent sentence. I will never forget meeting you and your music has been part of my life for nearly forty years. In fact I cannot imagine what life would be like without your wisdom, wit and warmth.

With warmest wishes for your birthday.

I met you in Dublin on the Twelfth of September 2012.
(I doubt that will you remember it as well as I do.)
I had only a few seconds with you .
I thanked you for a wonderful concert the previous evening.

I often wish I had asked you what you meant by " a brief elaboration of a tube ".
If I met you now I would wish you a very happy birthday,
but hand you a very polite letter (which I always carry in my pocket)
asking for your explanation.

Happy Birthday!
