Re: Leonard 80 years: Fund Raising for our Hydra Bench

I submitted my contribution on August 1st, but my PayPal account is showing it as "unclaimed". Wondering if I should cancel and resubmit?

Thanks, Joy

Re: Thank you Dublin!

I would like to add my thanks to the Dublin team for organizing a superb event. Every detail was perfect, from the choice of venues, to the "goodie bags", to the amazing entertainment which we enjoyed each evening. It will be a hard act to follow.... but we have another great team lined up.... and o...

Tom Jones (again)

Mark and I went to see Tom Jones at Austin City Limits recently, and he opened with "Tower of Song". It was actually pretty good.

Re: How to celebrate Leonard's 80th birthday

I am also for "Came so far for beauty". It all seems to be coming together nicely. Mark and I will be happy to contribute of course, and hopefully to sit on said bench one day!

So far I like the bench, and planting a tree.

Re: The Wordless LC Songbook - hand printed by George Walker

$880 or $1,880 - doesn't make a lot of difference to me. If I wanted (and could) spend that sort of money, I would be looking to buy one of Leonard's lithos. Like Lizzy I think I'll wait for the "everyman's" edition. Wendy But we don't blink an eye at spending that on flights and tickets! :? Joy

Re: Dublin Calling

Many thanks to Paula and her organizing colleagues! Looking forward very much to this exciting Event, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones. I'm actually arriving on Wednesday (to sleep off jet lag) and will be at the Landsdowne on Thursday. Now that spring has finally arrived, August doesn't se...

Perhaps they are whitewashed by the sun! Wonderful article... makes me feel very nostalgic.

Thank you, Jarkko. Wow - that is an amazing piece of writing - it is great to have something new to chew on. I am going to re-read it and digest slowly.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Auckland, New Zealand – December 21, 20

It’s hard to believe it’s been over two months since the concert in Auckland. I meant to write something immediately afterwards, but somehow Christmas, New Year, travelling back to the USA, and life in general got in the way. But it’s given me time to reflect on that evening, and to get some of my d...
