Dear dear Leonard

Wishing you a wonderful day on your birthday on Saturday. I will be thinking of you then and hoping very much that the lucky people in the audience in Amsterdam sing a most rousing "happy birthday" to you and carry you along on a wave of love!
I have been truly blessed to have joined with you "in the spirit of song" on eight occasions in the past four years and please god I will have the opportunity to do so again in the future.
Please take good care of yourself Leonard and may you be showered with every blessing possible. You are a most wonderful human being.
I send you my warmest good wishes and affection. Take care my Friend.
Mrs Mac

Sincerely wishing you a birthday full of love on Saturday, Leonard! Many of us will be marking that day too!!..It may involve a glass or two of wine at the very least.
Your poetry and music has absolutely changed my life in the last 4 years, since I met you unexpectedly in the hotel lobby at Weybridge. Your life's work has led me on the most beautiful journey of discovery, as you see from this photo!

Before every concert, happy people arrive from all over the place, to enjoy each other's company and recharge! They share with those who cannot be there. This is a wonderful energiser for us, and hopefully, for you too.
Please don't stop!! You look so happy on stage, and I love the way your songs come straight from the heart. I was at the Brighton concert one lovely summer's day in August. I believe my friend Aymi noticed you and Javier at Costa Coffee, and came to welcome you to our home town!
It was so good to have you here again. We are having a ball...we hope you are too!
Much love, Chrissie xxx

And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind

May flowers always line your path
And sunshine light your day
May songbirds serenade you
Every step along the way
May a rainbow run beside you
In a sky that's always blue
And may happiness fill your heart
Each day your whole life through

May the dreams you hold dearest
Be those which come true
May the kindness you spread,
Keep returning to you.

Happy Birthday Leonard - your words and your music have enriched my life more than you'll ever know.
Lots of love, Joan.

Dear Leonard,
Happy birthday! I hope this past year has been heartwarming for you since you have made it an amazing year for your friends. Thanks for blessing us with your wondrous talents. You stir emotions that lift the heart and mind. There is a sweet, sweet spirit among the people who gather from all over the world to fellowship with you. My daughter once told me, “True empathy in its purest form, music allows one to feel the essence of another’s consciousness.” This made me immediately think of you. May God bless you with many more happy birthdays.
Love and safe travels,
