Eva bestrides the Event. Her charming presence, her amazing goody-filled bags for participants, she has organised an exceptional meeting of Leonard fans. The opening evening was outstanding, thank you.

eva has undoubtedly invested much time and energy into making it an event for everyone to remember. leonard was unbelievably fortunate to have such an inspiring admirer of his work. the world needs active people like this, people willing to make an effort! if i were rich, was not scared of flying, did not have a severe facial tic, had someone to water my two sunflower plants and feed the tropical fish - i would have been there to hear lord mickey's opening speech. can anybody tell me what he said? was i mentioned, for example?

A big thank you to Eva (and helpers).
I should also mention Jarkko, who has inspired and guided this group.

To those I didn't see on the last night - au revoir!

of course you say you can't complain

We have just arrived home to a rather chilly, damp Belfast and want to say thank you so much to Eva, and her helpers for organising such a fantastic event. So many wonderful things, the jazz club was a great venue and Budapest is such a beautiful city.
So nice to catch up so many Cohenites and we are already looking forward to Hydra and Ghent!

A very big hug to Eva and her helpers for a wonderful event. Suzanne and I loved every moment of all the activities and concerts. It was so nice to see friends from around the world that we only see once every two years.
I will post my photos when we return to New York later this week.

A big thank you to Eva and the Team for everything you did to make this an unforgettable weekend. And special thanks for introducing us to BoeBeck [BeckBoe? :)]. What a wonderful set of interpretations of (less popular) Lenny's songs.
