I'll ask Jarkko if he's able to stick it on here somewhere, like Jack suggested. It's just a warm and innocent little message :-)

Oh, that's wonderful, Geoffrey... and thanks to both you and Jarkko.

I'm so intrigued by the beauty of all of these handwritings... I've seen Leonard's before and notice how the beauty of his varies... as many of ours does [mine definitely does], according to whether he's writing in his notebooks, fitting words into tight spaces, writing additional thoughts in the margins... or for presentation, as with what he wrote on the wall in Poland.

I've not seen any, personal notebook-style writing by either Anjani or Marianne, so can't consider theirs in that context.

I was astonished by the incredible beauty and warmth of Anjani's writing and signature... the flourish that is akin to the 'calligraphic' beauty we've seen throughout the history of handwriting... some of the famous signatures of historical figures comes to mind.

Now, once again, look at the beauty of Marianne's writing. As with Leonard's, nothing in it suggests anyone older than 30. Still every bit as strong and vibrant, open and free, as it likely was then... some signatures decline in these aspects as people grow older, yet this penmanship seems as likely to be the same as what you'd have seen had you obtained a note from Marianne whilst she was with Leonard on Hydra.

It's really great being able to see the handwriting of these people who have enjoyed such prominence in Leonard's life.

Thanks for sharing this sweet note from Marianne, Geoffrey... and Jarkko.

Oh, man, it was sweet.
So calm, so relaxed, such a fine presence, to have each other
like that. I will read this subject now.

I am talking of the talk show on TV
that we got the other day in Sweden, it will be
da capo:ed on Saturday.

Yes, that is the "kind of" woman,
and those are the ones who come into my life
sometimes, and disappear untouched, while
I want to run after them and ask for an embrace. :wink:
