Dear Leonard

Dear Leonard,

It was lovely to see you last night. You looked radiant and your voice was something beyond my very high expectations. You were as kind and fun as I had imagined, and to hear you speak and sing was like your voice was hugging my heart. It was only fair that you brought some company too since I took DH with me, but it would have been much more intimate with 11 000 less people. Maybe next time we could meet at our place instead of an ice-hockey arena?

I'd like to especially thank you for singing Suzanne to me. It's been a special song to me ever since I heard it for the first time. I think it gave me goosebumps way back then just like it did yesterday. We didn't have a wedding waltz at our wedding, we had Suzanne and terrible dancing skills. (You'd know that if you had come there like I dreamed. Instead of having you play live at our wedding we had two young men with a guitar and a cello who were quite terrific, so don't feel too bad about not coming. I love you nonetheless.) My other favorite song of the concert, Who By Fire, was most touching and hearing it last night was one of those moments I wish to remember forever. I think I almost saw your eyes moisten. My vision was blurred due to some nasolacrimal duct issues at the moment so I'm not quite sure. I believe you enjoyed last night as much as I did and it is the most heartwarming feeling. You're my favorite old man. Please come back soon.
