In French: Joyeux anniversaire !
In this day, I would like to share with you a thought. There is a point in “Memoirs of Hadrian” which is very interesting in my opinion: Antinous connects Hadrian to the earth, to the whole humanity and therefore, more deeply, to himself. That is the real love. But I know you already know all that...
Have a good week-end in Chile and take care.
Have an amazing birthday!!!! This day is very impostant to me too in personal way...15 years ago my baby boy became an Angel.
We met in Caracas in October 2012 and was really cool that you singed Brave The Film for me...thanx!!!
Dear mr. h
All the best birthday wishes for tomorrow, don't have access on sunday to pc so thought i'd be early! i was 51 on 10th - two films and procul harum at the philharmonic hall (great venue - ask Steve Hackett - saw him there last sunday!) Missing the weekends badly but we're unable travel long distance currently, health restrictions but we'll see you sometime somewhere soon!
have a great day tomorrow, love and hugs and handstands - Jude and Ian xxxx

A letter to H.
I ordered your book "The invisible Man" (for me incredible Man) I read, in my spare time, a few pages a day.
It is amazing that we have places we both like and that we have walked the same corridors. Paris <3
I also did not know that you live near Oxford (beautiful city and surroundings). For the past 3 years I used to visit my middle, sweet daughter Sara who was living there and studying the IB programme at St. Clare's college at that time.
I wish you had a beautiful day on Sunday, full of love, full of happiness and laughter!
Fortunately, we will not have to rebuild a new Maginot line to protect us from imaginary enemies. Hatred might have sprung from the urns. Relief!
Otherwise, Colours Not Found In Nature is a great album. I always appreciate your lyrics (metaphor and sincerity, I think that I understand). The two last songs are touching. If you do some gigs with Isildurs Bane in Sweden or somewhere else, I think that we will happy to be there.
At last, as I didn’t mention it in my last message (I’ve to fight with my bad English!!!), I was glad to discover John Helmer last Sunday at the DeMontfort Hall. Maybe one day, I will try to read one of his books. Thank you again for all that you give... I’m currently writing another book (about a French novelist from the Nineteen Century) and your lyrics are always close to me.
Take care and see you soon.
I just put on a few disks to test a new amp, one disk was Toni Childs' "Union" album...saw your name in the liner notes! One of my favorites from the late 80's - no wonder! Best wishes to you and the band for much continued success! Marillion has been my favorite since discovering the band about 4 years ago. God Bless!
Dear Mr h
Do you know what I've been doing every night since I got back from Leicester?
I've been sitting in the dark - listening to Go! with the finger-lights on - smiling & crying - remembering the most wonderful weekend ever! Thank you!!!
All the love you can imagine!
I must say that I was very tired before to come to Leicester last Thursday... The blood flows back into my veins since Sunday night. What an evening! Everything was... perfect (if I can use this word). Probably, the best gig that I have ever seen!
Marillion have transformed the Montfort Hall into a sanctuary where the time has just stopped... Really. Your interpretation was spiritual ("Berlin" in particularly).
Thank you for all the inspiration that you give to me.
Take care and see you soon.
At the age of 56 I recently discovered Marillion! Where have you been all my life Steve?
From a Wakey lass to a Donny Lad I wish you a speedy recovery love x

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in Poland, there are no words to describe it!
It was my first convention and I'm still carrying the feeling of love, joy and inspiration I got there - and keeping in touch with tons of new friends from all over the world... how special, how amazing <3
Thank you so so much for all that you are, create and share with the world, it is brighter for it
See you in Leichester
A letter to H.
I am calmly sitting in a train, coming back from Lodz, probing, and writing a story, my story. I have had wonderful adventures with the Marillion band which I had wished to tell you about, but I did not manage.
At the age of 17 I fell in love with the band. In 87 I took a train and ran away to Poznan for a concert. My parents did not have a single clue where I was. My mom was extremely angry and lashed me when I came back.
I was sad when I found out that Fish went his separate career ways. I thought that was the end of Marillion. But, to my astonishment, a new member occurred - you. A man very sensitive, a man with an open, warm and loving heart. A man with whose voice I fell in love. Yes, that is true, I adore your voice. I have rediscovered Marillion, in a new light, in a new beginning.
Meanwhile, I got married and I bore 3 lovely daughters. Life has been going on. I have been listening to your music. However, the first time I saw you live on stage was in Dolina Charlotty. Energy, power and passion with which you move around the stale is extraordinary. I was impressed.
When I read that Marillion was going to come to Poland last year, my Danish man said: Take the train to Lodz and have fun! And so I did. After 30 years of living, I fell in love with the band once again. Love gives freedom.
Maybe I was too shy, maybe too polite, I did not have the courage to come to you during breakfast time, I did not wish to disturb you. Although, you were sitting with your family and friends, you did not see a single problem in speaking to your fans. Luckily, I have got 2 photos with you! One at the end of your last concert at the Lobby Bar and the other one before your departure. We also met each other in the lift, you were on your way to packing your suitcase.
I believe in miracles and hope to make one more photo with you. Thank you for the amazing experience!
The woman with the same long, black hair as yours.
On behalf of all of us here in Poland I want to say how much we are grateful for your contribution in creating a bubble of happiness in Lodz. Wytwornia and surroundings were flooded with vibe , happiness and warmth . We have never seen so many happy faces here
For some it has been the first MWE experience ever. for some first close meeting with the Band as well
and judging from Polish fans fora- an unforgettable experience
We truly appreciate that -considering your pain and discomfort you were as you were!!
Huge, warm thank you from all of us
