George's 70th!

As you know, 2013 marks the year in which George Harrison would turn 70 years of age. And so, twelve years after his passing, fans will be marking this special occasion - by listening to his music and by remembering him.
 
Again, I attempted to type up a "letter" of sorts... though I do always come back to the line: "What I feel I can't say"... because it's true.

Happy 70th birthday to the uniquely talented, complex and remarkable George Harrison!

Dear George,

 
70 years ago, you were born, and 70 years later, this is a day to send you love and to celebrate all that made you you. Today, as ever, your music will be playing and brightening the world the way only you could. Olivia said it best: "Nothing I can say about George speaks louder than his music."
 
George, you are remembered, valued and greatly missed each and every day. But it's true, "life flows on within you and without you" - so even if you are no longer here in the material world, you go on.
 
Time and time again, I am so thankful for you and your stunning music; so timeless and astonishing. It is your musical legacy and your unique personality that I so admire and cherish, and that will remain, regardless of how many years pass.
 
Thank you, George, for continuously inspiring and influencing me, for making me smile, for your honest and grounded self, for reminding me what truly matters in life - and thank you for the wonderful, invaluable gift of your music.
 
There really isn’t an adequate way to express all I'd like, no matter how much I may write. No words, nothing, could fully convey what you mean to so many; to your family, your friends, and your fans… to me, though I never even met you. So, before this gets any longer, I will close by saying again that I'll never, ever stop being incredibly grateful for you and your music; for the fact that someone like you was around during at least part of my lifetime. You and your music will forever have an immeasurable influence on me and you will forever be my most significant inspiration. Thank you, George, for everything. I’ll always have a space for you in my heart. ♥
 
Lots of love,
Andrea
