It's your 66th birthday today, and I just wanted to wish you all the best. Your life has been pretty spectacular, but also pretty hard. Thank you for sticking it out and making beautiful things. It's been amazing to get such a peek into that mind of yours. Thanks for being serious and thoughtful, and goofy and adorable. Thanks for being geeky and cool. Thanks for sharing it all so beautifully with the world.Thanks for bringing me home. Thanks for always knowing the right thing to say to make me feel better and more connected. Thanks for being cynical and optimistic. Thanks for being so complicated.Thanks for blowing me a kiss when I saw you in concert. Thanks for 'the one note' that I really could hear, and feel. Thanks for all the dedication and hard work, and all the debt you made by smashing all those guitars. Thanks for still going, even when people thought you were a bit mad. Thanks for proving that if you've got something to say, and a way to say it- that it can be done, and it can be done so beautifully. Thanks for all those notes you added to my symphony.
Happy Birthday Peter Dennis Blandford Townshend!!
