Remember that Van Morrison lives in Belfast and is about to receive a Freeman of Belfast award?

Cool, right?

I think so too.

So how cool it to open a very thoughtful thank you gift from the Belfast City Council and see this:


They tell me he doesn’t do many autographs…  shucks, and there’s one just for lil ol’ me.

I am really touched.

Thank you to Jayne, my friends at the City Council and Van Morrison.  I am deeply honored to have been able to come to your wonderful, dynamic city.  You are an inspiration. 

Here’s a tune from the CD so you can enjoy with me too, friends.  Open the Door (To Your Heart).  Take it away, Mr. Van Morrison…
