Dear Mr Peter Gabriel,
I would like to tell you so much, probably a simple MERCI in its bigger and larger sense would be enough.
We had to wait for so long between each of your albums.
We had( at least me) to make real attention effort to enter your world but but I made it, fascinated and amazed by the universes which I discovered.
With your last album, you maybe signed your work most requiring and the most audacious between all!
I needed all my capacity of attention and numerous listening to enter your world. But what a dazzle!
My first listening was laborious. I even considered in you lost! Of not enough faith whom I am. I thought that had come the album by which I would stop following your music.
I discovered a dark and brilliant universe at once. Fascination, bewitchment, the vocabulary countered light to say the power!
I could say still a lot.
Only the words miss when it is about magic!
Then here we are, just thank you immense. By hoping to have the happiness and the chance to attend one of your next concerts, in Switzerland, who knows?
Wish you all the best

Ta lettre est fantastique kriKri et je partage avec toi tout ton enthousiasme! Mes congratulations les plus sincÃ¨res!
I hope as well that Peter will read it (but if you can, you can write directly to Tina and so you'll have more chances that Peter read your "message in a bottle", to speak in the Sting way). :-]
The exact address is following:
To Tina's Section
P.O. BOX 35
Krikri, some are coming by train from switzerland to the Paris show, her is the link in order to contact them
if you need cheep accomodation in Paris they would be many on the forum that would be pleased to give an hand, or find an avaliable bed! :-] :-]
if you need me to translate your post I'll do it (?)

And the auditorium has an absolute perfect acoustic for concerts.Samething amaising.So I've a dream!
See yo and have a nice WE!

Thank you Pink, Didn't realize you gave me the adress of the Maestro.! I could write him and ask him for coming in Montreux Jazz?!!!

Such kind of concert, voice and classical orchestra, would fit so perfectly in the main hall of the Montreux Jazz.
dream, dream, dream.
Hi Krikri - Good to see you again! How is your painting? I am a big fan of your work which you kindly let me see.
I am still studying. Right now am taking a basic design class/ color.
Hope you are well. I am going to see the SMB concert in NYC in May so I am very excited.

Hi Matt! Happy, I'm too!!!
I'm so happy for you that you can go and see SMB.
Sure you'll give us a feedback!
In Paris, won't be possible.I can't believe that PG will make so few shows.Who knows, in some others places.
Well, so I could ask you the same! How is your photos going.?
My paintings are going well, even if it is not easy all the days.I 'm happy to announce my first big solo exhibition, in november in Geneva.A mix beetween photos and paints. The room is beautifull and quiete big.So I'll have a lot a work.But i'm so happy about that.A perspective that give me so much energy!
Wish you a nice WE

HI Krikri - I have taken a break from the photos now and wasn't happy with the site. I will try to organize something though. Do I remember correctly that you were working on a site? Did you finish something? Please send a link if you have.
Congratulations on your exhibition and I wish you a lot of success with it!
I have a friend in Geneva. If you send me details I will tell her to go see it!
krikri27 February 2010 at 4:06pmPosts: 289 (0 today)Status: offline
Yes! I'm done with it.I'm almost abble to make the updates by myself.(and I have a photo section too!)
and thank you for your kind words.

"Thank you Pink, Didn't realize you gave me the adress of the Maestro.! I could write him and ask him for coming in Montreux Jazz?!!!"
Of course you can! I would say: You must!!!
But this is only the address of Realworld, where Peter's secretary Tina reads all fans' letters!
I have already sent a letter to Tina in order to convince Peter coming into Italy with his New Blood Tour!
I hope he will read my letter and listen to me. Hope is the last God, anyway.

Dear Mr Gabriel!
From time to time, I'm coming here to read the last news.
I thought that had come also the first tour that I couldn't assist.
So what a surprise to see TWO dates in Switzerland.
It is like a Christmas present. :-]
So now, more than ever, dear Mr Gabriel.MERCI!!! :-]
See you in Avenches!
