I want to share those photos I took on Various Postion '85 tour in
with all the Leonard fans whose hearts are magically unified again by
the beauty of Dear Heather. At that time I was photojournalist in
Poland so I had a privilege to be so close to the stage for first two
songs of the concert. I participated also in two interviews –– one with
polish TV in Warsaw, and another one in Katowice. That was
unforgettable experience to meet Leonard face to face and confirm how
great person he is in a real life contact.|

This photo gave me a good laugh. Do you see my outfit?
We'd just come to Poland from Sweden. Geoff Clennell was supposed to
have put all the luggage on the bus, but mine was forgotten at the hotel in Sweden.
So I had nothing to wear except the clothes I traveled in and my tour
jacket (which i still have). There was no chance to shop because the Minister of Culture warned us
not to take unsupervised walks, and my bodyguard didn't show up until
the gig that night...
Thanks for the memory, Andrzej and Jarkko!
