“Thanks again so much for your hard work, dedication and generosity in hosting the festival again this year. You all do such a great job of making us feel welcome, and always you are patient and kind with us even though you are sleep-deprived and perhaps hung-over as well (from chocolate if not wine!). You have built something beautiful, and those of us who have come to L’Improvidence have all benefitted from it. Many thanks, and felicitations! I am in Berlin now, and it’s raining, so I think it’s me who the bad weather is following after all. Please don’t tell anyone. Bises, Tim”
