Smile 100 Things George Brings to Our Lives

Let's see if we reach 100 by Georgie's birthday. Then we can wrap a bow around this love and 'send it to him'.

1. the tenderness in his singing voice

24. That "hee hee hee" laughter that he does in some of the Anthology interviews.

26. George's flair for outre clothing, like the pink sneakers he wore in Anthology.

27. George's smile, courtesy of Harold, Sr.

28. George and his scene stealing moments in the early Beatle movies - his deadpan delivery was classic!

29. George's love for race cars

30. George's natural way of reaching and inspiring many

31. Open- mindedness; receptive to new ideas; accepting and tolerant

32. Unique guitar work

33, Intensity!

34. Cultural sharing such as sharing Eastern philophy and musical styles and instruments

35. Loving influence - all of his life, George was so well loved

George & Asperger's

George has brought immeasurable joy into the lives of countless people. On the Random George Thoughts thread, I related a personal account of how George and his music reached a child who had Asperger's Syndrome (AS) which is on the high end of the autism spectrum. This child absolutely LOVED George and let George "talk" for her and often used the Beatles to get an idea or an agenda across. When she felt "overwhelmed," the first thing she'd do is play some George. She absolutely loved George. For her, all long and winding roads lead to the Beatles and she can always come up with a relevant Beatle or George quote. It just goes to show you how deeply moving George's words really are. This young George fan was rather a distinction even among Beatles fans. . She was quite the Beatles expert. It still warms my heart to think of how George's words, music and example took root in her heart.

What I am getting at is that George had and continues to have so much to offer...he has, I believe, made countless people appeciate, celebrate and recognize the spiritual component of their lives. His music has deeply moved me ever since I was a very young child.

George's gaze...I can't help but think of that child I once knew who was not prone to making eye contact, but when it came to George Harrison, she'd sit raptly looking at him. Whenever she watched a Beatle movie, her eyes were on George. I think George had a way of really reaching into the deeper, more profound part of our psyches...George did a lot to encourage us all to think for ourselves. The child who raptly watched George had AS. She was, as I said never comfortable about making eye contact, but boy, did she know about George! She could pick him out regardless of whether his back was turned or what clothes he wore or how he looked at the time. She loved George and used to draw George on any available scrap of paper. No doubt she grew up to be quite a George fan.

It warms one's heart that George was able to reach so many people. George was a first rate human being. I've said in many ways what I like about George and how George has touched so many lives. In Anthology, George said he hoped people would always have a place in their hearts for the Beatles. I think he can count on that. He can count on it up to 100% every time.

36. Attracting my attention to Roy Orbison, via the first Traveling Wilburys album... which immediately led to me getting ''Mystery Girl'' !

... 18 years later, gradualy, ''The Big O'' has become my favorite singer, and I hardly ever play my Beatles or ex-fab CD's anymore !

37. My only ''direct encounter'' with a Beatle (I've been to one Paul concert and two Ringo gigs)... mid/late 1990's/Crescent street in Montréal during Formula 1 week-end.

He was trying to get away from the press, my gaze caught his, and he just smiled and went on his way.

I still like to believe that his smile = ''Thanks for not asking me a question about my old band, or for an autograph''.
