Once again to be sincerely thankful to the Creator of the World, to good coincidences, to the ancient Gods of all artistic beauties, to the freedom inspired by the Aegean Sea, to the magic of the music, to the land growing up generations and cultures, to the illuminated way that the gifted people walked for today's artists, to the songs which have become the tales telling everything about life and human beings, to the childish joy, to the wisdom, to the country of dreams, to the sky above housing the secret stars and the moon, to the winds, to the days, to the nights, to the seasons hosting a variety of emotions, to travels, to the greatest minds playing with the words, to poetry, to dances as the signs of souls, and to the voices able to reach the most hidden corners of the heart...
This is because life granted a graceful voice on the tip of a sensitive heart to those knowing about the dignity of music within the souls on a day when the calenders showed February 28th.
And the best wishes are for the great artist Manolis Lidakis today. All hopes are that he would always be together with what gives meaning to the life, warmth of music would never give up his soul, all the tales would be enriched by his mystical voice in tranquility and happiness, art would be vitalised by his elegant musical ability. And may he enlighten the worlds of people whose hopes hide behind the gray clouds, like the small stars stubbornly twinkling in a winter's night.
Χαρούμενα γενέθλια, χρόνια πολλά και τις καλύτερες ευχές μου αγαπητέ Μανώλης Λιδάκης.
