Today, John Lennon would’ve made it to seventy. Wow. Seventy.
My father died at sixty-nine, three years ago, and I remember my father being a very “old” person for his age. Although my dad was a very intelligent and kind man -he wasn’t hip, or an artist by any means…so its hard to imagine John Lennon at seventy. Probably walking around with a cigarette talking about the next plan for Amnesty International….or Planetary Peace.
I grew up listening to The Beatles. My brother taught me all about them, and he and I will forever have those memories. I love The Beatles so much, I actually named my boy Lennon.
John Lennon was one of those people that comes to our planet and changes it forever. He wanted world peace above everything – and writing “Imagine” was, I believe, divine inspiration.
Lennon also wrote one of the most beautiful love songs I’ve ever heard in my life…”Woman.” He captures the essence of “the little child inside the man.”
And as a tribute I am posting both those videos on my blog…Happy Birthday John Lennon!
