There's a lot of my childhood that I don't remember. If I really try to focus on something sometimes, suddenly it will come back. I suppose I just don't want to remember but I do remember Ed Sullivan. (Yeah, I'm THAT old.) Just very faintly, I can remember sitting downstairs in the rec room with my parents and little sister eating ice cream with chocolate powder "PDQ" on top of it for our evening treat (Hmmm...strange I remember the ice cream!?) Anyway I remember the night 4 boys came out with long hair and sang. My parents grumbled about that long hippie hair and I, the dutiful child, shook my head along with them. It was just awful, outrageous! Those darn hippies! What was the world coming to?!

but John was still number one.
Still later, in my early twenties, driving to work on a snowy morning I heard the news. John was dead. I felt such shock. How could this be? I was so depressed and when I got to work no one understood. I remember feeling so alone and sad. No one understood and to try to talk about it would just make me more of an outsider...in my small mid-western middle class suburban world no one else seemed to get it.

The more I see the less I know for sure. - John Lennon
Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.-John Lennon
I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now? -John Lennon
My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot. -John Lennon
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. -John Lennon
I still miss you John.
