john lennon

adding page day that this quote really spoke to me

lennon imagine law



yoko ono – much about john here

all we are saying – by david sheff


nowhere boy (doc)


john and yoko: above us only sky (doc):

59 min – yoko (on living thru ww2 ie: helping her little brother imagine a menu when he was hungry and there was no food): imagine got me thru a lot of thing..

(then kids reading her book – grapefruit – about ie: balloons not flying if you skin them).. kid says/reads: you’ve got to use your imagination.. otherwise it doesn’t mean anything

1:05 – very touching.. quotable comments while they are cutting imagine.. ie: have to imagine no labels/categories.. all the things that divide us; a lot of people said it was too dreamy.. but it’s what we are all wishing for; et al

why is it impossible to move forward in these dreams and make them a reality


1:07 – dan richter: i hear yoko because those were all her words.. i love john but you know.. those were her words.. she was speaking thru him.. i don’t think the world gets that yet.. she taught him this language

john: (on saying he should have given her credit): it was right out of grapefruit.. her book

1:08 – yoko (2018): i feel in the big picture.. the fact that john and i met.. was to do this song


“Every song I’ve ever written has been absolute torture… except for the ten or so songs the gods give you and that come out of nowhere.”
John Lennon, born on this day in 1940, on creativity
