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."






twentyfive years ago today john lennon was killed at the age of fourty. it's rather strange to imagine him as a 65 year-old, with a son who is older than he has ever become..

Nice. I was just contemplating about a little piece of my own on one of my heroes.

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

Hard to Imagine?
I guess for me its not so hard.
My friend, Chris, bares an uncanny resemblance Lennon.
Though Chris isnt 65 years old yet...

I can watch John age through him...

John Lennon was a beautiful man, in so many different ways. It is hard to believe someone as himself would be taken from us in such a way. A sign of the time, a fragile marker that will never do justice to the being taken.
