    25th Anniversary

    On December 8th, it will be 25 years since John Lennon was murdered.

    living for today...

    Imagine there's no countries,
    It isnt hard to do,
    Nothing to kill or die for,
    No religion too,
    Imagine all the people
    living life in peace...

    Imagine no possesions,
    I wonder if you can,
    No need for greed or hunger,
    A brotherhood of man,
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world...

    You may say Im a dreamer,
    but Im not the only one,
    I hope some day you'll join us,
    And the world will live as one.

    Sure seems that long, a lifetime ago...just when he was getting off the smack and starting to write and record again.

    As the song says, "If there's a rock and roll heaven, you know they have a hell of a band." Lots of the good ones died young.

    I've always loved "Imagine" but to see the lyrics spelled out like that after ages that really makes you appreciate just how gorgeous the song really is.

    Hmmmm Twenty-five years since I ran into an old boyfriend too. Quiet sad evening when the DJ turned off the turn tables and tuned into the FM station out of Madison and the rest of the night was quiet and Lennon. It snowed that night also.
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
