I wasn't really much of a Beatles fan until after Derek and I saw Love (the Cirque show at the Mirage in Las Vegas) and we literally walked out of the theater absolutely stunned. We bought the soundtrack and then I become engrossed in the story that was The Beatles. This past summer we watched the Imagine documentary on Netflix (if you have Netflix ... WATCH IT!) and became fascinated with John Lennon and all that he stood for.

The thing that struck me the most about him was how calm and easy going he always seemed to be, even when discussing something that he felt passionately about. Today is John Lennon's 70th birthday and for today I will imagine a world with peace and love.

"You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one"

the chorus from Imagine by John Lennon

  1. I cry every year on John Lennon's Bday. Listening to the Beatles and his solo music was a huge part of my high school and college years. I wasn't even alive when he was killed, but I am also stunned by all he stood for and the music he created. Check out the movie The Beatles made in 1965 called A Hard Day's Night sometime. John Lennon is hilarious in it.
