John Lennon

'In the midst of life we are in death.'
The Book of Common Prayer

Only a couple weeks after I began these letters in 2006, I put up a post on December 8, the date John Lennon was killed. And today, when John would have been 70 years old, I am going to offer the same video. It is perfect, I think.


  1. Such a lose to so many. I watched "imagine" again the other night. I lost count of how many times I've watched it now. It's hard to believe 30 years have past.

  2. This was a treat once again. I really like your new header photo. Have a great weekend.

  3. Wat a lovely tribute, thank you.
    I love the new header, is that the farm?

  4. I want to thank you for this tribute to John Lennon on what would have been his 70th birthday.

  5. Wouldn't that have been lovely - thirty years later to him still - and imagine all the impassioned opinions he would have had, great songs and social commentary...

  6. My husband loved The Beatles, and particularly John. He always referred to them as "my boys", and when he was a boy, he insisted that his mother cut his hair in the Beatles style, although by then that look was completely out of fashion; he didn't care about the other kids at school making fun of him for that.
    A bit later in his teens, he and his cousin had a band and played in clubs and pubs all over Yorkshire. They won a talent contest performing "Let It Be".
    If he was still alive, he would most likely remind me of John's 70th birthday today.

    The new header picture is beautiful! Is that your house?

  7. Nan, I love your header photo-just gorgeous!! Autumn in New England is the best!!

    I can't believe John Lennon would have been 70-it doesn't seem possible does it!

  8. So sad to be missing John these days. At lunch Saturday the restaurant had his music on. Bittersweet.

    Thank you, thank you for your new header photo. It made me gasp when it first came up. Now I just want to step right into it.

  9. Thank you all for leaving a note. I so love that video, though it makes me cry every time.
    To those who asked, yes, that's our house. The barn is over across the driveway.

  10. Thank you so much for this, I had not seen it before, it's wonderful.
    Love your header/house.

  11. Cait, it is wonderful and I think, a work of art. Thanks about the header. Already the color is different.


I'll answer your comments as soon as I possibly can. Please do come back if you've asked a question.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
