I was born in the mid-sixties, in North America, into a world quickly becoming in awe of The Beatles. So it’s not surprising that as a child I recall a place on our walls where we had a frame displaying John Lennon quotes. He was more than a musician: he was a pacifist and a poet who touched millions, perhaps billions of lives. The Facebook page dedicated to him has now reached nearly eight million Likes. I am one. How about you?
I want to share with you, in connection with my previous post about the incredible work towards peace being done by Playing For Change, this amazing performance. I cannot imagine many who will reach the end of this 4-minute video with dry eyes. I do hope you enjoy. And let’s remember, we are dreamers, and together we do make a difference. Namaste.

In 1985, New York City dedicated an area of Central Park where Lennon frequently walked to be called ‘Strawberry Fields’. In a beautiful display of global unity, countries from around the world donated trees. The city of Naples, Italy, donated the ‘Imagine’ mosaic.
