I don't know if I'm supposed to remain wordless on wordless Wednesday, but I do like these little memorials to John Lennon. I was listening to some commentary on the television tonight by someone who knew Lennon well, and he said that one of the distinguishing characteristics of the man was that he always spoke the truth of what he felt. It's sad to know that so few people today have that virtue.

I do like the Imagine mosaic with a Peace symbol in flowers – when did you take it? When we went to NYC in September 2008 there were many roses on the mosaic and when we went again last October there were only dead leaves, was your photo recent? There are always so many people around it. It is hard to take a picture because people stand in front of it and want their pictures to be taken with it.

What a loss this was when this man left us. I have the same video on one of my post and every time I listen to him it makes me cry.

I can't believe he was only 40 when he died! I've never seen the memorial, but it is quite lovely decorated with flowers.

Perfect tribute!

A touching memorial to such a creative and
spiritual man.
Where does the time go at such great speed?

Perfect timing for a tribute to Lennon! I love those images...just gorgeous!

Imagine having one word that is so associated with YOU. Music keeps carrying the timeless message of this solitary man.

Dear George,
Wordless Wednesdays are a convenient excuse for me to do some quick posts, but in this case, I thought the format was particularly fitting.

I of course invite your response and appreciate it immensely. Yes, it's very sad that truth is a scarce commodity. My husband and I watched the Lennon PBS documentary with great interest and nostalgia.

Dear Vagabonde,
I took these pictures in July 2008. I rented an apartment on the Upper West Side for three weeks while my daughter was taking a summer course at the School for Visual Arts. You are right, it is very difficult to get an unobstructed photo of this mosaic, that's why I chose the Dutch angle on the second image.

Yes, losing Lennon at such a young age was devastating.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Kala,
He was far too young to die! He still had so much music inside him.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Marilyn,
Thank you!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear CC,
And to think that I thought John Lennon was old. He was only fourteen years my senior.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear tammymcchesney,
Thank you for your visit. It's hard to believe that thirty years have passes. Imagine what he could have accomplished...

Dutchbaby said...

Dear Ruth,
Well said. You have me thinking now, about what word I would choose to be associated with...

Dutchbaby said...

Dear margie,
I think the world would stand still.

Dutchbaby said...

Dear lisa,
The flowers are cleared every day and a new design emerges every day. I just love that!

Dutchbaby said...

Dear lorilaire,
Merci de votre visite!
