Lennon In Paris

“we need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections.  if we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others.”

– john lennon

december 8th is one of those dates i always remember.  it’s the day john lennon died.  obviously, i wasn’t around when this happened, but as a huge beatles fan it’s one of those dates i can’t forget.  his music and life impacted (and continues to impact) so many people.  he had a lot of great quotes about life and love, but i read this one the other day and it stuck with me.  it’s so important to love ourselves and feel good about who we are before we fully commit to loving someone else.  because i’m human i struggle with self confidence like everyone else.  part of me feels like all of my struggles with dating and love are god’s way of leading me to my true self.  i’m looking forward to the day when i can look in the mirror and truly love who i am, because when that happens i will be ready to love someone else in the way i’ve always dreamed about.  thank you for everything, john lennon.  we need you now more than ever.

enjoy your weekend

i thought about ending the week with a picture of a beautiful woman, but i found this picture the other day when looking for john lennon pics and didn’t use it.  it’s been a strange week for me.  i’m off to the work holiday party.  have a great weekend.  i’ll see you on monday unless i get post-frisky tomorrow or sunday.  peace.

howard cosell announcing the death of john lennon

i also meant to post this video yesterday.  you often forget how news was received when there was no internet or twitter.  i’m willing to guess more than half of the country found out about john lennon’s death from monday night football announcer howard cosell.  unreal.

a day missed

i’ve been out of pocket the last two days, so i apologize for not posting anything – especially not mentioning the 30th anniversary of john lennon’s death.  like i said in a previous post, there’s not a day that goes by when i don’t think about or listen to the beatles.  can you imagine what the last 30 years would have been like if we still had john lennon?  surely, the beatles would have gotten back together in my life time or at least i like to think they would have.  john lennon, you are greatly missed.
