John Lennon, we miss you

What I liked about Lennon more than his music was his strength of conviction. If he were still alive he would feel just as strongly about those issues he felt strongly about back when alive. Today, many people would skitter around with their opinions, trying not to be politically incorrect. John would state his opinions in HIS own words, PC be damned.


I may not have always agreed with some of his stances, but I sure admired his courage to state them.


I started out with NOTHING...and I still have most of it left!

I always liked Lennon, I was totally shocked when I heard the news. I was in the parking lot at Seaside Reef in Cardiff By The Sea California just close to the Solana Beach line on Hy 1. I had just got done a surfing session there and heard the news on the radio in my van at the time. I admired him big time both as a song smith, and human being.

It finally hit me a full year later, when I heard some of the interviews he'd done, shortly before his death. He was looking forward, with great enthusiasm for the things he wanted to do next. That brought home what we'd really lost, not just the John Lennon of our collective memory, but the John Lennon he might have become.


I think John, and Yoko, would want us to remember that's what we lose whenever any human life is unjustly cut short, all the potential for who they might have been and what they might have done.
