Imagine

    On Black

    Imagine there's no heaven,

    it's easy if you try,

    no hell below us,

    above us only sky.

    Imagine all the people,

    living for today.

    Imagine there's no countries,

    it isn't hard to do,

    nothing to kill or die for,

    and no religion too.

    Imagine all the people,

    living life in peace.

    You may say I'm a dreamer

    but I'm not the only one

    I hope some day you'll join us,

    and the world will be as one.

    Imagine no possesions,

    I wonder if you can,

    no need for greed or hunger,

    a brotherhood of man.

    Imagine all the people,

    sharing all the world you.

    You may say I'm a dreamer ...

      I spent a glorious 7 hours in Central Park yesterday. I took my godson to the zoo where we had a lot of fun watching the monkeys, penguins, the one polar bear out in the afternoon heat and many other animals doing their thing. We did everthing we take for granted on such a beautiful sunny day during vacation time.
      Crossing CP on my way home, I thought of Strawberry Fields.
      I stopped to take a few snaps. As always, fans had put down flowers for John.
      Looking at the photo on my computer screen late last night, the song and it's poignant lyrics came to mind AND how fortunate I am to have enjoyed this day in PEACE, without FEAR.

      Beautiful and thought provoking shot and, of course, the lyrics seem to be even more important today. I do IMAGINE every day.

      This song has been a thought-provoking impulse for almost 35 years, yet the necessity to think about what people are ready 'to kill or die for' and why they are doing so was probably never more urgent than these days.
      Thanks for sharing this. Please post to the coexistence group.
