THE FOOTSTEPS WE MADE
TO THE LIGHT reflects what I’m thinking: that we’re all going together towards the light. It’s wishful thinking in some respects, but we create the future with our wishes. People say ‘Well you did the Bed-In and there’s still violence in society’, but there is a light that’s sneaking in and that all of us are part of. In those days, when John and I did something, okay maybe three people understood it or maybe 300, but we were standing alone in a way and we felt that very much. But now 99 per cent of the world is thinking about the light, thinking about creating something to get there, and I think it’s a beautiful time in that sense. In this show, when you get to the last room, the footsteps lead us out to the light. We’re all together. yoko
