  1. It wouldn't be Abbey Roads if I did not note the anniversary of his death. May he rest in peace.

  2. Amen.
    I remember this because I was in college at the time and saw it on the television...it was not long after Reagan's assassination attempt, I believe.
    Anyhoo, I wanted to wish you a blessed feast of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady.
    My prayers and blessing, Terry.
    God loves you, Jesus loves you and Mary loves you.
    And so do many others.
    Know that, deeply, in your heart.

  4. Since you're in a spiritual mood, you might want to take a look at, "The Cynical Idealist: A Spiritual Biography of John Lennon," by author and artist Gary Tillery (Quest Books).

    An excerpt from the book at http://tinyurl.com/yg4bkjt ponders, "What Would John Lennon Do" in response to current events. Certainly, you can make the case that he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize more than certain current recipients.

    Rest in Peace.
