John Lennon Imagine

I feel, as we near the thirty fifth anniversary since this great composer was taken away from us, that the message of this song, perhaps his non plus ultra, more than deserves being reinforced. From a post I made on this blog in October, 2013:
"To me, with this song John brought out the things that upon reflection make life worth living, those things that are beyond cultural or temporal aesthete in terms of archetypal beauty.

I myself truly believe that John's visions of a brotherhood of man, of everyone working together, feeding and sheltering and not unduly judging others can be made a reality. And if that makes me a hopeless romantic, an insufferable idealist, so be it.

The centuries have proven that man is capable of bringing what's inside out into the real world. The seemingly supernatural advances in technology are a great example of the formidable powers of men and women working together. I think we should all get together and work toward a common goal of no more wars, no more killing people, no more judging.

Reach within, everybody. It all starts with us...and our imaginations.
