Strawberry Fields Forever
30 years ago today, John Lennon was killed.
I have been to the Strawberry Fields memorial for Lennon in Central Park a couple of times, and both times I was struck by what a peaceful place it was, despite being right next to a main road. I always find it so touching that people still go and lay flowers and leave letters and poems for him. It is a great testament to Lennon's intelligence and genius that people still care so much about him, this many years on. I wish I was in New York today so that I could be there (but then again, I always wish I was in New York).
