John Lennon’s birthday was October 9, which means celebration time here in New York City. Some of us head over to Strawberry Fields in Central Park every year to remember John and sing and cry and just let it all out.
My friend David Ippolito is known as That Guitar Man from Central Park. He plays the most amazing music on Saturdays when it’s warm enough to chill outside. All the best folk stuff: James Taylor, Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, like that. He went to Strawberry Fields and filmed John’s birthday party. If you want to feel what it was like, take a look:
You might say I’m a dreamer
but I’m not the only one.
I hope one day you will join us
and the world will live as one.
Thanks for inspiring peace, John. We remember.
