9-11 Ten years later.

So many blogs have been talking today about the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. It is very difficult to comprehend that it was really 10 years ago. That also means that we lost George 10 years ago soon as well.

I think I posted the best story about 9-11 from a Beatles fan first hand account last year. So here is the link for that post. It is well worth re-reading.

I am also posting a photo that I took at Strawberry Fields this past June. For those of you who have never been to Strawberry Fields in Central Park in New York City, let me explain. Around the Imagine mosaic are benches that have small plaques on them. These were donated by various individuals and groups. Yoko has one and the family of Lennon biographer, Ray Coleman, has one in his memory. But this one from the city of Liverpool really touched my heart. Having been to both Liverpool and New York City in recent years, I have a love for both. I felt it was a touching gesture and well worth sharing with the readers of this blog.


  1. I hope this doesn't sound too much like a downer.
    Like most of you old enough I still remember exactly where and when I heard John had been murdered.
    I still have a vivid memory of when I opened the newspaper and read George had left us.
    Now I shudder at the probability that (many, many, many) years from now I will have to go through all that again. I'm really struggling with the idea.
    I will be such an empty world.

    Since 1963

  2. Since '63: I have struggled with the fact that I will eventually live in a world where there are no living Beatles. I wonder what will happen to the fans. I wonder what will happen to me emotionally. It is something I think each of us has to ponder, even though it is a very sad thing to think about.
