John Lennon, 26 Years Gone

John Lennon remains one of my personal heroes. I wasn't conscious of him when he was alive, but nonetheless he's had a huge impact on my life. His way of putting the complex into simple terms. His genuine desire for peace and understanding. And the music, of course. Nothing I can say will do this man justice, of course. There's wonderful salute here by Martin Lewis that I thought did the job.

I miss him. I miss the simplicity of a man who really believed that war is over, if you want it. Why can't it be?

Crap! Has it been that long? I am really getting old.

Yep, it's that long, and I am starting to feel my age too.
