All You Need... Is Love

Today is an anniversary many people don't wish to acknowledge. It's surreal in a way to think it's been nearly thirty years, yet the music sounds fresh and relevant, as though we're hearing it for the first time. A few years ago, while visiting friends in Connecticut we went into New York City for sightseeing. When asked what I wanted to see, foremost in my mind was Strawberry Fields.

To get there, we had to pass the Dakota. We all know what happened there. Even today, people walk past and shiver. I have pictures taken from across the street, but for some reason I couldn't bring myself to cross and move closer. That experience partly inspired this story I've put up for sale.

I wanted to do something to commemorate the life, rather than his senseless end. With this story, while short, I hope to convey some kind of feeling about what the music means to one person. I've decided, too, to donate what I make off this story and give to WHY, an organization devoted to eliminating hunger. John supported the charity, and Yoko continues to do so - perhaps this is one little step to take. When I'm able to, I'll try to match sales with my own contributions.

Follow-up to Leigh’s story, Surveillance. On a pilgrimage to New York City to pay their respects to a fallen hero, Dean and Troy imagine a life of peace and celebrate a night of love.

Proceeds from the sale of this story are donated to WHY, promoting solutions to eliminate hunger and poverty.
