Tomorrow is December 8th, 2007. What this means to me is the 27th anniversary of the senseless murder of one of my childhood heroes, John Lennon.

I am always a little sad on this day, as I remember his death very clearly, and where I was, and what I did (my legs actually went out from under me). Tomorrow I will light a white candle in my home and let it burn throughout the day.

Just wanted to post a little something for John...

We all shine on
Like the stars
Like the moon
Like the sun
Yes we all shine on
Everyone
On and on


End of "Instant Karma" John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band

Not into Dimebag Darrell, but just looked it up and, yes, it was.
The sick thing to me is that 12/8 is also the day some buddhists celebrate Buddha's birthday

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

From In my Life.

I remember the night Dimebag died very well. For those of you who don't know, Dimebag Darrell was the guitarist in a band called Pantera, who in the terms of metal were one of the most known bands. Pantera disbanded and he formed Damageplan, they were playing onstage and a "fan" came up onstage and shot and killed him midway through the first song.

Yesterday I came across a book Lennon wrote. I posted it in "Post a book you're reading."

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere alone

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Everyday we used to make it love
Why can't we be making love nice and easy
It's time to spread our wings and fly
Don't let another day go by my love
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

One of my most favorite songs...

I believe that today was the day that John Cage died as well.
