If you’re like me, you like John Lennon’s music and wish he was still making it today.
If you’re like me, you are indifferent about Yoko.
Or even dislike her. “She broke up the Beatles, Man!”
Actually, I am starting to dislike Yoko.
Yoko Ono is set to unveil a ‘light tower’ in Iceland on October 9, on what would have been John Lennon’s 67th birthday.
Ono collaborated with engineers from Iceland and Japan on the Imagine Peace Tower, which she designed to collect “wishes for world peace”.
The tower is a beam of light emanating from a giant wishing well, which features the words ‘imagine peace’ in 24 languages, says the Associated Press.
It will be lit every year from October 9 (Lennon’s birthday) to December 8 – the anniversary of his death.
The tower was built in Iceland because “it is a very eco-friendly country that relies on geothermal energy”, said Ono.
She plans to bury every wish in capsules around the tower, so that the open space will turn into a forest.
Ono says the tower is the “the biggest birthday present I gave to John”.
If she had any style at all, Yoko would stay in the background during celebrations of John’s 67th birthday on Oct. 9th. Let John and his music be centre stage.
