It’s Saturday but I won’t be able to do a post tomorrow.
I knew exactly the song I wanted but when I wrote today’s date, I burst into tears.
38 years ago today we lost John Lennon. I was stopped on the I 90 bridge in rush hour traffic.
I was searching for music, but every station was playing “Imagine”. Oh God, I knew immediately what that meant.
Back then, I also burst into tears .
You know how, in traffic, you can catch people movement in the car next to you? I turned to see a young man, way younger than me, also sobbing. We locked eyes for a long, long time, just crying. We had both just heard, and we knew it.
What an incredibly powerful and intimate moment. I’ll never forget his eyes.
And this version is from one of my favorite movies…ever. I am an all-the-way-out-of-the-closet Mush Head!! But if you like a good “teacher” movie, this is a must.
Now I’m going to go hug my beautiful, beautiful boys….
