” You say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” – John Lennon
While shopping in Target I came upon these sunglasses and E V E R Y T H I N G about John Lennon came rushing at me. Obviously his staple glasses are beyond my target purchase but I can see why his were so significant to him. I can’t explain what he felt putting them on everyday, but I will say my pair of sunglasses definitely transported me to whole ‘nother era.
Wearing these shades takes me to his lyrics from ‘Beautiful Boy’,
.. before you cross the street, take my hand. Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans ..
Sometimes we forget to live in the moment, to enjoy current events, most of which are usually small things but make a big impact. There are the adult things, where we are planning for a future we know is not certain. We’d like to just put on shades, a facade and carry on arranging.
..but life is too short. We should wear them to enjoy the world in the moment, as is. No planning, no organizing, nothing but the current moment.
