Yoko

Suddenly I feel a little better about my own dancing ability.  🙂 If you think about it, John chose Yoko at the peak of Beatlemania.  He was popular, young, rich, handsome, and creative; he could have (almost literally) had any woman on the planet. She must have been pretty special. (By the way, Yoko enjoyed …

I never knew that things exploded…

Twinkle

“I’ve met a lot of people who are rich and famous, and all this and that. And I’m fortunate to have gotten to the point where, now, I just meet ‘people.’ Whatever they think they are, whatever they would like to be, whoever they really are, I just meet them and I see them. I …

Happy Together

I love the expression on Yoko’s face in the second one, and the way they flow so easily together in the last one. But what I like most of all is that there’s not likely to be any music playing in any of those four places.  😀 I found this animated .gif set on Tumblr, …

Simplicity

The Guest House by Rumi This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each …

“A Tale of Two Concerts,” or “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”

Mona and I went to see Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band last night at the Verizon Theatre in Dallas.  We bought the tickets the same day they went on sale, and were really looking forward to it. But it was weird. It was like watching two totally different concerts.  Ringo was everything I wanted …

This song was mentioned on a board discussing favorite Beatles cover songs, and I thought it was worth sharing. Full lyrics HERE.

Everyone should…

As a novice ukulele player and a lifelong George Harrison fan, I can’t tell you how encouraging something like this is! Read the article this was taken from- and watch some cool videos- over at Open Culture.

Along Comes Mary

I’m on kind of a Mary Hopkin kick.  (Don’t worry, I’m sure it will pass quickly.) Her story is just so fascinating.  Twiggy saw her on a local talent show and called her friend Paul McCartney, who then contacted her and ultimately made her one of the first artists signed to Apple Records. Can you …

Mary Hopkin

The song was written and produced by Paul McCartney, and I think you’d know that even if I hadn’t just told you. It’s pretty obvious. Full lyrics HERE.
