The Last Interview And Much More

I finally got around to reading an article that I’ve been looking forward to. The December 23, 2010-January 6, 2011 issue of Rolling Stone features the last interview John Lennon ever gave. Three days before his death he talked with Rolling Stone for more than nine hours in his New York city apartment. That interview is presented for the first time in this issue.

The interview is very interesting for all the obvious reasons. I strongly suggest reading this unique insight into Lennon’s personal life. At the time he was preparing to step back into the limelight after five years of private life with Yoko Ono and their young son, Sean.

What really captivated me though was a remembrance piece that Yoko wrote. You’ll find her article featured with the last Lennon interview, which recounts their relationship and last days together. I had no idea what an amazing writer Yoko is. I was seriously hanging on to every word of this profound narrative. What a unique gift of delivery. You need to see for yourself and she will allow you to do just that.

Yoko also reveals a Lennon quote that really jumped out at me. Apparently he always used to say “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That makes a lot of sense to me. That is why it took me over a month to finally read this article in Rolling Stone that I was so excited about. Life once again happened. On a deeper level I think we all constantly make plans but the end result doesn’t usually manifest as we planned, if at all. We may sometimes get to that end result but we rarely carry out the plan exactly how we drew it up.

Life’s blueprints are not like an architect’s. I love that about life, it really is a journey. Make plans and act positively to reach your goals but know it’s likely you’ll find some new interesting ways to achieve them. Do the right things but don’t get discouraged when things don’t go according to plan. Enjoy the ride, that’s what it’s all about!
