Strawberry Fields Forever

December makes me think of John Lennon. If you haven’t been to Strawberry Fields, a memorial to him on Central Park West opposite the Dakota, it’s worth a trip just for that, especially in spring or early summer. Other parts of the park in that vicinity are interesting as well, and the Museum of Natural History is nearby.

A lot of people come through the area where this tiled circle has been inlaid. But for some strange reason, no music is allowed from early morning to about 4 p.m., when a caretaker leaves. Then people start showing up with instruments.

    I remember very clearly when Lennon was shot. I was in the middle of having a mild argument with my wife when I heard the news and thought that Lennon was being silenced by the new regime just voted to power in Washington (Reagan administration). That set me off and I ended up throwing a chair in our kitchen. Luckily, I think, my conspiracy theory was unfounded.
