9TH OCTOBER, 2010 ♥

We all shine on.


"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?" - John Lennon

As everyone would know thanks to Google's lovely animation, today is John Lennon's 70th birthday! I am yet to address my love and devotion (bordering on stalkerish obsession) toward all things Beatles, so here's a good time to start! Their music has meant so much to me for quite a few years now, and will always be something I consider to be a big part of my life. I'm not a crazy collector or anything, it's more about their philosophies, world impact and musical legacy for me.

Whilst I'm being a dramatic fangirl here, I'll claim that their lyrics and personal quotes have changed the way I see life on numerous occasions. Although not my 'favourite Beatle', John was a big part of this musical education, so it's nice to take a minute to thank him for the beautiful imprints he left on this world, and hope he is resting peacefully on his birthday.


Here are some of my favourite pictures associated with John, as well as some of his own art:
