"We live in a world where we have to hide to make love, while violence is practiced in broad daylight."
- John Lennon
Pause. Think about that for a second. Really think about it. It's kind of mind blowing. Not to get too political here, but this quote struck a chord with me given the current events taking place in our world. It's crazy that words said over three decades ago could still be so relevant today. It's a reminder that no matter how far we've come, we have a very long way to go.
Watching all the things taking place in America, and the world at large, I tend to feel helpless; for I am just one tiny strand in the fabric. How can I really stop all this hate and violence? I began realizing I can't. But what I can do is put good into the world, every day, with love.
My look this week is inspired by the great John Lennon. Who can forget the iconic photo of him with folded arms and a straight face, wearing a New York City t-shirt with cut-off sleeves, and round dark-lens sunglasses? It's my favorite picture of him and the reason why I love this t-shirt and sunglasses so much.
Make love. Spread love. Be love.
