Guest Post: Imagine!
I don't think that my pal Otilius knew what an awesome thing he'd done for me when he finally made it down to 72nd and Central Park West to take a picture of one of the most amazing places I've ever seen. See, I'm a huge John Lennon fan, and I have been since the womb. John's music was one of the things that I shared with my grandpa that no one else in my family understood. Hell, I even have a tattoo of the cover of the "Imagine" film that I got not only as a tribute to a great musician, but to an even greater man.
My grandfather died last July, and we played "Strawberry Fields Forever" at his funeral...forever changing the meaning of the song for me. Little things though, like this photo, my tattoo, walruses, submarines, and skies of diamonds keep his memory picture perfect.
While I am away from NYC this holiday season, I will have some Guest Posts as a bit of a Year in Review. Tomorrow's photo will be new.
I had a good year visually and hope you enjoyed a photo or two yourself. To all the viewers of New York Nitty-Gritty, I wish you and yours a fantastic Merry Christmas!
