  •  I was 14 and woke at 5:00 a.m. to the sound of (9+ / 0-)

    my clock radio playing "Imagine" on a continuous loop.  It was an eerie sound in the pitch dark of an early December morning. I knew something was wrong . . .

    Then the DJ's voice came on: "John Lennon was shot to death last night in New York City.  John Lennon is dead.  Long live John Lennon."

    It was horrible.  I threw on the lights in my room, unable to bear the darkness, and felt that my childhood was surely over.

    I am simple, complex, generous, selfish, unattractive, beautiful, lazy, and driven. ~Barbra Streisand
