Hi Yoko, How have you been lately?

I have been challenged by many unexpected ups and downs!

steven womble ‏@gringostarr
What is one your favorite funny movies ? <3

I like documentary films and don’t watch fiction as much. And documentaries are not so funny these days!

Felicia Marano ‏@cutelyobsessive
How do I become more confident?

By forgetting to try to be confident.

ipiutiminelle ‏@ipiouart
Do you think art is the best way to make ourselves heard ? ✌❤

It is a good way, if you make it good. It all depends on the individual artist.

artocracy ‏@artocracy1
Who is your favourite living visual artist?

There are many. Robert Gober is one of the most superb. His exhibition ‘The Heart Is Not A Metaphor’ is now on at MoMA in New York. If you have the time to go to it, you should definitely do. Also Olafur Eliasson’s ‘Ice Watch’ – A clock face of 100 tonnes of Greenlandic ice melting outside City Hall Square in Copenhagen to encourage us to think about climate change.

Lorella Corti ‏@Lory997
What would you say to young people about the future?

The future is what you and I make of it.

✌️ Liliana ✌️ ‏@LennonPeaceGirl
For someone who wants to be a inspiring writer, what advice could you give to help me succeed?

You are already half way there for wanting to be one. All of us succeed in what we wish to succeed in, not in what we are unsure of and asking others if you would succeed or not. The reason is obvious. Nobody except you wants to see you succeed in anything, except maybe your mother?

RudderSoul ‏@spookoffrashmi
In what way can the young people, especially us students, spread the gospel of peace in this world now?

Just keep on spreading the thought in your own way. Think Peace, Act Peace, Spread Peace, Imagine Peace at all times.

Katt Franich ‏@KattooBoom
How far do you think peace has come to succeed as a whole over the years? Do you believe it has improved?

We would definitely improve faster if you join as well.

Any news from Nutopia lately?

I think you’ve heard from them, David. Tell us how they are doing.

Rae Ono
If you could work with any musician you have not yet been presented the opportunity to, who would it be?

Somebody I have not yet heard the name of yet…

Mari Mcnamee
Hi Yoko, I totally agreed with your comments on the lovely town of Folkestone. When I arrived there I was helped by a volunteer who explained where the exhibits were located around town. The entire day was very enjoyable. At the end of the day I asked a kind young man for directions to the train. He walked with me for 45 minutes to make sure I found it and told me about his town along the way. It couldn’t have been a better experience! What’s next?

I’m not the kind of person who says “What’s next?” I stick to my love. That’s why I have so many great diamonds on my necklace. They are all towns I discovered and learned to grow with them.

Jana Kaplan
Hi Yoko. I wonder what your secret is… in terms of looking and feeling young. Do you imbibe caffeine? Do you drink only water? Do you do yoga, or any certain type of exercise? Hope you enjoy your weekend. Much love.

Life is hard enough, first to have been disciplined by your parents, then your teacher, then your mate and the in-laws called the world. I just feel I need to learn to relax, enjoy life and save my health through it. Don’t be ashamed of wearing what you want to wear, eating what you want to eat, chatting with whom you want to chat, and looking good and feeling good as a result of it.

Vanessa Clark
My favorite song of yours is “Beautiful Boys”. Was that song about John and Sean?

It is about all the men I knew – my husband, my son, and the world.

Irene Davy
After listening to the Milk and Honey CD, I cried for your loss of John. How have you survived such a great loss? What has inspired you to keep going?

My heart.

Frank Lin
Dear sweet Yoko, while visiting my daughter and her family in Wakayama City I liked that I was able to identify post offices by the T symbol with the extra line. At a yard sale I found a mail bag that has that symbol and that says Japanese Mail. I liked it because it reminded me of my lovely trip to Japan. When I looked up its history I learned it was a mail bag from an interment camp. What should I do with it? Give it to an organization like the Japan Society? I felt bad but my daughter pointed out that I bought it out of love. Thank you. Linda

Everything has a history of joy and sorrow. We should not be afraid to use them. Give it your love.

Regina Ramirez
When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?

A writer.

Grant Collinsworth
If there were one ‘silver bullet’ that could effectively perpetuate the kind of love that stops hate throughout the world, what would that be?

Bury the silver bullet in your back yard, quickly. Ask the whole world to send love to each other, instead.

James Zarindast
Do you believe in Magic?

Don’t you?

  4. joseph martin says:

    Joseph Martin john is a light that will never go out for all you need is love will continue to feed this light
    he was a poet, songwriter, composer, a father, a champion for peace but most of all he was just a man. unlike paul m. he could feel and write a…bout pain and longing and reach the depths of dispair and somehow it was beautiful Help i need somebody, so i sing a song of love for julia, mother you had me but i never had you, women you understand the little child inside a man, i was dreaming in the past and my heart was beating fast, if you want money for people with minds that hate all i can tell you brother you’ll have to wait, war is over if you want it, no need for greed or hungar a brotherhood of man,but most of all IN MY LIFE I LOVE YOU MORE
    happy birthday john you are loved and i and millions more will miss you

  5. Felipe says:

    Yoko, your message is beautiful and we still believe in Peace.

    Here in South America we fight everyday for our beliefs, our ideals, our peace motives and for the beauty of life.

    Sometimes is very hard to swim against the currents, against over consumption, against the media, against the powerful and their money.

    But when i saw you and your willpower to keep screaming for peace and love for everyone, i feel alive now and i’ll keep yelling and working to build a better world for us all.

    Thank you Yoko. Mata ne!

    Felipe Nadeau.

  6. Shrujana says:

    • Yoko Ono says:

      Hi Jen! It’s nice that you participated in the scream piece and screamed. Your scream joined all the other screams of that piece performed in MOMA, and is sending out a strong vibration and making a strong statement to the world. love, yoko

    HI Yoko,

    I am doing a write up on Cut Piece. I was wondering what is a message or representation you were trying to say with this piece?

    Thanks,

    Kallie

  12. Sonia says:

    Thank you for the answers that you shared to me especially about questions related when you were expecting a baby with John.. One of my favorites is you are craving meat and cabbage and about morning sickness.. hope if you don’t mind I could post some questions that was bugging in my head. it is all about Sean when he was not yet born (I mean inside your womb)… again thank you…

  13. Love your response to my query, thank you so much for your work. You’re absolutely right about love.
