if we find lots of people going the wrong way at the same time, how can we change their directions all at once?

You can put a big sign post out saying “Oh, Oh, you are walking right into the land of HELL. Go the other way, where it takes you to the land of lots of fun!”

Liz Rood ‏@netzardfan
Saw U at Van Gogh exhibit in DC last year when it was there. What is your impression of his intense, disturbed genius?

It takes all sorts to make a human race.

D.A.A.S ‏@Harrypageld
You are my inspiration! Do you have any advice for me? I’m a 19 years old musician xoxo :)

Go on living for many years. One day you will be able to give yourself the advice you wanted.

Ever find it emotionally difficult to express/ finish something? How do You deal with that if so? Where do You find bravery?

I stop what was difficult to do, come back when I feel I want to try again.

Do you still have a connection with Strawberry Fields in Liverpool? I know you did, not sure now? Happy Easter.

I have the sweet memory as the connection.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw ur wish tree at the Peggy Guggenheim in Venice. Would u consider doing another wish tree?

Wish Trees are all over the world now… as though they are wishing to cover our planet.

Jessica Brookes ‏@jessicabrookes
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

Do you ever think you will not fail? We always feel we do, don’t we? That’s what we have to overcome, and we will – with the help of imagining.

Scott Dunlop ‏@Squidsquirt
What are you most proud of as a parent?

Hi Yoko, thanks for your inspiration and thinking forward. Question: I once read that John was inspired by the band Queen, did he also already listen to the upcoming bands like U2, The Police, Blondie… ?

Yes. All that and more!

Anne Ferrell Quillen
Thank you so much for responding to my question last week. I asked what to say to someone who lost their most beloved person. You made me realize the better question is this: What actions did others take which provided you the most help and/or comfort during the sorrow you have experienced? Thank you for your inspiration.

Thank you for letting me know. 

Michael Horn
Happy Easter Weekend! +Yoko Ono Love & Peace

Yoko, after being inspired by your exhibition ‘War is Over’ (if you want it) students at Katoomba North Public School from New South Wales, Australia would like to invite you to our Mother’s Day morning tea at 10.30 am on the 7th May in our school hall to celebrate our ‘message to mum wall’. Students have been busy creating loving messages to their mums and carers and would like to share them with you. Kindest Regards, Patricia Abela

If you make a book out of all the messages people put on the wall about their mothers, you will share something warm with the world.

Justyna Goździewska
Yesterday was Vladimir Putin’s QandA day on russian television. If you could ask him one question what would it be?

I will not ask any question to him. He needs love not questions.

Tanya Kuznetsova from Moscow
What is the best to do – to leave your country and enjoy your life or to stay and try to make it better? How to achieve piece, if that’s not the government policy?

Be peaceful and you will see that peace is very catching.

Michael CanadaMan Gonzalez
Dear Yoko, I’m hoping for some advice and what steps one could take to be recognized in the visual art world.

The visual world will recognize you if it wants to. But don’t count on it.

Janet Hussein Hess
What have you found to be the best ways to deal with anger?

Imagine there’s no anger. It’s easy if you try…

Hilary Jaeger
When I was 12 or 13, I went to a fluxus exhibit where you were exhibiting some of your work. I remember crawling through a series of wooden boxes. A film was being shown, I think it was Fly. This was in NYC, around 1968. My question is, were the wooden boxes real or is that something I imagined?

They were cardboard boxes, not wooden. You imagined them to be wooden, maybe because I wanted to make it with wood, but it was simpler with cardboard.

Sunnie J. Smith
Hello Yoko, can you tell me, in your opinion, what is the most pressing issue of the present time and how do you think that we, as Americans can effect a meaningful and lasting change?

There’s no such thing as a lasting change. That’s an oximoron. Let’s keep changing together with a smile and a wink.

Julia Stanisławska
I’ve got two questions. 1. I have always wondered about this one. How did John propose to you and when was it? 2. Are you planning to do anything special next year?

The answer to the first question is; none of your business. The second one: Every year is special for me.

Tomasz Woźniak
What was John’s favourite movie?

We both were film freaks. So it would take a week to write down our favourites.

Prince
What are you reading nowadays Yoko? and which is or are the most significant haikus for you?

I am just now finish reading THE WOMEN by Hilton Als. It’s a book I immediately listed for recommendation on IMAGINEPEACE.com. All Basho’s haikus are incredibly significant.

Patty Gann
What is your comfort food? is it Japanese, learned in your childhood or American, since you have spent most of your life in America? btw, i was just at Narita airport in Tokyo yesterday on my way to Seoul and had some really good udon noodles topped with tempura shrimp in a restaurant there.

My comfort food is the one my tummy says YES to. However, my tummy changes every day what it says YES to! yoko

    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.
