Hi Yoko its been a long time. How have you been?

Oh, really?! I’ve been good. Good like a New York cat.

Nick Hart
Hi Yoko, I love your songwriting, especially on ‘Sometime in NYC’ and ‘Double Fantasy’. ‘Sisters O Sisters’, ‘Let Me Count The Ways’ and ‘Hard Times Are Over” are killer songs.

Thank you! Sometmes you need to hear something nice in return… not just dishing out, you know.

Helen Richardson
Do you write every day? Why do you think as we become older that we are more interested in others and the good of all, rather than only our own lives?

Because we start to get sense that I am you and you are me and we are all together – as the song says.

Mariana Carranza
How do you keep strong and true to yourself? I remember your song “I’m a Witch” I feel so related to it. Sometimes it’s hard for witches to keep strong

Yeah, sometimes it looks like it’s always the same. But I think it is getting better. Thank Godess!

Michael Svensson
In 1986 shortly after the murder of Olof Palme you came to Stockholm on your Starpeace-tour. I remember a emotional night with wise words from stage and fans singing along after the concert ended. Do you remember that night? Love from Stockholm.

Of course, I remember. I was one of the Olof fans.

Regina Ramirez
I’m attending The Sakura Cherry Blossom Festival in Philadelphia PA on Sunday. Have you ever attended the festival in Japan? Or maybe in another city? I love this festival.

I attended the one in Washington D.C. a few times. In Japan, you always check the cherry blossom in April. It’s everywhere. People go to the park to watch the beautiful flowers. That’s called HANAMI. “Observing the Flowers” ritual. we have three rituals: HANAMI, TSUKIMI, and YUKIMI. HANAMI is watching the flowers. TSUKIMI is watching the moon, YUKIMI is watching the snow. It’s a beautiful tradition when you invite people to watch with you. I remember them all.

Joseph Laychock
Yoko, do you believe in a god or some type of energy that is out there? If so, how do you describe it?

The Power of Goodness. I get the benefit of its help.

Nathalie Moreira
What was the most romantic thing a man made for you? xx from Brazil

Songs by John.

Fiona Capuano
What was your childhood pastime?

Breathing. I would sit in a room by myself and count my breathing.

Marian Grgas Finicle
Are you a city girl or a country girl?

A city girl, definitely.

Heather Maier
What is making you smile right now?

I’m getting a rest after a hard days work, sitting alone in my room and wtching the sky from the window. It’s good to know that you worked all day!

What do you advise young poets to do on rainy Sundays?

Dream.

Anne Ferrell Quillen
What words can you offer someone who has experienced the loss of their most beloved person?

No words can make up for what she/he lost.

What was your favorite band/artist back in the 60′s?

I didn’t know any bands until I met John Lennon.

Clara Anastasia ‏@anastasiacl
Since when did you decide to be an activist and what moved you specifically to continue to be one?

We are all activists in varying degrees. We have to save ourselves from this horrible polluted and war-torn world, and we all know it and knew it.

Jessica ‏@SolarJess
Firstly I’d like to say I admire you and your strength. Do you meditate? How do you overcome things you don’t have control over?

Yes. Meditation helps. But doing healthy and good things make you naturally overcome bad things.

Fereshta ‏@Fereshta
What is your definition of a successful life?

A life that you’ve learned to love more and more.

Albert Perdu ‏@smirkbot
Would you consider playing ‘Approximately Infinite Universe’ live?

I am busy playing new songs because they are coming to me through my present life.

UMI ‏@umifeb_rumi
Do you drink raw juice? If so what is your favourite ingredients?

I only drink juice when I am in Iceland. I know. It just happened that way. They have a great combination of green juice and ginger juice. Maybe becasue it is a cold country, I was first suprrised to see people queueing for Ginger juice! That’s pretty hesavy stuff!

Busy Puffin ‏@Busy_Puffin
In a letter to Elbow you sad NY had given you so much, this struck me as a very kind answer-did it take long to believe?

John would have said the same thing. We loved New York, and its city was kind to us. The tragedy that happened to us could have happened anywhere.

Jason Brock ‏@jasonbroccoli
What is your biggest passion now?

Let’s clean up the planet and bring world peace!

PawL BaZiLe ‏@PawLBAZiLe
What keeps you young?

I don’t know. But I am very thankful for it. It makes it easier for me to go on doing work. I try to keep my thoughts clean. When your thoughts are clean, it makes you feel lighter. But it is hard to do it, believe me. I do get upset about things happening in the world.

Danielle Meyer ‏@DanielleMeyer__
If you could be invisible for one day, where would you go?

I would walk around the city without having have to say no to people who want to take their photograph with me. I feel awful to have to say no, but there are too many people who want it.

    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.
