Yoko, How do you stay so trim and fit? You look fabulous and you can really dance too!
Thank you for your nice comment! I haven’t done anything for it, except loving to walk, and walk whenever I have a chance between my computer, artwork and making music. I’m a workaholic. Thank you, Universe!
What do you remember about your macrobiotic days? Can you tell us how this benefitted you and John?
John was on a diet of pancakes and coffee with lots of sugar. I thought that was horrible! I was once a cook in macrobiotic restaurant called Paradox in New York – just briefly. So I was still mostly on macrobiotic food but slipping since it was not easy to do it in London. Then miraculously, a macrobiotic restaurant opened in London! So I took John there. He loved it. Macrobiotic keeps you in good health and trim. You may not like the stuff they cook. But there are many other ways to keep you healthy and trim. So don’t worry. Just make your own diet of health and follow it.
Dear Yoko, Imagine if you were elected into power what would be the first thing you would change in order to restore balance in the world and also as a gesture to restore hope to the people? Many thanks in advance and One Love x
It helps to not preach but be – whatever you think will help us all to restore the balance of life and the planet. Just be. And don’t forget to breathe!

What is the most potent way to IMAGINE PEACE? Love and light to you Yoko thank you for being who you are! Blessings galore and then some more, god bless you Yoko and all those you love!
Thank you for sending me your love. I am so blessed because I basically love everybody. We are together on this Earth at a very hard time. Still we don’t forget to laugh – us and the monkeys. Of course I have the normal complaints of a human being. But I soon forget them and move on to the next exciting thing in life… like walking. IMAGINE PEACE!
Dear Yoko, lately I have been dealing with a lot of anger toward humanity. The GMOs in our food, the treatment of animals, they way we have treated each other, I have sort of lost my Zen about it. Do you and have you ever found yourself with anger about it, and how do you deal with your anger?
When I am angry, I just let it come out and complain to friends.. “you know so and so said this, can you imagine?! I thought he liked me. But I see that I was wrong.” But since I don’t hold it in and let it come out in bits, I don’t think it becomes too serious. Your complaint about the world situation is the same. Don’t hold it in.

Yoko – what are your thoughts and hopes for the youngest generation in America? Love from Veronika in Pasadena, CA.
If they are angry at us, I totally understand. We are about to leave them a lot of work to do. They probably don’t love us too much in such a situation. So I am not about to speak about what hopes I have for them. High order, that. Let’s just clean up as much of the mess we made as we can, and hope that their burden will be lighter for it.
Hi yoko! what do you do to relax after a long day?
I have a nap and start working againg when I wake up from it. Just now I have a lot to do. But I love working so it’s fine.
What do you daydream about ?
Days with skyblue.
Dear Yoko, I was watching an interview with you and John while in my studio the other day. You said that ‘Love is something to do with relaxation. When you’re guarded with somebody then you’re not relaxed. And when you’re guarded with somebody you can’t love that person. Love is when you understand it so well that you’re relaxed.’ I took this to mean that love is a form of relaxation, which is a lovely idea. Although I wonder if love is more a form of communication, or energy exchange with the world. Do you think that love is necessarily requires relaxation, or that relaxation just allows love to flow more easily? Love and peace to you and your truly original spirit, mind and soul and John’s too, always. xx
Chicken or the egg situation. Relaxation definitely makes love flow. And love definitely makes it easier for you to relax.
What was one of yours and John’s favorite things to do together?
To love one other, and to think of original ways to express our love.
It isn’t a question rather a thanks. Thank you for sharing memories about ‘Last days with John’ on 8th December. I think about it very often, it is the most beautiful thing I have ever read. John was a person with such a beautiful, sensitive heart. True love never dies! He still lives in ours hearts. Bless you, Yoko!
I am sure that he will never die, as long as he lives in our hearts.

I just LOVE how hands on you are with us …Yoko, that alone speaks volumes to me!! You “are “just what love is all about!! Peace to you beautiful one.
Hands on is me! Somebody may say: “How dare you do it your way and think that is alright?” Well, does one have a choice?
Konnie Sanders Yoakum
I don’t have a question, I just hope you have a wonderful day.
Thank you, Konnie, I will have a wonderful day, then. And I hope you do, too.
Why are people so foolish in the face of common sense when they obviously know better?
Anything you do is fine as long as it does not hurt anything or anybody, including yourself. Common sense keeps changing as the world changes. Don’t be afraid of change.
Hi, Yoko. Technology will destroy the man?
Some of us will fall in love with technology and get destroyed by it in the end. Some of us will fall in love nature and realize that nature doess not care about you. Some of us will fall in love with a heart or hearts and see eternity, before the end. Choose your ending.
Hi Yoko, can art still thrive in a world thats rapidly becoming a corporate wasteland?
Art has the power to change society with its good power. It is now working. Look around listen and see what it is doing. We are getting wiser and swifter to change all waselands into greenlands.

Years ago I saw your exhibition at MOMA. You had a painting on the floor with sign. Did you WANT us to Step On This?
I was giving you an option.

How do you continue to create art? I’ve had a few personal setbacks and I feel like I want to quit. How do you do it?
For me it’s like breathing. I have a need to do it.
What do you think is the most beautiful place in the whole world?
Where one is.
Sam Saturn●° @ARTPOP_CHILD
what is your advice for today’s youth? are we on the right track?
We have no right to complain about whatever they become. Think of the mess we have created for them. Let’s clean up the mess a bit, and then talk.
Jessica Annie White @jessica_annie_w
What one piece of advice what you give to a fine art student about to start university?
Don’t let the University teaching ruin you.
What’s the last thing that made you laugh? What’s the last thing you said or did that made someone else laugh?
I am laughing every day, so I have no idea what was the last. I think people are laughing at me every day, and if that makes them feel good, I am glad.

I love the album Take Me To The Land Of Hell. Do you do most of your song writing during the day or at night?
Night and day.
Do you love italian art & culture? If you support us, we will love you!
Who doesn’t love Italian art and culture! We have hardly come out of the Roman Empire.
We cannot ever repeat the grandeur of your art & culture. You are all in our hearts until we all perish.

Yoko what the best book you’ve read in the past 6 months
Mindfulness by Mark Williams & Danny Penman.
Mike Thomas @mikethomas1959
Hi Yoko Away from the media do you and Paul or Ringo ever meet up and do the Beatles children get on or meet up?
We do meet up. But our children all have their own minds. Merde!

How does a woman find her own voice?
You have already. But you are doubting yourself because your voice is very different from what the male society calls a “voice”. Women have a “voice” that is important for this planet. Believe in your voice. yoko
