Kathi Klauber
Yoko.. how are you doing today?

I am very thankful that it’s finally going to be spring… well, they said that…

D.j. Jeschke
Hi, Yoko! I’m going through a really stressful period. I don’t have the time or focus to meditate. Do you meditate, or have any other ways to keep yourself centered and calm? I’m sure your music and art are really helpful. Thanks, and have a terrific weekend! Love, xo

The natural balance made by my various activities do keep my mental balance it seems. I think it is important to know your particular way of balancing. If you start to meditate, you should let yourself do that. But if you just tell yourself, you must meditate to keep yoursself centered and calm, it will simply upset you. So in a situation like that, don’t count on meditation to help you. Just take a nap or walk in a quiet street in which you enjoy walking. It will work wonders.

Hello dear Yoko, what you think about the technological world in which we live today, you see it as something positive or negative? I personally think it’s brilliant for science, but not for society, children do not read books! Alarmingly, I really would like to know your opinion.

It all depends on the individual. Even with children, some children would like to play baseball, and some just want to play with the computer. It’s all bad, if you think it is bad. It’s all good if you think it makes you feel good. While you are doing something that makes you love it, you will learn many things. Reading books is not the only way you learn about life.

Angela Mata
Do you think celebrity interferes with folks really seeing you as you? And if it did does it ever frustrate you?

Being what I am sometimes makes me feel lonely. But that is a problem we all experience. I would be a spoiled girl if I ever complained about that. When it gets very bad, I just count my blessings!

Robert Quinn
Hello Mrs. Ono Lennon. I saw you perform with your son Sean (and his band) in Manhattan (Lower East Side I think) about 13 years ago. Are you still collaborating with him? You are both very talented! Love to see you again! Thanks! Peace!

When we were collaborating playing my songs, it was great. We both enjoyed it. But soon we realized that we were boxed in to doing just that. Sean needed to spread his wings. Now, he does that, and people see that he was not just a great collaborator. This is what we needed to do. And now you are getting music from both of us – some from me, and some from Sean.

Sara Wagoshe Ramsay
Miss Yoko, My question is how did you keep yourself together when you and John first got together and people were being so cruel? My husbands family hates me beyond reason because I am Catholic, and Native American. You have always been a source of strength and courage for me. Thank you for setting an example of how to do it with grace and dignity.

You can’t please everybody. But when it is your husband’s family, I am sure it is very difficult. Maybe your husband needed to be his own man. So you shouldn’t feel bad about yourself. You are helping him to be him.

John Dee
Hello Yoko. Thanks for being awesome!! What inspires you these days, are you reading any good books lately?

I’ve read a very interesting book lately in Japanese. It is a book that must be translated for English speaking people to read. I am trying to make that happen. You will hear about the book when it is translated. I hope it will happen soon.

David Liljemark
Do (or did) you ever get starstruck?

Not really. Because I see that it is not easy for stars.

Nick Detaranto
Is there one place that you always wanted to travel to but never made it to?

There are so many places I have not been yet! I love to travel and I shall.

Rachel Malone
Dear Sweet Yoko, Do you have magic glasses or have you always been so infinitely spiritually wise? Thank you for being an inspirational songbird in so many ways.

I think necessity leads to where we go. In my life, I had to quickly understands things of a spiritual nature if I wanted to survive at all.

Kristina Saunders Kaylor
Yoko, you’re amazing! Absolutely beautiful, and full of light. You are such an inspiration. I wish you all great things! Thank you for being you.

I hope you will have the time to look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself how great you are. Greatness is what we all share to keep working on bettering our world.

Haley Novak
Hello Yoko, What is the biggest advice you have to share with teenagers of this generation?

It’s time to exchange what we know, and help each other to create a great future.


Vanessa Clark ‏@FoxxyGlamKitty
What can we expect from your upcoming MoMA exhibit?

Things that I’ve learned from life.

Felicia Marano ‏@cutelyobsessive
Hi Yoko! Do you believe robots will take over the world?

Fear what is to be feared in your life now. What happens later, we can take care of later – when and if it happens.

Robert H Burke ‏@Spirit1940
Are you still a farmer in upstate New York? “Old Dirt Road” is a great anti-fracking song.

Old Dirt Road is a great song, whatever it is for you.

Dana Francisco ‏@portionsfordana
Do you believe that love is telepathic?

It could be.

CrazyRachel ‏@Rachellovesuall
How do you feel about technology today and how do you think John would react?

John Lennon and Aldous Huxley would have felt totally comfortable in today’s world. They have helped to create it.

LeeLee (Elena) ‏@YoungNStrange
Have you ever had an Out-Of-Body-Experience in your sleep? If so, what was it like? Where did you travel to?

All sleep experiences are to travel out-of-body, I think. It sometimes gives us great wisdom, and sometimes is good fun.

Albert Murrian ‏@AlbertBMurrian
I love the song “Don’t Be Scared” from the MILK AND HONEY album. The lyrics and melody are beautiful. It gives me strength. Thx!

Thank you for letting me know.

ayvid p ‏@entities
Hi yoko, one of your artworks ‘Earth Piece’ is on display at the Kochi Biennale. Would love to hear your thoughts on this conceptual art.

All artworks are conceptual. The part you see is only part of what it really is.

Mike Thomas ‏@mikethomas1959
I am a postman and I deliver physical mail to people, you seem to do it mentally with your Tweets, incredible. I am a great admirer of yours Yoko for the way you won over millions of Beatles fans, was it as tough as it seemed?

I never thought to win over Beatles fans. I celebrate the fact that they are Beatles fans. People should love what they love and that will give you the wisdom you need.

Natasha MJ lennon ‏@tasha_loves_mj_
I think you are amazing. You are never afraid to show the world the real you and that is beautiful. I think you’re awesome.

Look at your awesome self in the mirror. It is where you are getting your energy from and giving to us as well. I love you!

    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.

      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
