Yoko Ono answers your questions every Friday on Twitter & Facebook.


Friday 19 June 2015

Randy Pope
Dear Yoko, how are you doing?

I didn’t think that MOMA would be such a grand event. I had to concentrate on keeping my health at the same time.

Rhonda Remesnik
What have you enjoyed while in Chicago♡?

Chicago is a very “Shibui city.” Magical without trying. Peoples IQs seem to be way up! I observed them through the misty rain. Chicago seems very interested in creating communication with the outside world. I love the fact that there are such cities in this country.

Leonor Quinteros Ochoa
Do you have experienced premonitions? Do you think we have to trust them?

I never want to rely on my premonitions. So when I have one, I tend to ignore it and notice it after.

Jennifer A Hill
Thank you for being awake! How can we grow women’s culture to include more disenfranchised and poor? I want wrap them in a loving blanket of amazing art and music.

I am remembering that I don’t just love blue skies. I always loved grey skies as well. To me, growing up is awakening to the beauty of all people and all things in life. And I’m still growing.

Katie Ann Lambeth
Stigma toward mental illness is an illness in itself. What do you feel could be helpful for someone in recovery, who chooses to be open in order to educate, but also faces discrimination and a society who fears them?

It’s sad that there are so many discriminations in our society. It’s like many blocks in our veins and it’s making us get older. Let’s loosen up a bit and melt those blocks. There’s nothing to fear.

David Liljemark
When writing or drawing, do you have a favorite pen?

I use anything. Sometimes just my fingers, hands, celery sticks.

Flávia Helena Strong
What is the one advice you would give to an artist(of any field)?

That there’s nothing to fear. Know that what you are doing is fine. It will take you to a higher and higher dimension.

Charisse Landise
When will you put out a disco dance version of I Love You Earth?

Well, right now, we are loving the one Antony and I did together. So give us some time. I know, the dance version will be Wow!

Lisa Masiero
Is gun control or people control the solution to our increasingly violent society? As a first hand person of experience, your opinion and/or solutions would be of great value.

I would like to see a society in which we don’t need to use anything to hurt each other. We are all wishing for such a day to come soon. Aren’t we?

Ron Adams
If you could invent a new color, what would it look like?

All the colors we know, except they have a happy sheen.


Albert Murrian ‏@AlbertBMurrian
Sometimes I get twisted up inside. How can I keep my thoughts clean and mind pure?

Don’t get concerned so much that your mind is rolling up and down. Remember, you are human. It will be good if you can laugh about it, when you just noticed that your mind is getting twisted inside, as you say.

retrobanks ‏@retrobanks
Am I here?

Send your mom a big kiss, and you will know.

Pablo RoblesGastélum ‏@pabloroblesgast
What’s the best poem you’ve ever read?

I’m waiting!

Sqwizzey ‏@Sqwizzey
Yoko, how did you help Sean cope without a Dad, when John was sadly gone? Im having a hard time myself, a child without a Dad. Thank you

I know, it’s hard, isn’t it? But it’s good to know that your dad is not gone yet. He is standing right beside you, being proud of how you are doing.

poppnp ‏@poppnp
What is the aim in life? I’m wandering…

What you make of it.

Zach Bruce ‏@Zach_bruce
What’s your favourite thing to do when you have free time?

Free time is there for you to excercise your creativity.

Chris Maume ‏@cmaume
Hi Yoko – do you ever go back to Japan? And if so, do you enjoy going back?

I go back once every year for something. And I love it.

steven ‏@StvnRay
Happy to hear about Sky Landing, the permanent art installation in Chicago. Is it going to be a time consuming project for you?

I don’t like to consume anything and I don’t. This project is giving me mind growth. I think it is grand.

U Appenzeller ‏@Amy_8888
When John Lennon wrote “Imagine”, we believed in a peaceful world – but it has become the worst ever. How can we change this?

The battle at dawn is the severest or whatever. Yes. We are standing together watching the sunrise in the horizon.

~Expressed Poet~ ‏@LonelyLiliana
I’ve always been insecure & I feel like nobody could ever love me, do you think I’ll find my other half someday?

You are thinking you would never. First start to do things you know you love. Things will happen from there.

Emi Ly ‏@EmyAward23
Hi! What is your biggest dream? For you? And for the planet?

I dream the day we will all be healthy mind and body. Once we get there, we will know what what next.

    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

    Thanks,

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…
