What was it like to work with Ornette Coleman? What do you remember about him?

He was a good friend. We worked well together, and we knew and enjoyed it.

Jonathan Kennedy
What have you been working on recently?

Doing my best every day.

Magali Tosello
Dear Yoko, Each of your artworks offers both a positive and philosophic message allowing to see the world in a more beautiful way. So, do you think that the humanity is becoming aware that a change of spirit is necessary and urgent against the materialism and the wickedness? In what ways this awareness for the peace and the improvement of the world could be speeded up ? I thank you for your attention.

Speeding up, is always the wrong thing to do. Give yourself a chance to go by the rhythm of your own heart..

Troy Blackford
Do you think people today judge people in the past too much by standards of today, or is this not a problem? I think temporal context is important, but many disagree.

Don’t try to agree with what people are saying. Listen to your mind and body.

Stephen Sigritz
Are there any plans to reissue your back catalogue? I’ve been trying to track down a copy of your first Plastic Ono Band album and it’s been tough!

Try checking eBay.

Flor de Mambar
Hi, Yoko! I’d like to know if your exhibition at the MoMA in N.Y. City is going to visit some European country. I’d love to look around it and feel your magical world! Greetings from Spain and thanks for reading.

I just did an exhibition in Bilbao. You don’t think that’s Spain?

Cheryl Phillips
How will visual art change in the future?

It will change as you change. But you don’t have to change at all, if you don’t want to. Go by your own rhythm.

Yvette Deschrynmakers
Dear Yoko, we do not know each other personally but we are both mother to a son. Every day, I try to be a good mother. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is not appreciated. What is your advice to mothers in raising their offspring in today’s world? Not an easy question, or is it…

You are a human being and a woman before you are a mother. Be what you can be. Your children will appreciate it, or not appreciate it, according to what they are. Don’t regret being you. That’s all you can be.

Sarah Best
Good morning Yoko! My question is how do you heal a heart and how do you heal many hearts?

Don’t try to heal many hearts. Heal your own heart. Maybe that is the only thing you can do. That alone is not easy.

Taylor Davis
Dear Yoko, I struggle with a lot of doubts about myself and my future. How can I become more confident in my ability to succeed?

Nobody is confident in their ability to suceed. Stop trying to be successful. Just be successful in being yourself.

Matthew Finlay
What is your ultimate goal in life?

To live well.


Mike Thomas ‏@mikethomas1959
With the re-release of the Lennon/Ono Solo Albums, do you have a favourite, and why?

Each song, each album has very interesting power. I enjoy getting those powers just by tuning into them. Hope you will too.

What could I do a newly peace activist to to help

We are all people who are into being entertained, day and night. Once it was just kings and queens who asked to have a life of being entertained. Stop being entertained. Feel love for cleaning up your life. You will feel better and be healthy as well. Start there.

LindaLand ‏@lindabruley
How does the artistic renaissance of the 60s & 70s compare to these technology driven decades?

Technology driven decades will only bring decades for robots. Remember we are human beings needing special health for our minds and bodies.

Jonas OK ‏@Jo3Kolpe
What is love for you?

Love is for what we need. Get what we need rather than what we think would give us some fun.

ShihTzuTylenol ‏@ShihTzuTylenol
I’m designing a #chess set w/pieces made of Jello. What flavors (colors) would you suggest I try & why?

Try what you wish to try.

Adnaan Jiwa ‏@adnaanjiwa
What gets stranger and stranger every time you think about it?

Life.

David N ‏@_David_N_
How do we find peace in a world where powerful seem intent on its destruction & religious/political leaders preach hate

You are the destructive power choosing what you think you want. Choose what you need and not what you think you need.

Emily ‏@KATYACHACHKI
Who creates limits?

You.

Emily ‏@KATYACHACHKI
This isn’t a question, but I’d like to thank you for being a constant source of inspiration, peace and happiness. I love you. ❤️

I love you too, for trying.

Emily Julia ‏@emilyjuliaxx
Hi Yoko! I am smiling and sending you positivity. Smile Yoko!! :) I love you!

I AM smiling.

  4. joseph martin says:

    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.

    • Yoko Ono says:

      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

    HI Yoko,

    I am doing a write up on Cut Piece. I was wondering what is a message or representation you were trying to say with this piece?

    Thanks,

    Kallie

  12. Sonia says:

    Thank you for the answers that you shared to me especially about questions related when you were expecting a baby with John.. 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…
