Title:Imagine Again

Size: 12″X36″

Price: $1,000.00

Story: Imagine, by John Lennon is an iconic song for me. Our world hasn’t learned how to make peace.

Our best leaders continue to try and bomb people into submission in the hope that we can own the whole pie. The idea of sharing is lost every time. There are lots of fancy words used. I am aware that he wasn’t perfect. But in his song “Imagine” ………….. he got it.   That’s what I like about John Lennon.

Here is the original, official version of the song on YouTube:
