Some people had tears rolling down their eyes....even now, almost 30 years later. From some of my previous posts you may know that this Manhattan Feng Shui Consultant LOVES Central Park; Back to Nature--Central Park in New York City! by Feng Shui Long Island
and although I've been to Strawberry Fields before I don't spend much time there. It is still very sad for me too, even now.
But my friend Fernando Rosado ASP, president IAHSP PBC 561-906-0050 or 561-840-8950 : Fernando's Home Staging Blog requested some photos (how did he know I had just visited there?). Feng Shui Consultant Laura Cerrano and I went to Central Park in New York City less then two weeks ago for a last beautiful summer walk through the Park. It was a beautiful weekday and Central Park, as usual was crowded. We did NOT know, until later on, that Central Park was celebrating it's 150th Birthday!
This post, though, is just about a very special part of the Park. It is about Strawberry Fields and John Lennon who came to New York City and fell in love. He had to fight to stay here and many felt he was a threat because he protested the war with his "Love Ins" with Yoko Ono. He persisted and he stayed though he never distanced himself from the people that were his fans. He spent a lot of time in Central Park, lived in The Dakota and was happy to stay home and raise his son.
I often try to IMAGINE what beautiful music he would still be creating and singing today. On this very special day in Strawberry Field, there was a man taking care of the IMAGINE mosaic. Of course you re not allowed to step on it and if people got too close, he would let them know. He was so protective of it and when the rose petals moved, he would carefully put them back. It was a beautiful day in Central Park New York to just IMAGINE:
Difficult to see, this names all the Countries all over the world "Imagine All the People Living Life in Peace" John Lennon
I have to believe this guitar belonged to the man who was protecting Strawberry Fields.
Not a petal out of line.....
The Dakota Building on Central Park West, John Lennons' home.
You also might remember it from the movie "Rosemanys' Baby."
