Imagine Carl, just imagine

I took a call from my Best Man in 1976, Carl Olsen, on the evening of my 68th birthday.
It’s a long standing tradition.
The fact Carl now lives next to the beach in New South Wales, Australia simply adds to the fun .

It was midnight there, but this time he rang from a hospital bed.
His lovely wife Helen was with him.
His heart.

None of us will live forever, but now is never a good time to say goodbye.
Thankfully, 4 hours later he was discharged.
I attach the link to what I believe is Lennon’s best song, “Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try 

No hell below us, above us, only skies

Imagine all the people living for today, yah hey yeah

Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for, noAnd no religion, too, oh

Imagine all the people living life in peace, yoo ooo

You, you may say I’m a dreamerBut I’m not the only oneI hope some day you’ll join us

And the world will be as oneImagine no possessions, I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

It may be said we are dreamers, but we’re not the only ones
One day they’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
