Listening to the radio on my way home this evening they mentioned today being the anniversary of John Lennon's death. It gave me the idea of this...an unfinished drawing of an unfinished life...

A small (and quickly done) tribute to a great man.:)

Nice idea and rendition Eddie! I've always wondered about the price Lennon paid for his fame -- If he is able to reflect on it today, was it worth it? For a while after he was killed I ran around thinking if someone came to you before you were born and said you have two choices:

1. Be brilliantly creative, propel yourself from nothing onto the world stage, have an impact on a generation, but die at 40, or

2. Live to be 105 on an isolated ranch in Montana, known and loved by a small handful

which would would you take?
