Yoko Ono goes Reykjavik


On what would have been John Lennon’s 67th birthday on Oct. 9 ’07, Yoko Ono will be unveiling the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland as a birthday present to the late musician.

Is it a big tower? What does it look like?

It’s really not a tower per se according to reports but rather a beam of light that shoots 55 feet in the air which will be surrounded by capsules that contain “wishes” which Yoko has collected over the years (about 495,000 so far). 

People may also send in wishes via the Imagine website or by regular snail mail.

Eternal light?

The beam of light will not be on all the time, but will be visible from Oct. 9 to Dec. 8 for the following reason according to Ono: 

So it has the feeling of the shortness of life, but the light is eternal


In non-related news, much like “eternal light” that is only on for 2 months, and towers that sky a whopping 55 feet in the air, Noriko Shimomura, a 42 year old teacher, was arrested for having sex with one of her ex-students at a hotel in Karatsu, Saga Prefecture.
