    I opened up the San Francisco Chronicle today and found a whole page ad that started with:
    My Friends
    "So this is Christmas and what have you done?"

    I have to admit, once upon a time I disliked her for squealing through John Lennon's songs. My senior project for Electrical Engineering was going to be a "Yoko Filter" till my teacher rejected it.
    But I have to admit, she has been keeping John's soul alive and kicking these days and I truly admire her for it.
    I am not sure how many papers it got in, but if you are a John Lennon fan you might want to look for it.

    No links but here it is minus the drawing. I tried to mimic her line breaks etc.
    Sunday December 28, page a18 in the SF Chronicle

    MY FRIENDS
    "So this is Christmas and what have you done?"
    As another tumultuous year is about to pass,
    I propose that we come together in our thoughts
    and end the year with clear vision.
    Let's visualize
    all the people living life in peace
    10 seconds. One hour. All day
    Anywhere and anytime of the day.

    Let's carry the clearest vision of a peaceful world
    And do it with a spiriity of fun and joy.
    Not with anger, not with fear.
    For negative thinking is a luxury we can't afford.
    Let's sing, dance and hug each other
    To bring in the New Year, and with it, the new world.
    Let's reprt to the Universe how glad we are
    That our planet is part of a beautiful constellation.

    For the opposite of love is fear, not hate
    The opposite of vwisdom is confusion, not stupidity.
    The shortest distance between two points
    is our desire and our unwavering belief.
    So listen to your heartbeat and remember
    "War is Over If you want it"

    With love, yoko ono dec.'03
