Yesterday would have been John Lennon's 70th. He and Yoko really were honorary New Yorkers. Today we went to "Strawberry Fields", a section of Central Park across the street from the Dakota Building where he lived and was murdered, to pay homage. Funnily, it is also where we meet our running buddies every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 6 am, rain hail or shine but seemed totally different today. It has been glorious weather all weekend: around 20C and not a cloud in the sky.
