I used to go to NYC with my older brother to try to meet John Lennon. I never had the guts to go myself. The day I did drive in NYC by myself was the day after he was assassinated!!! I went with my friend to pay my respects. I was heartbroken!

I WILL ALWAYS REGRET NOT GOING TO NYC AND MEETING JOHN LENNON. HE LIVED ONLY 25 MINUTES FROM MY HOME! BUT I NEVER HAD THE GUTS! THE DAKOTA SEEMED SO FAR AWAY, BUT IN REALITY, IT WAS ONLY 25 FREAKING MINUTES FROM MY HOME IN NJ!!! I COULD HAVE MET MY HERO! BUT IT SEEMED TO FAR AWAY!!

This is a lesson to me today. How many things seem so unattainable to me. How many things seems "SO FAR AWAY" like the Dakota did. Life is short. As Bob Dylan wrote: What looks large from a distance up close is never that big.

I am finishing reading Larry Kane's book about John tonight. I am 45 years old. I can honestly say I feel so sad and lonely. I miss John Lennon so much that I am on the brink of tears!!!

I love John, and I miss him.
