Last weekend we saw in the news that the John Lennon “Imagine Peace Tower” was being lit up in Reykjavik. Our friend’s Dad who was visiting was CONVINCED from a distance that it was the northern lights, but…hey….it’s easily confused.
We went on a 5 minute boat ride to the island of Viðey (compliments of Yoko Ono herself) and walked in the utter darkness until we reached the light. When our “tour guide” told us to all hold hands and send up our wishes for peace, I saw this picture in my head and begged Colby to climb the hill behind us and capture it. Well done, Colby, well done.
Fully participating in the festivities, Darcy wrote a wish and hung it on the wish tree right next to everyone’s wishes for global peace: “I wish for a baby bottle so I can feed my baby.” (We had a family over for dinner and their 2 year old threw Darcy’s toy baby bottle off our 4th floor patio). The whole boat ride home they played “Give Peace a Chance.” It was a fun evening that would have only been improved by meeting Yoko Ono in person. Maybe next year.
