Yoko Ono (39)

Yoko writes:

When I was a very young and a serious poet, I admired a drawing by Picasso, which was of a very, very skinny woman folding her body in a beautiful way as if to express her resignation to life. I thought I would like to be like her one day. I am not like that yet. But I don't mind that I will be if and when I do. What I want to say is that I am very happy with the changes my body had gone through up to now. And so I will be, as my body progressed into an age when I would look totally spiritual. Change is beautiful. Each year, I am thankful that I am making the change. Each year, I am looking more like the 100 year old trees I see in the park - quietly powerful - and loving life.
