Heroes II

As promised, my next hero banned on paper in black and white. As I mention, quite frequently, on this blog, I’m a very big Beatles fan and my biggest hero ever must and will be Mr. John Winston Lennon. I was close to an obsession I guess, when I was around 13, 14 years old and he was a very important figure to me during my adolesence. And my fascination and engagement with all things Lennon never really stopped. Now, when I think about him, he feels more like a family member or a close friend which I don’t get to see anymore but have so many fond memories about. It’s a strange thing, how you kind of get to know a person, without ever actually meeting him. But of course, in the end, you can’t really get close to your hero, how could you. You get close to a version you fabricate in your head. A version that let’s you get closer to yourself maybe. And that may be a good thing, I guess.
