Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

COMPASSION

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.
— Albert Schweitzer

Yoko Ono has long been a controversial, iconic figure. The widow of John Lennon is known for her avant-garde art and music, for her philanthropy and for her activism, and today is regarded as a multi-media innovator. At 80, she remains an adventurous and committed conceptual artist and musician, respected and celebrated internationally.

In a rare interview, she speaks with Eleanor Wachtel about her traditional, privileged upbringing in Japan, harshly interrupted by World War II; the experiences of that time that formed her world view; and the spirit of creative experimentation that informs her work in all its variety. The program features some of Ono’s latest musical collaborations, as well a critical appreciation of her work by Alexandra Munroe, Asian art curator at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Tune in to Wachtel on the Arts on Ideas, Tuesday at 9 p.m., 9:30 in Newfoundland. 








"The Ballad of John and Yoko" is a song released by The Beatles as a single in May 1969. Primarily written by John Lennon, the song was attributed, as was the custom, to the Lennon/McCartney songwriting team. 
It chronicled the events surrounding Lennon's marriage to Yoko Ono and their subsequent activities together, including their famous first Bed-In in the Amsterdam Hilton, and demonstration of bagism. It was released while the couple were in the middle of their second Bed-In in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
