As I was driving to my mom’s house today, I heard “A Day in the Life” on my iPod and marveled at how perfectly constructed it is. I listened to it twice, turning it up loud so Atticus could be sure to hear it. Mike and I have been working to make him a Beatles fan already, because we have all the right priorities. (Mike has also been reading Winnie-the-Pooh to him in utero. I have had lots of people ask if we’ve been reading to him already. Yes, yes we have.)
With the buzz in the news about John Lennon’s birthday, I thought I would post a link to something I wrote about the Beatles last year. Happy birthday, Mr. Lennon. Thanks for all the beautiful songs.
