BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

What 35 long years!!!!

35 years have passed since the murder of John Lennon. This and all the gender-based violence cases we hear everyday on the news have reminded me of this beautiful song by John Lennon.

Pay attention to the exclamative sentence used for the heading of the post. Here's another example: How Bizarre!

  8. That's a pity!

    My mother loves this British musician, every year on 8th December she says me: "The night of 8 December in 1980, a crazy man called Mark Chapman shot John Lennon and he died."

    My favourite song of Jonh Lennon is Imagine, because this song makes me feel when I was at Primary school singing this song at the day of peace.

    Around 10:50 pm on 8th December 1980, Lennon and Ono returned to their New York apartment in the Dakota, Mark David Chapman was here and he shot Lennon in the back four times at the entrance to the building. Lennon was taken to the emergency room of nearby Roosevelt Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival at 11:00 pm.

  14. John Lennon was an English musician who became very famous as one of the members of the Beatles. He died on 8th December, 1980, when David Chapman shot him five times in the archway of the building where he lived, the Dakota building, in New York City.
    That morning was very frantic for both John and her wife, Yoko Ono. It's because that morning they had attended journalists, they had been to the barber's and Anne Leibovitz did a photo shoot for him.
    John and Ono were strolling to The Hit Factory. In the Dakota's archway, Chapman first saw Lennon and he showed him a copy of 'Double Fantasy' on which he wrote: John Lennon, 1980.
    At 22.45h, Lennon and his wife arrived at the Dakota building by limousine.Chapman was waiting. Suddenly, he shot Lennon, killing him.

    This ex-Beatle was reported dead at The Roosevelt hospital. He was forty years old. Ono didn't want to organize him a funeral.

    I don't like John Lennon's songs very much, but the song I like the most is IMAGINE by John Lennon, obviously.

    to sing alone and he wrote very famous songs . One of my favorite song is "Imagine", because he talks about peace and love , it is a very beautiful song . On the other hand he didn´t just sing or write music , he was politically engaged , he fought for peace and against war. I really like him
    he is a symbol.

Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to raise his infant son Sean, but emerged with Ono in 1980 with the new album Double Fantasy. He was murdered three weeks after its release.

    His father was often away from home but sent regular pay cheques to his house, in Liverpool, where Lennon lived with his mother, the cheques stopped when he went absent without leave in February 1944.

    At age 15, Lennon formed his first group called the Quarrymen, the group was established by him in September 1956. By the summer of 1957, the Quarrymen played a "spirited set of songs" made up of half skiffle and half rock and roll. Lennon first met Paul McCartney at the Quarrymen's second performance
