Do you know the story of how John Lennon met Yoko Ono?
He went to a friend’s art gallery and saw an empty room with a tall ladder going up to the ceiling.
He climbed to the top of the ladder, and there was just a magnifying glass which, if held up to the ceiling, revealed a little tiny word “yes”.
He loved it, and asked about the artist. It was Yoko, and that’s how they met.
In the early 1990s I met this girl, and hit it off right away.
When I mentioned that I would love to find someone like Yoko, and really admired her work, her eyes went big and she said, “Wow! Really? I love Yoko! I’ve never met anyone else who does!”
It was definitely an endearing bonding moment between us.
We dated for a while, but lost touch. (My fault.)
This year on Facebook, she added me as a friend.
I emailed, saying, “Wow! Long time! How are you?” We catch up. She’s happily married and doing well.
She asks how I’m doing. How’s life? I filled her in, then added at the end, “P.S. Still looking for my Yoko.”
Her reply was priceless:
“If history serves, you don’t look for a Yoko. A Yoko simply appears when you least expect her. Just keep climbing ladders.”
