John and Yoko: Double Fantasy

I am sat on a little purple stool at the John and Yoko ‘Double Fantasy’ Exhibition. I am not quite crying. I’ve been round the exhibition for the last half hour or so and I think it’s very beautiful. I think so. Though it was quite crowded. I would see it better on a quieter […]
