Peace Tower Lighting
Viðay Island, Reykjavík, Iceland
On November 9th, I ventured to Viðay Island in Reykjavík, Iceland, towitness the lighting of Yoko Ono´s Peace Tower for John Lennon’sbirthday. Ono provided free ferry rides for those who wanted to make the trip. An Icelandic choir sang traditional songs, as well as a version of a song by Bjðrk, and finished their set with Lennon´s Imagine. A full moon hung above all of us, and each beam of light from the tower was lit, one by one. Ono gave a short speech, followed by a poem, and hot chocolate was served in a nearby hall. As I walked with the crowd back to the ferry after the event, the most spectacular display of Aurora Borialis ignited the sky, following with “oohs” and “aaahs” from below.
