Imagine Peace Tower

Keeping the Peace ball rolling–I love Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower artwork in Iceland. On Viðey Island, near Reykjavík, an old geothermal/electrical plant has an installation that shoots a huge beam of light skyward from October 9 (the birthday of John Lennon) until December 8 (the anniversary of his death) each year. From dusk to midnight, the white cylinder with “Imagine Peace” inscribed in 24 languages, blazes toward the universe with geothermally-powered high beams. It is also lit for the Winter Solstice each year,  New Year’s Eve, and for the first week of Spring. Go to Yoko’s website to learn more about this and all her vast array of work.

Happy Equinox…Imagine Peace
