Two Virgins


Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the date of John Lennon's death, which I didn't want to pass unacknowledged, albeit late, because I was out-of-town and sans computer.

Coincidentally, the Sun set earlier than at any other time of the year in the northern hemisphere yesterday. The shortest day of the year, the winter solstice, is yet to come on December 21.

But the sun will set later every day now. I think Lennon might have liked that connection.

Photos are from the infamous "Two Virgins" front and back cover. You probably don't want to click on the one to the left for a larger version (which answers the question about whether Lennon was circumcised) if you're offended by full frontal male nudity.

"It was midnight when we started 'Two Virgins,' it was dawn when we finished, and then we made love at dawn. It was very beautiful." - John Lennon
