Well, Ms. Ono’s at it again: plugging her late husband’s traveling art exhibit, Imagine: The Artwork of John Lennon.
If you’d have told me when I was a wanna-be journalist kid, that I’d get one crack at interviewing Yoko Ono, much less two, I’d have asked what you were smoking.
My husband thinks this is an exciting claim-to-fame.
Here’s what I think is exciting: I chatted with Yoko Monday afternoon from a Walgreens parking lot in Sarasota. After asking the usual battery of art/Lennon questions, I asked her for advice on motherhood.
To hell with What To Expect When You’re Expecting. I’ve got John Lennon’s widow.
One day I’ll tell my kid this and depending on how cool he is, he’ll respond one of two ways: “Who’s Yoko Ono?” Or, “That’s AWESOME.”
To read my short Q&A with the now 78-year-old Ono, check out The Observer.
