Happy 7 Years, Yoko!
Just wanted to say a quick happy 7 years to my bonsai babe. This is Yoko Ono, if I have never told you. She’s almost a decade old, and her roots are growing talll. She’s currently recovering from a lil bit of a cold, right now. But she’s doing great, and I expect great things from her. Her favorite song is “I’m Like A Bird” by Nelly Furtado.
🌳 Anywho, Yoko is always there for me and still loves me when her physical health suffers due to my mental health.
So thanks for always being there for me bby ❤️
Please let this photo of Yoko symbolism life, and how this is it, it is now, and you exist and are so beautiful.
Toast drops tomorrow and I’m hella sentimental today.
So I’d like to share one thing I want readers to take away from the book...
🥂 fuck it. Do the thing. You are capable of doing the thing. You want to do the thing, so do the thing. Also try therapy. Keep trying therapists until you find one that works for you. I found one good one out of like 12. So they do exist. & it’s worth it, and life changing.
This book would not be happening if I wouldn’t have found a good therapist. 🤍☁️
Check this link for Toast...
& get yourself one of those paperback copies I’ve been telling everyone about. It’s live and ready for purchase tonight @ midnight! Turn on the notifs on the countdown on my IG story (@LoustellaPerry), to be notified on the second.
& thank you for everything, always.
I don’t know who wants the book and who doesn’t, but I do know I wrote it for someone like me in a time when I needed it. So I hope you find this and need it and use it and get yourself in therapy and write your book ok. 🤍
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIAN LENNON
Question: Have you come across Julian Lennon and what do you think his future will be?
George: I haven't seen him over the last two years, but before that I spent a lot of time with him. I try to give him a bit of help and direction. He went through a couple of years of going to clubs and being sucked into situations he should have avoided. I think now, having done that, he's a much wiser person. I've seen him on TV doing interviews and singing his songs. I think he's got a great future as a musician and as a songwriter. And as a human, he's real charming. He's got the smartness of John, but he's got a softer edge. He's a sweetheart

"I feel I have to apologize for saying it more than once, but my son is amazing. We have such an understanding. It's no bullshit and I'm not being sugary or sentimental: he's just turned out above and beyond my wildest dreams" -Cynthia Lennon
"[Julian]'s more like his mother. He's a much gentler, softer person" -George Harrison
"I looked down at him for the first time. He was tiny, his small face scrunched up and bright red. I thought he was absolutely perfect" -Cynthia Lennon

1969: The Beatles with Billy Preston
Imma need to ask the Beatles fandom why some of you actually hate yoko. I actually saw someone’s blog say that they’re anti-yoko because they don’t like abusers, while also being a pro-John blog. Didnt...John Lennon himself admit to having an abusive past and having general abusive habits? What, does him being open about it make it okay? Don’t get me wrong, it’s good he was honest about it and I love John myself. But this fandom has a bad habit of being overly critical of beatle women for doing the same damn thing the beatles themselves was doing, if not worse.
