All You Need is Love

All You Need is Love
Mamaroneck, NY

Note: The title comes from a discarded coffee cup whose powerful message takes the title of John Lennon’s hit song, All You Need is Love. It was performed on live television when the BBC linked five continents together for the first time in 1967 using various satellites for the One World broadcast. The Beatles performed this epic song at the conclusion of the broadcast that reached 350 million households in what is described as “the greatest single moment in the history of popular music.”[1]

The lyrics are timeless and universally inspirational – “There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done… No one… that can’t be saved… You can learn how to be you… All you need is love.” Dreams and aspirations are not impossible and individuality is something to be treasured. And yes, love is all we need based on the words of 12th Century CE Sufi Poet Farid ud Din Attar – “On [l]ove [we] all depend.”

This abstract uses vibrant reds and oranges to symbolize the power of love, discarded garbage including a cup that makes up the title, an unused soggy Valentine’s Day heart that symbolizes love itself, a circle to depict the continuous eternal nature of love and the fact we are one world and one human race and a broken plastic casing that resembles a staircase to transcend violence, hate and all the evils that remain all too common.

Finally, the abstract includes a signature happy face since love is the origin of the universes and life, the sole necessity of our sustenance, the ultimate driving force of good, and the only example of unbroken, lasting perfection in an imperfect, transient and broken world.

Thanks for your great thoughts! I became a Londoner as a student in 1967 when the Beatles' song was current and new. Your picture and explanations bring back to me the flavour of that time, optimism, freshness and endless possibilities!

Excuse me, William, I don't want to abuse this platform.
But when I saw the news in the morning that your president was arming-now also for the war in space, I have had considerable doubts about the ability of the US population to judge...
3 months ago.
William Sutherland has replied to ©UdoSm
I disagree with your assessment UdoSm. I think most people oppose space warfare since it would plunge the world into a new dark ages and it would take between 500 and 1000 years for the debris to clear to re-establish satellite connections and an Internet as we know it. At the same time, President Trump isn't the first to take this approach. China, which has already demonstrated its ability to destroy satellites in orbit and Russia have been pursuing this theater for more than a decade. Does it mean one should also have doubts about the ability of the people of China and Russia to judge? No and the same hold true for Americans and the peoples of every country. Politics do not hinder a peoples' ability to judge.
