A Photo-Series: The Busily Diligent Texters

A Photo-Series: The Busily Diligent Texters

Photography by: Joseph O. Holmes, NYC

In the photo-series Texters, street photographer Joseph Holmes captures amazing, wondrous images of texters in NYC, encouraging you to have a little peek. Have you ever texted on the street, in the park, at the beach or in a coffee shop? This collection of photographs shows people who look mesmerized as they pull out their phones and text, tweet and connect to something other than the world all around them. The pictures show a number of individuals who seem to be shockingly focused on whatever they’re texting: a young woman texting while walking in the rain, a businessman in a park and a women looking frozen in time as she gazes into her phone.

John Lennon: Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

John Lennon: Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

To my friends: I’d like to share this wisdom with you.
It is from a Xmas card I received this year!

Watch your thoughts for they become words.
Choose your words for they become actions.
Understand your actions for they become habits.
Study your habits for they become your character
Develop your character for it will become your destiny.

Wishing you a joyful new year,
big kiss!

In 1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, with the Harlem Community Choir, recorded their message against war, a part of their major multimedia campaign for peace, as a peace anthem, a song that has also become a Christmas standard: Happy Xmas (War Is Over).  According to the John Lennon Museum, Lennon wrote the song as an attempt to get people to see war at a grassroots level and for them to take responsibility for the world around them.

So this is now the beginning of the Christmas season.  And what have you done?  The opening lines of the song, sung so nonchalantly by Lennon, serve as a call-to-action for us all.  The holidays become critical moments in the year for personal assessments, to review our choices.  And to make things better.  If you want it.
