Inspiration Station: John Lennon Peace Wall

It is close to a year since T and I went on our European adventure (sad but true) and these photos have been sitting on my computer, just waiting to be shared with you.

The John Lennon Peace Wall is in Prague and is both a memorial for the famous singer/songwriter/activist but also a symbol of free speech. In 1980 when John Lennon was murdered, a picture of him was painted upon the wall as well as graffiti against the Czech regime, expressing their desire for a freedom that was not available to them.

While Beatles lyrics, pictures of Lennon and proclamations of people’s love for him can still be seen on the Peace Wall, it has become a place where people scrawl their hopes, dreams and feelings. You could spend hours reading all the notes. Here is a selection of my favourites.

This one put a confused smile on my face...
