John often said there are two types of people “why me?” and “why not?”

John is seated, deep in thought, contemplating the mysteries of life. Searching for an answer to the philosophical questions his inner self is asking him. He draws himself with his hair standing on end, the look of deep meditation on his face as he questions his existence

Why has destiny placed him in the position to be the one who draws the world closer to a dream of peace? Why must he act as an oracle to the fate of mankind, when he perhaps would just like to enjoy a simple life?

(John drew one of the Lennons’ three cats, resting on the arm of his chair).
