Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


Yoko Ono: Amaze - 1971

by Yoko Ono

Yoko Ono is asked to pose in her maze titled AMAZE. Dutifully she walks into the centre of it and tries to return by using the same route. Suddenly she gets lost. The group of reporters standing outside tries to guide her back: "Go to the left, go there." "Yes, this resembles life", she laughs as she manages to return. "In life you think you can do whatever you please, because the obstacles are invisible. Eventually you always stumble into something and realise that the direction was forbidden or not possible...""I also have moments when I feel insecure or broken. As a woman I don't feel insecure, just as a human being in general. I feel strong as a woman, because women have always suffered from oppression and abuse. And when someone tries to do something like that to you, don't you become stronger than you were a moment ago?"Yoko Ono interview to Anna magazine, Helsinki, May 1999
