November 7, 1966
“When I made the Yes painting in 1966 (you had to walk up a ladder with a magnifying glass, to find the word “Yes”). I was in a totally difficult situation in my life and I thought, what I need is a Yes, and so I put the word on the ceiling. I never thought it was about to change my whole life by 180 degrees.
It was that Yes painting that brought John into the gallery. He saw it and said great. Because the thing is that, unbeknown to everyone, John was going through some hard times too and feeling alone. I was feeling totally alone too.” – Yoko Ono
