Yoko Ono’s enchanting philosophy and uplifting positivity are irresistible. She breaks down the boundaries between art and life. No other artist cares about us so much. Yoko shows us the truth – with sincerity, grace and humor. She enlightens us to our own superpowers.
We will visit Yoko’s inner and outer worlds. Your mind will slow down. You will see the wind and hear the silence. Her meanings and intent will come to light. You will view negative space in a positive way, and will be touched by her wit and wisdom, her genius and whimsy. Yoko’s work is unfinished – to be completed in your mind.
Her art is on the ceiling, on the floor and in the sky. You can step on it, burn it, mend it, cut a hole and let the evening light go through. It is invisible – a wind, a whisper, a scream. It is imagining one thousand suns rising, a billion universes, stealing moonlight on the water, a goldfish swimming across the sky… Her music and films are an extension of her art.
There are chapters about her films, her works of art, and each of her albums.
Yoko’s eternal partnership with John Lennon is also explored. Their love story, and their work towards world peace includes all of us.
Her incredible body of work expresses all the joys and suffering of an extraordinary lifetime.
My Yoko Ono art collection:
Dreams, skies, smiles, love and wishes.
I breathe and dance every day.
I listen to the snow, see the wind, count the clouds
and imagine peace.
What do you think my collection is worth?
I think it’s priceless!
– Madeline Bocaro
“Very beautiful. You capture her spirit and vision. You tell her story so well and it’s very important that someone does. Yoko spent so much of her life being misunderstood and misrepresented. She is such a special person and artist. The world needs the record you are creating. I am amazed not only by how much you know about Yoko, but also how well you write about it. Thank you for what you are doing. It’s wonderful to see Yoko and her art celebrated.”
– Dan Richter, friend & assistant to John & Yoko
“A treasure trove of Yoko info! Thank you for including Yoko’s own words. I am breathless reading them. I love her positivity and cosmic consciousness. I am enlightened!”
– Hilly Michaels
“I am mesmerized by the spirit of Yoko rising from the pages – so intimate, it feels as if I am in her presence. I feel as if Yoko is talking to me personally. Your writing reaches the depths of Yoko’s soul.”
– Robert Loney
“This is a doctoral dissertation on Yoko. You beautifully explain the myriad of facets that she shows the world… if our hearts and minds are receptive. I love your many insights. This speaks to me: “Yoko is like a polished gemstone – radiating after years of abrasion.”
– Corinne Phillipedes
“It’s like reading ‘Grapefruit’ over a long period.”
– Ric Warren
“You make your idol come alive. You write so skillfully and emotionally.”
– Cherry Vanilla
“You have created a paradise for those of us needing Yoko’s wisdom in our own lives. Although she seems childlike, I believe she’s a complex, almost other-worldly angel. The Afterword should be cherished by the world!”
– Dorothy Sherman
“An enthralling work. I’m blown away by the depth and breadth of your knowledge, and your elegant presentation. I love Yoko even more!”
– Mike Mitchell
“Great insights into this amazing creator. It’s informative and humorous. I am learning much more about Yoko.”
– Jaeme Grosvenor
“Madeline Bocaro’s book may be the last word on Yoko Ono. Detailed, driven, and equally passionate about the art and life of Yoko. Of course, it goes into the John and Yoko world, but more importantly, it focuses on Ono’s art and music, and tons of information on her Fluxus years, as well as Yoko’s roots in Japanese Avant-Garde art. Yoko Ono herself is fascinating, but Bocaro’s approach to this artist’s work is a must-read.”
– Tosh Berman, author of TOSH: Growing Up in Wallace Berman’s World.
