The tribute to John Lennon is the backbone of this site. It sprang up naturally from numbers of strange coincidences that made me feel a deep affinity with John Lennon, some kind of predestinate "collaboration" with His ideas and feelings and allowed me to sign a photo-reportage, to direct a TV video for the Italian Public Television (RAI); to have a successful exhibition at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome (GNAM) and to decide to write a biographical novel< which will be out within the year.
I happened to interview Ringo Starr in a TV studio in Rome and Paul MacCartney in Venice at a press conference...then I was almost swallowed up by New York the same day John was murdered... This is it!
The Lennon basic idea was: don't delegate your own power to someone else; don't expect somebody else doing something you should do or feel like doing yourself... don't delay.
Naturally when we decide to do something we will soon find a resistence. It can be outside or inside (laziness, fear or lack of energy). We have to accept that and transcend it or we will not grow.
The ideas are more powerful than governments and fixed rules... they have a body and live their own life. The Dreamsite itself is first of all an idea, the aspiration to create a very special space for dreamers to be linked together in small and big projects and in celebration of the inner urge to express oneself.
The Web is a great manifestation of the human aspiration to widen its horizons and vision. John Lennon would have adored playing and working with it. It's up to us now to do it.
