That Cartoon From Facebook, “Genius”
Yes, this is the son of John and Cynthia Powell Lennon. The Jude of “Hey Jude,” Julian is now 48. He’s engaged to Lucy Bayliss, a model. He’s seriously embarked on another career, photography, although he still records sporadically. His most recent album is Everything Changes.
Since his father’s death, Julian has also become a collector of Beatle memorabilia. Sorta like reconstructing pieces of his dad–but really, it is bits of John’s career in music. Julian’s collection consists of clothing, gold records, guitars, jewelry, and other items.
The poster doesn’t suggest that a serial killer is a genius. However, think about guys like The Bird Man of Alcatraz, who basically trashed his life with criminal activity, including murder. But Robert Stroud had an IQ of 134. And in Leavenworth Penitentiary, he became a self-taught ornithologist who contributed much to avian pathology.
We are all capable of great things, and of being great ourselves in our little lives.
