Take a sad song and make it better

 

Mallorca

 

Cynthia Lennon (musician John Lennon’s first wife) died earlier this year on the island of Mallorca (Majorca, Spain). Recently one of my sisters visited briefly this island and sent me a postcard from there.

In reading up on Cynthia Lennon I learned that around the time of Cynthia and John Lennon’s divorce in the late 1960s Paul McCartney visited Cynthia and her son, Julian where they were living in England. Cynthia is said to have been surprised by Paul McCartney’s visit. McCartney, it is believed, wrote the song “Hey Jude” as a source of comfort for Julian at that time.
