HEATHER RANKIN CELEBRATES HOLIDAY SEASON WITH ‘IMAGINE’
“It was a conscious decision,” Rankin insisted, on the phone from Halifax.
Lennon’s famous song, released in 1971, expresses hope for a world with “no religion” filled with “people living for today.” He wrote: “Imagine there’s no heaven / It’s easy if you try / No hell below us / Above us only sky.”
Rankin explained: “I was raised in the Catholic church but I consider myself to be an open and accepting person and I’m still learning. The point of celebrating the season has evolved. The reason has evolved.”
