Paul McCartney Believes Linda's Spirit Lives On!

By InfoBeat

NEW YORK (AP) - Paul McCartney, who lost his wife Linda to breast cancer in 1998, says he's comforted by thoughts that her spirit lives on. "After Linda died, I think all of us in the family would hear noises or see things and think 'That's Linda; that's mom...' And I think in some ways, it's very comforting to think she's still here," McCartney told ABC's "Good Morning America" Monday.

McCartney said he has been compelled to write poetry since her death, including a poem called "Her Spirit," in which Linda's spirit visits him in the woods, in the form of a white squirrel. "You don't know if it's true. But it's a great thought. And it's an uplifting thought. So I allow myself to go there," McCartney said.

McCartney recently published "Blackbird Singing," an anthology of 48 poems and song lyrics that spans early memories of Liverpool to the 1980 murder of Beatle John Lennon to the loss of his wife. The ABC interview is the first of a four-part discussion in which McCartney discusses his marriage, children and his relationship with Lennon.
