Two days ago, my sister went to heaven and left a trail of snow and wind. A blizzard of sparkling diamonds for us to remember her. From now on, whenever I witness a blizzard, I will look up and say, “Hi, Lucille. Glad you decided to visit.”
Unlike her, I was nicknamed by my aunts and uncles. Lucille chose her own. Lucy was it.
Looking up at the sky I think of how she died and the blizzard that started immediately afterward. And the Beatles song, Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds, filled my brain. So, I’d like to guide you to a Beatles Lucy video link on Youtube I found appealing.
The song was written by John Lennon after his young son brought him a drawing he had just completed. When John asked what it was, his son said, “It’s Lucy in the sky with diamonds.” John thougth that would be a great title for a song. So he wrote Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.
I also found a Led Zeplen’s song, Stairway to Heaven, on this Youtube link, which I find appropriate for my sister as well. One of her many talents was her mastery of the piano, the guitar, the ukulele, and the flute. She was part of a band and loved to sing.
Listen to the lyrics at these links and remember Lucy, my sister, up there, listening and watching with you. Because, you know… she’s still here in another dimension where our family and friends who also left us in a stream of weather patterns we either were, or were not aware of when they died.
Let me know what you think. Thanks.
