The Beatles classic song that people thought was written about drugs, in fact, was inspired by a little girl.
Lucy Vodeen, age 46, of Surrey England passed away last week from lupus.
The true story of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds is this:
Julian Lennon, 4 years old, came home from school one day with a drawing that he had done. He presented to his father, John Lennon (who was working on a album called Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Band Club). He told his dad it was Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
That inspired John to write the song we all know. Julian (who is living in France now) lost contact with his friend Lucy when his parents were divorced but they reconnected years later.
Julian would send her flowers for her garden, to put a smile on her face, during her fight with lupus.
So, the song was inspired by a child, who was inspired by a child, who inspired a father, who inspired the world.
Life is a simple thread that connects us all.
