Lucy Is Really In The Sky With Diamonds Now


Lucy O’Donnel Vodden died of lupus yesterday. She was forty-six. In this day and age lupus (it is an inflamation of various body parts that occurs intermittently and kills off the immune system, Huffington post call it: “a chronic disease where the immune system attacks the body’s own tissue”) is rarely fatal which is sort of odd but Lucy’s life must have been altogether odd. Julian, John Lennon’s son, drew a painting of Lucy O’Donnell when they were both three year old children, and it was the inspiration behind “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”. “I remember Julian and I both doing pictures on a double-sided easel, throwing paint at each other, much to the horror of the classroom attendant” Lucy would say.
 
 

Mrs. Vodden married thirteen years ago and spent the last five years of her life hospitalized with Lupus.
 

 
It’s a sad, strange story : fame finds us and an easily forgotten moment in a woman’s life becomes a defining characteristic at her death.
