Lucy in the Sky...


One of our all time fav's... Lucy in the Sky - September 2008

Ever since Lucy died Drew has been looking for Lucy in the sky.  

This might sound silly to some of you, especially if you know my husband, an astute scientist who studies data and looks for trends and statistical significance.  

He is looking at the cloud formations, looking for the letters in Lucy's name.   

He takes pictures of the cloud letters and then shows them to me, asking me if I see what he sees.  

I love that he does this.  

I love that he is looking for her, in the sky nonetheless.  I mean, who doesn't know the infamous Beetles song "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds"?  

It doesn't make any sense, but neither does the death of a child.

On Monday night when we returned home from a marathon day, Drew called to me to look up in the sky.  For a very brief moment there was a cloud formation that looked as if it read "Lucy", every letter in her name was practically visible.  

Just as quickly as it appeared it disappeared; too fast for us to even photograph, but we both saw it.  Lucy in the sky...  

He's one of the best!  Lucy and Daddy - January 2014
