Look up here, I’m in heaven

It’s well known that I survived a six week coma on the Royal Free ITU in 2007, after having had a cardiac arrest and respiratory arrest simultaneously.

I am only motivated doing my work promoting wellbeing for people beyond a diagnosis of dementia (TM – Kate Swaffer’s term), and motivated by my mum’s happiness.

The lyrics of David Bowie’s “Lazarus” have enormous personal significance for me.

 

 

 

Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below

Ain’t that just like me
By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money

I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird

Now ain’t that just like me
Oh I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I’ll be free

Ain’t that just like me
