          Bro Patrick:
           heres a song i like,,,,and its title is very fitting to  BBM, and your situation ........... Hope you
like progressive jazz. It's gonna be alright 

Thanks, Darlin', and the absolute BEST  thing I have learned on this planet is that everything will eventually come together in a way that is so perfectly tailored to my needs that it has never ceased to amaze me, astound me, and fill me with Gratitude & Praise.  You are one of these~!  If not for Lynne, not for Bettermost, not for Phillip, not for Brokeback Mountain, not for the One Who Is I would never have beheld the incredible changes that have happened to us both since we met.   And we're just beginning~!  Shared "In The Fire" with my pdoc yesterday.  Along with my therapist, these professsionals need to know what happens to people with unresolved grief~!

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

...Cause I know - A love that will never grow old.

What do we do when we have no one but ourselves to love us and reassure us? It may be "second best", but we can do something to remind ourselves that we are loved. Eat a little comfort food--give your feet a well-earned massage--wear soft, cozy clothes--regard yourself in a mirror and recognize the vulnerability and goodness that is you.  And hopefully, while ever being mindful of your own presence and worth, another will come along and freely give evidence of their keen admiration for the You that is you.

Sorry, this one just flew by my radar.  I just knew you are full of such needed 'truisms' and please continue to share them as you see a need.   They are appreciated beyond your very dreams~!

HEATH:  I feel that this sad, sad news will have a very powerful effect on the emotional depths of the Sure to be Classic:  'Brokeback Mountain'.   I feel it will be easily as important and probably more so, than the James Dean film, his "Rebel Without A Cause"   James transcended generations and I believe Heath will as well.   There are only a few actors who die young yet continue to affect us.  James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, River Phoenix (add your personal ones here) and now..

Our Beloved Heath ...    :'(

Eternal rest grant upon him, O Lord
and let Perpetual Light shine upon him;
May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.


AMEN~!

(ancient Christian prayer)

Brother Patrick, would you say this describes me:

thought to be assertive, dominant, shy, sensitive, emotional, artistic, talented, heplful, dependent, intuitive, unique, introvert, practical, doer, dreamer, nuturing, sensual, clean-minded, traditional, active, organized, idealistic, broad-minded, brave, thoughtful, playful, devoted, flirtatious, idealistic, quiet, proud, loyal, athletic, romantic, compassionate, sympathetic, often funny, flamboyant, caring, and imaginative?
Why do we consume what we consume?
Why do we believe what we believe?
Why do we accept what we accept?
You have a body, a mind, and a soul.... You have a responsibility.

Brother Patrick, would you say this describes me:

thought to be assertive, dominant, shy, sensitive, emotional, artistic, talented, helpful, dependent, intuitive, unique, introvert, practical, doer, dreamer, nurturing, sensual, clean-minded, traditional, active, organized, idealistic, broad-minded, brave, thoughtful, playful, devoted, flirtatious, idealistic, quiet, proud, loyal, athletic, romantic, compassionate, sympathetic, often funny, flamboyant, caring, and imaginative?

Dominant is too harsh; rather, a born leader..
Emotional in a GOOD way..  You are extremely sensitive.
Dependent?  no way..
Introvert? I think Jung would put you right in the middle re: Extrovert (that is a GOOD thing)
Clean-minded and Broad-minded are not mutually exclusive..  You're right on.
Traditional?  In a Good way..
Quiet? Only when you need time to process information.. (that the rest of us couldn't even fathom)
Athletic?  You're probably no more of a jock that the majority of us..
Compassionate?  I don't know if you realize just how compassionate you come across...
Flamboyant? Can't imagine you in drag; too intelligent for (bad) camp..

In short, you are the most unique person that I have ever encountered.   I wish I could sit at your feet for hours and take in your wisdom... 

When the One Who Is mentions YOU by name..  Wow!  Be honored, you deserve it.

{{{Cyberhugs}}}  RIP Heath

I need some catharsis so.. for what it's worth...

In another parallel existence these characters whose lives have become so alive to us live again.  At first it was just Ennis just appearing in Jack’s dreams, Ennis as he had first seen him that crucial moment when his beat up truck pulled up outside Aguirre’s trailer and they discovered what that summer would hold for them.  Ennis, introducing himself to the man who would forever change their lives. Jack, remembering that first electric moment when their hands touched.  Jack had found himself back on the Mountain with only a fair recollection of how he had reached there.  He was young again, wearing his Blue Denim Shirt but found the weather perfect and kept himself occupied with whiskey springs and the wildlife, especially the bluebirds, with their awesome song.  Although he had everything he needed he didn’t feel complete until that one day someone familiar rode up to meet him.  It was Ennis, wearing his Yellow Plaid Shirt and looking young and perky.  They settled down and are still there.  They have no possibility of boredom so every night they experience the power of love that brought them to Brokeback Mountain in the first place.  There’s plenty to eat and they never tire of the unending supply of BetterMost Beans.

Thanks for letting me do this...

Those are wonderful thoughts, Brother. There is part of me that feels that Jack and Ennis do exist, somehow and somewhere, and that in the fullness of Eternity we will know them.
