Of course I won't love him any less, but I will grieve more, if that is possible - knowing how he must have felt there at the end. Therefore I hope hope hope it isn't true - that it was just a random event, however horrible and tragic.


And I know this is completely random and irrational, but the thought just struck me that his name surely will be among those who've passed away and are remembered during the Academy Awards. That just makes me want to scream.


I thought that too (about the Oscars) about half way through my 30 minute commute home, after I had stopped bawling...

Regardless of how or why - I am heart broken.  I simply don't want to believe it. 

Now it seems as tho' Ennis has also died.  I know that doesn't make sense - but that is how it feels right now.

And although I haven't been around in a long time - I knew others here would know how this feels.

I had that thought on the car ride home too, that Ennis had died...

I'm still in shock, I actually took BBM out last night as I haven't watched it for about 6 months, of course Heath/Ennis blew me away as usual. Funny how I still cry after all the viewings.
His daughter and family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

The world seems so haywire these days.

Gotta love our boys*!*

I'm kind of feeling this same way.  Tell you what, I'm going to watch Brokeback Mountain tonight!

really, i'm wondering if I'll ever be able to watch it again...

I am in Australia too and it is devastating seeing the pictures on the news.  I have to stop watching - I have all the pictures I need in my head anyway.

Again the BBM message comes through: make the most of this life and those in it you love.  It's just not worth it to hold anything back.




Old Brokeback got us good and it sure ain't over

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Oh God, I finally caught it on CNN and I wish I hadn't! What a horrible sight, all those photographers and crowds pressing up against barriers. I so didn't need to see the black body bag being wheeled out amid media frenzy but too late now.

I hate all that horrible hoopla. It looks like a circus, so undignified. Have people no respect? I won't watch more news coverage tonight. Hopefully they'll get something more respectful together by tomorrow.

And the CNN reporter was dreadful, callous, uncaring - he said so many horribly uncaring things. Another death, another dollar...

Excuse me. I need to go hit something and wipe my eyes.

My heart is broken for Heath, and for his loved ones
And us, whose lives have been so changed and enriched by his presence
What an immeasurable loss

Rest in peace, Heath

Nic,  you are so right.  

Heath gave us the gift of Ennis that not even his death can take away.

All I can say is:  I love you all.
