"For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink form the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance."


Farewell, darling Heath.

Safe journey home, precious one.

Hello everybody.  Its been a long time since I've dropped in to say hey... and I wish ... oh god I wish it were for a better reason than this.

I can't believe it.  I literally couldn't sleep last night. I heard it on the first news bulletin and the tears started. I need to watch Brokeback today but I needed to come and give all of you a big hug and tell you I'm thinking of each and every one of you that has been touched by BBM and by Heath.

What a terrible, terrible waste. Nobody should die at 28; movie star or not.

Heath, you will be missed always. Thank you for sharing your immeasurable talent with the world. The brightest stars shine for only a short time. Rest in peace. We love you.
Chut up!

where in oz are u nic?

I'm in Sydney, new to Oz, only about 4mths here.  When I first got here I was taking it all in thinking this is the country that produced & influenced Heath & I kept thinking I was seeing Heath look-a-likes on the train but of course no-one could have shone as brightly as he did, even in that understated unique way he had about him.  Oh Heath...
Old Brokeback got us good and it sure ain't over

((This is going to be like the death of James Dean - we'll always wonder what more he might have done.)

Absolutly. What a waste.

I'm trying to hold it together.  I feel like sleeping!

Exactly Littlewing - like sleeping and waking up later to find out this terrible news isn't true.

My mind cannot process 'Heath Ledger' and 'dead' in the same sentence.

It's almost as if that sad ending of Brokeback where Ennis is holding the two shirts has taken another step towards an even sadder ending. I remember when many of us were talking about whether or not there would be a sequel to Brokeback. Of course that will definitely not happen now and that's not saying I wanted a sequel. It's just that now part of Brokeback is gone forever. I remember my friend said he saw on television where they were showing that there would be a sequel. That was never confirmed. Anyway, he said that they showed Heath Ledger on one horse and the other horse had no one on it. It was Jack's horse. Now I can't help but feeling that nobody is on either horse now. Heath and Jake brought Ennis and Jack to life as we all know.

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


Same here...I don't think I can ever watch it again.  Now TMZ is saying that he had pneumonia.   I should go, i'm still in my anger stage.

I'm watching CNN live and they were just showing images of La Paz Bolivia, where heavy rain is drowning the vast pieces of land. They showed herds of sheep running to find dry bits of land...

Reminders everywhere..
