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.
Hi, hungry hungry! A little silver lining to the grief to see you again. I always though you left us because you were fabulously happy and living your life to the fullest. That's true, isn't it!! I emailed you today but it bounced back. So my heart leaped to see you here again! Thanks for huddling with us in our grief.
May 2019 be better for us all.

On the ride home from work tonight, I was reading an interview the AV Club did with Linda Cardellini about "Freaks and Geeks," http://www.avclub.com/content/feature/linda_cardellini ("Brokeback Mountain" isn't mentioned in it.).  One thing she said about the show struck me as applicable to Heath, "Well, sometimes bright lights burn fast, and you really can't count on anything lasting too long."

    I was in a store at a cash register buying things that don’t really matter when I heard the news.  They had the radio on and I heard the name Heath Ledger, so I listened wondering what he was up to now.  The only thing I heard was “Heath Ledger, dead at twenty-eight.”

   I stood paralyzed, an old man standing at a cash register, trying very hard not to cry about someone he didn’t even know.  It must have shown because the clerk asked me, “Are you all right?”  I shook my head, took my change and left wondering why he was dead so young, and I was still alive.




   I grew up on borrowed heroes.  Wondering how they’d react if they knew  who I really was, what I really was.  It took half a century before I saw someone who would give me a voice.  Someone who, straight or not, understood well enough what I had gone through to be able to show the world.  Someone who could be my real hero.

   I will miss him.

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

On IMDb it says in his list of personal quotes:

Quote
"I'm not good at future planning. I don't plan at all. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. I don't have a day planner and I don't have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future."

I live in the now [..] not in the future.....

i made a huge mistake and actually clicked onto the Heath Ledger IMDb Board. Can't believe how many horrible ppl felt the need to suddenly flock to his page. :-X But it gave me reason 10000000 why I love BM and all my fellow Brokies so much. The few "real" friends and family I have who even know who he is...was... :'(... are only sad because "there goes another cute face in hollywood". I have no words for them.
Thank you so much everyone. Apparently you guys are the only ones who really know how I feel right now. And I really appreciate all the hugs so many of you were giving out. I really needed it. :)

I love you all.

And I'm still waiting for that pinch to wake me up from this dreadful nightmare.
