No, not really. They don't understand. For them it was just an actor. They don't know nothing about Brokeback.

I will die or have a nervous breakdown

Niki....you need to take a break...go for a walk, ride a bicycle...do something to get some of these stress chemicals out of your body. Seriously, sweetie...

Well, I got to weeping in my car yesterday listening to this song, and thinking of two losses I've had, that are not mine to have really but are there just the same:  that of my manager and friend of the last 10 years leaving the state yesterday for another job and another dream, and of course that of Heath's passing.  The sun was just setting, and spectacularly, when the enormity of both losses in my life hit me all at once.

Shadow of the Day - Linkin Park

I close both locks below the window
I close both blinds and turn away

Sometimes solutions aren't so simple
Sometimes good bye's the only way

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you

With cards and flowers on your window
Your friends all plead for you to stay

Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple
Sometimes good bye's the only way

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you.

I do hate that you had to discover us through this tragedy; however, I sure am glad you did discover us. I'm sure everyone else here will agree with that. I do believe it shows that Brokeback Mountain and Heath do live on through us. At one point I was afraid this tragedy would have tragic results for BetterMost; however, you are one of those people who actually came here after the tragedy. In fact it seems we have new people coming on as well as people who disappeared from the forum that have now returned. I am glad to see both, but I do wish it were because of more pleasant news. Anyway, welcome to BetterMost!!!

Jack

Jack, thank you so much for the welcome. I can't get over how open, kind, and welcoming people here are, even in this dark time.

Starry Night

by Don McLean

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a summer's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colors on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Starry, starry night.
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
Swirling clouds in violet haze,
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
Weathered faces lined in pain,
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

For they could not love you,
But still your love was true.
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night,
You took your life, as lovers often do.
But I could have told you, Vincent,
This world was never meant for one
As beautiful as you.


Starry, starry night.
Portraits hung in empty halls,
Frameless head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met,
The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
The silver thorn of bloody rose,
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they're not listening still.
Perhaps they never will...


Oh God, Kerry, I have no more tears left...  :'(

God:  Time to get goin, cowboy.

I guess this says it all.........
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

A Scot's Farewell

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no tears in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little but not for long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me but let me go.

For this is a journey we all must take
And each must go alone
Itís all a part of the master plan
A step on the road to home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friend we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me Ö but let me go Ö






That's terrific, thank you.

This is when we need to pull together most... but we're a family and hope you'll be here for the happy times too.

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were
Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me - Would we? Could we?
Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
