Meryl and John, wow you are brave, it can't have been easy going there on that day  :'(

Lovely photos

And you also discovered some little treasures: what Heath had for breakfast, that he was always there first, and that the waiter did not know he was an actor. It must have been one of his safe havens, where he enjoyed being treated like a normal human being.

Your tribute was beautiful. And in a place Heath knew and had lived in - in some ways, way better than Karrakatta. So don't worry Meryl  :-* and I don't doubt a minute he was sitting on your shoulder, with a broad smile. Why so serious  ;)

Thank you so much,John and Meryl,for making us share your lovely pilgrimage.I´m sure Heath was watching you and was very happy to know how much love he has carried with him. :)
I like your silences,quiet conversations of evident sensations,where our words are life´s tinsels.
The lost illusions are the found truths.

Je crains que tu doives entendre - oui c'est un subjonctif  :)

Ah, maintenant je comprends! Merci Mouk.  ;)

Thank you, Bel--I must say Merci Mouk also!  ;D

Ah, maintenant je comprend! Merci Mouk.  ;)

Dear Effen-Elle: as for the subjunctif, as now a real-life aphasic (no joke), I'm lucky to figure out the subjunctive in English. Interestingly, during today's speech therapy "conversation" session (with a fabulous, brilliant therapist, a Columbia U. grad student named Mel), I couldn't remember (or say) "Mona Lisa," but I could say "La Jaconde!" Mel said, "So! You may be aphasic in English, but not in French!"

Hah. As if.

Meryl and I had a wonderful breakfast--so cozy. The sad part was later. Oh, well.

Anyway--Je vous aime--tout!

devoir: to have to, must, ought, owe, should.

Tu--

dois (présent de l'indicatif)
devais (imparfait de l'indicatif)
dus (passé simple)
devras (futur)
devrais (conditionnel)
doives (présent du subjonctif)
dusses (imparfait du subjonctif)

("The subjunctive in French is used to express doubt, desire, surprise, judgment, necessity, possibility, opinions, and emotions.")

Oy!

 :P

Dear John, I never knew the word "aphasic" til it happened to you.  All I can say is thank God you were so abundantly blessed with communication skills before your stroke, to serve you now.  I imagine in some ways having had that might make it harder in some ways now, but easier in others. 

But, wow I missed you when you weren't on BetterMost, and I'm SO glad you're back, and sharing your wonderful jmmgallagherness with us again. 

Tu DOIVES savoir combien je t'aime.
