He is the shit, ain't he?

 :o I presume that's a compliment in the South?

In Loving Memory

Heath Ledger



...the cast and crew of this film, from the director down, had gotten into my mind and pulled out images.
Especially did I feel this about Heath Ledger, who knew better than I how Ennis felt and thought,
whose intimate depiction of that achingly needy ranch kid builds with frightening power.
It is an eerie sensation to see events you have imagined in the privacy of your mind
...loom up before you in an overwhelming visual experience.

~  Annie Proulx

Thank you Meryl, both of your 'In Loving Memory' tributes are beautiful indeed, and I couldn't get thru the first one without crying.

Those of you who have been crying are the lucky ones. I just feel sorta ... hollow.  :-\

Thank you for pointing me here with this, Meryl.  :-*





You Rise Still


you slipped away
unobserved
like a silent whisper.
your spirit rises
like soft strands of smoke
from a quenched candle.
you rise far
from this chaos and loss
you rise still.

there is more
beyond this earthly vale
distant shores
where footprints remain
forever etched in sand.
you are there
where shadows are not
where your sun gleams
you are there
you rise still.

you slipped away
in the light of day
I pray you felt no fear
close to the end
for you rise still.
bits of your soul breathe
in these bereft hearts
you are here
even as you rise far
from this restless haze
you rise still.




Rest In Peace.

What beautiful and fitting tributes to Heath this last page of posts contains! Thank you both. I feel completely drained today, - but nevertheless glad that creativity and sensitivity to post such wonderful "Thank You's" can be found here.  :-*

Thank you Meryl, for your loving memories. And Milli and everybody who is able to express what I'm feeling. I can't write any beautiful tribute, words fail me. So I'm thankful four yours.
