Herzlichen Dank! That means a lot to me. IMO it's hard to see photos of Jake in RL and not see Jack's spirit somehow present like an aura.  :-*

One more contribution from the Performance Thread:

Chant

East is the Wind, is the gold sun rising; eagle flying free sees the open door

South is the Fire, is the red noon blazing; wolf upon the ledge feels what came before

West is the Water, is the blue dusk falling; brown bear in his cave looks to what will be

North is the Earth, is the black night cloaking; elk in forest deep knows the mystery


Brokeback is the Wind, is the Fire glowing,  Brokeback is the Water, is the Earth made strong

Hearts that are joined upon the Sacred Mountain must forever dance to its ancient song.

Yeehaw


How beautiful and well written... Meryl, you're a poet too~  Rayn

One Mountain, Two Men in Haiku


High peaks surrounding         
Snowmelt fed deep mountain lake
A pure heartó Ennis


Truck on open road
Red lining to Wyoming
One sky-wide hopeó Jack

In May and June of 2007, a new wave "broke" over BetterMost from IMDb, thanks to the continued destructive behavior of trolls and the indifference of IMDb's moderators.  Chief among them was the True Oracle of Phoenix.  We commemorate their coming with the quote of one of his last posts on The Other Board:

Dry your eyes if this board dies,
for we are not defeated!
There is a B E T T E R way, dear friends -

they play "The Wings",
I have begun repostIng things --

If you press me to say why I loved him,
I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.

I took a chance that you would say yes.  It DOES look wonderful.  You have a knack, Friend.
