November 7th, Pine Creek
« on: November 07, 2006, 03:29:54 pm »
Guess this would belong to our daily thoughts, but since I don't have thread there, I post it here.

Today is November, 7th - the suggested date to meet at Pine Creek, but the postcard came back, stamped deceased :(

Just had to think of it. Brokeback got me good, too.

That explains my bad feeling about today (and I sure was hoping it wasn't because the Democrats are gonna lose...)

Thanks, Penthesilea.

Every time I wrote the date today, something was nagging at me.  Now I know what it was. 

Yesterday was Ennis and Alma's divorce (we "celebrated" it on the ABCs).

Strange to be feeling these anniversaries.

The camping trip that never was. :(

Nice, Milli.

I know it wasn't included in the film, and I'm sure the shot of the pickup in the twilight is more effective since it mirrors the shot of the semi in the twilight at the beginning of the film, but somehow I like that shot of Ennis by "the grieving plain," as Annie called it.

I was actually in a good mood till this. The feeling I experienced  watching that incredibly sad part of the film were resurrected.  :'(  It really hit me.   I know Thanksgiving in BBM wasn't a happy day either.  I got the 2007 BBM calendar.  It just shows regular holdiays, nothing connected to the film.

Any cheerful anniversaries regarding the film coming up soon?  Jack and Ennis never met during the winter and their times together were the more joyful aspects of this film. Nuthin to look forward to until May?  I guess we don't know the date Ennis and Alma get married in November, 1963. Not that that's cause for celebration either as it just closes another window of opportunity, for J&E.

Well, there was the time that Ennis and Jack got Don Wroe's cabin for their get-together and killed themselves a nice elk!! Let's raise a toast to Don Wroe and thank him for lending his cabin for an E&J tryst huntin trip.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year's leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year's bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide.
There are a hundred places where I fear
To go--so with his memory they brim.
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, 'There is no memory of him here!'
And so stand stricken, so remembering him.
