I was dumbfounded when I first saw BBM.  It was so close to home that I was devastated.  I had my own Jack.  I was 19 and he was 22.  I am now 75, and I have never experienced a love as lush and all-consuming as in our time together.  I still weep to remember those times, and am reminded of the line from the film and short story, "If you can't fix it, you've got to stand it."  That is hard to do.

Thank you Monika, Front-Ranger and CellarDweller for your welcome.  I appreciate that a lot.  I can say little more at this time without losing it.  We were not cowboys, but seaman on a ship.  I was a scrawny, very young and naive 19-year old while he was big and strong, funny, and knew everything.  With him I felt safe, and every day was an adventure.  So much time has passed, I would think it would get easier to bear.  You can just imagine how I felt to hear Ennis say "Jack, I swear."  It's what I had been saying for a long time.

Welcome to Bettermost, X-man!

We're glad to have you here. We were all struck hard by BBM, so you're among likeminded people here.

Hi....I joined this Forum a long time ago....but I have never actually posted on here before.
Will take me a while to find my way "around"....but hope to come here more often and see what goes on here !! Some names I have seen look familiar and I dare say mine will be to them too.!

For those who don't know me ..... Brokeback Mountain haunts me and won't leave me alone.

I lust after Jake Gyllenhaal......but am totally in love with Heath Ledger. Lets leave it at that for now.
