Big big  :ghug: What a ridiculous group of people you work with, Tammy, and what a wonderful group of friends we have here. <^(


I have been frustrated too when people start to talk about what happened, usually from some tabloid report they heard, and spout inaccurate information. It always makes me feel better on the occasions when they actually listen when I give them the facts. For the ones who won't, we just have to steel ourselves to ignore them and remember that there will always be ignorant people in our midst and we can only do so much to help them be more informed, better people. The fact that you work with these people and have to be around them all day makes this one an extra challenge for you, so I'm giving you some extra  :ghug:  :ghug: for support.

oh tammy... that is really upsetting.  :ghug:
but yes, as long as we here stay together let others say their stupid thing... >:(

i received a dvd from australia yesterday, from a friend, 30 min broadcast TV Heath story of his life...
it may have been a bit "TV" and gossipy.. but just looking at his pictures, moments from his movies, quotes from interviews...
i was crying..
and i really had thought to be over it - i often think of him. but never cried again...
until last night....  :\'(

Tammy, I can only repeat what others have said here before me. I know it must have been terrible for you to hear people talking about Heath this way... but they're stupid and ignorant and they don't know nothing about him. Don't let them hurt you.  :ghug: :ghug:
The truth is... sometimes I miss you so much I can hardly stand it.

although I was gassed to see TDK I'm not sure where I stand on the Parnassius yet hell I still havent watched the Crow yet starring Brandon Lee as he died while filming that movie it makes it harder for me to separate when an actor dies while in the process of their work
I know what you mean, I feel the same way. I have never watched that movie either for the same reason.

I never got around to seeing The Crow either. Kept thinking I would, but didn't want to right away and then the time just passed. But since the circumstances there were so different, I guess I felt differently about it. Heath's death had nothing to do with Parnassus, so I don't think I could stay away even if I wanted to.

That's true. I keep thinking about how years from now a new generation will be watching his films and appreciate how special and talented he was. Like now when I watch James Dean in those 3 great films he made, I'm in awe of how unique he was too. Heath will also live on in his  wonderful work.

 :ghug: tizi  :ghug: I have learned to embrace the tears when they come, sometimes when I least expect them. I think of them as tears of love, so I welcome them with my soul wide open. We are the lucky ones, to still feel the love for Heath, no matter how long time has past. Like you, I also find that I don't cry all the time, while thinking of Heath. Sometimes, I am just happy to have known his work, his life. And whenever I need to, I think of his smile, as Ennis, as Will Thatcher, as Harry, as himself, and the cold world can be as cold as ice, and I still feel warm, warm enough to share.  :ghug:
Heath, you are loved, like this, always.

Tammy  :ghug: :ghug: :ghug:

People can be so ignorant and close-minded, like you said and there is nothing really we can do about it. Everyone here in support of Heath, has probably went through the same thing, where people have thought Heath was messed up, doing pills or shooting up heorine, all those false rumors. You don't know how many times I've had to try and fight back, whether it was a good friend of mine or just somebody random in my class. The important thing to know is that you know the truth, how influentutial and loving Heath was and even if your co-workers don't agree with you now, there might come a time when one of them regrets saying those comments, because you spoke up. Heath was a great man, and we can just wish that one day, everyone will finally realize that as well..

Now that I have seen TDK, I know for sure that this movie had NOTHING to do with Heath's tragic passing.
Every scene he's in in the movie reeks with his joie de vivre.  Despite the vileness of the Joker, Heath was loving this experience.  He was freed up; he finally had a role that he could mold in any direction he wanted because the Joker was so totally unbound by any human rules or strictures.  I really believe Heath loved playing this character, and I can see NO evidence at all that this could have contributed to his depression or illness.  I think that's just BS some media nerds cooked up to sell more press. If for no other reason than that, I am glad I saw the movie because now I know his death was not attributable in any way to this film or this role.  He was truly at the height of his career.  God bless our boy!

     I was just wondering what this world would be like if each of us could touch just one person the way Heath has touched million/bill.

     Katharine Hepburn once said in an interview when asked what made her a great actress.

    "I don't know what it is.  Some kind of electricity or something.  But I got it."

     I think that sums up Heath Ledger nicely....boy did he ever have it.

Tammy  :ghug:  :ghug:  :ghug:


If people start to speak stupid and nasty things about Heath, I just ignore it, let it go over. I'm in very fortunate situation, cos' people  around me don't even speak much about Heath, for example where I work.

I just finished reading John McShane's book Heath Ledger - his beautiful life and mysterious death, and this book was very nice to read because it doesn't speak about Heath in a nasty way at all. Instead it tells about his career and making different movies very nice and interesting way, and about his death tells only the facts about prescribed drugs which were found. Nothing scandalous, nothing exaggeration. When I read about the wake Heath's family held at the Indiana Tea House at Cottesloe Beach near Perth, one of Heath's favourite places, I had teary eyes but was smiling at the same time. The event was so beautiful and if you can use word "happy" in this context, happy too. Some family members and friends went down to the beach and entered the surf. The author ends this chapter: " The sun sank slowly in the distance, casting a beautiful pink glow as the sound of laughter travelled across the sands that he had known and loved for so long: it was a fitting end to a brief, but astonishingly full life - a finale that Heath Ledger would no doubt have approved of."
ĒIt is said some lives are linked across time. Connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages. Destiny.Ē

I finally saw The Dark Knight today and it hit me so much I can't stop crying again. He was so great, so unigue. I cannot get his image out of my eyes, still seeing him, crying at the destiny's unjustice. That is just not fair. He was just so talented. He totally blown me away. He stole my every sight, my every thought, my every feeling as the Joker. It was a real masterpiece I was witnessing and the pain of him unable to shoot any other movie in the future is just too much to bear.

I feel such love, such deep frustrating painful love for him. No release for me, no release from pain.

I must tell it to you, darling once again. I love you so much, Dear darling, I am so unhappy and heartached. I wish nothing but you coming back and LIVE.
I feel like again being in the place of no hope, no relief. You gone, your beautiful person, being,  gone forever. It is just so tragical. The world seems so dark, so helpless now, I am lost in love and pain. I am crying forever and never stops crying for you, Heath angel.

I will never undestand the ways of fate. You have been taken. It shouldn't have been. All I know with my entire being that you shouldn't have died in your prime. It is not RIGHT, I will never understand it.

And I love you, even more now, my love is not fading with you being gone. I feel like I have never ever loved any actor more than I love you now.

Sleep well, my love, I cannot.

Your Ennis, your Joker will never be forgotten.

     Oh sweet darlin nikita come sit by the fire with us. 

     We will watch the moon rise and share a drink or three and talk of the love       we have shared. 

     We will make it through this night together.
   
     And when the sun comes round again my hope is for you, for us all, to find that love still waiting there.
     
   
     
     

Thank you, I am so sad.

It is morning here and my thoughts are with him. My mum looks at me and saying I am stupid that I cry for an actor. Surely you went hrough this. OMG, but it is so hard to let him go. He was so talented. For now I wish he was someone like Orlando Bloom, only dull pretty face, no talent whatsoever. It would hurt much less.

I am here, dear Brokies, I know I appear once in a while and cry here desperately maybe ruining your acceptance.
I thought I was OK about his passing, but I am not. I am maybe at odds with higher power but I feel like I will never make peace with his death.

Anybody feel it like I do?
