Year has gone by and there's not a day, when I don't think about you. We miss you always, sweet sweet Heath :\'(
The most difficult scene was the paragraph where, on the mountain, Ennis holds Jack and rocks back and forth, humming, the moment mixed with childhood loss and his refusal to admit he was holding a man.

- Annie Proulx -



From the vibration of the floorboard on which they both stood, Ennis could feel how hard Jack was shaking.

It's been a year... and I still don't have the words, all I can say I'm so very sad. But not just that, I'm also grateful that he existed and during his life he touched so many people through his work. And I still keep on thinking, why he touched me so much, a man I never personally get to know. And I won't never forget. That has never happened to me before and probably never won't happen again. There are so many feelings inside me right now that I don't know how to express them... I just miss you so very much Heath Ledger!

     This sure is a hard day for us.  So far, am not able to think of much to say, except am glad we are here for each other.  For those who are not doing so well, and who hurt from the day itself, all my love and a warm hug.

Don't stand by my grave and weep,
For I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond's glint in the snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
In the soft blush of the morning light
I am the swift bird in flight.
Don't stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there,
I did not die.

One year ago, at this same hour I received a call from a Brokie sister here...
...then I knew the unthinkable happened, at first I was numb.
The tears came later,
they are still flowing.


There's a hole in my heart since you left,
You know whut?
You changed my life.




Thank you Heath!

Little darlin'....I miss you more than ever today.  I miss you and love you and I wish you were here with all of my being.

I wish, too, that I could give each and every one of you that's hurting today the warmest, tightest hugs ever.   I'm sending my love out to all of you.   :ghug:

I had expected this day to be hard, but just not this hard.  It's morning here, and I woke up crying, and knew instantly that I wouldn't be going to work today.

The first sound I heard as I got up was Heath's name on TV, and in my mind's ear.  I saw his father being interviewed by the Australian Today Show's Richard Wilkins, and felt so crushed I couldn't breathe.  Kim Ledger said that none of the family members have been able to erase Heath's phone number from their phones because it was so easy to believe, at times, that he was simply away on location, and that they almost expected him to call them sometimes.  I just can't say how much that devastated me...

I felt the need to write a couple of poems about this sad day.


Winter Sun


We've made the journey round the Sun
In an orbit made of blue,
We've traveled round the Sun one time
Since the day it set for you.

The sad, cold Sun, she gazes down
From the empty vault of sky,
Her wintry rays
Throughout this day
Just cannot come nigh.

The pale orb in that arc above,
That vast, and boundless space,
She reaches wanly down to us
But cannot warm Earth's face.



Year To The Day


A year to the day
My alarm this morn
Was not a shrill, thin
Sound.
Instead, a vise around my
Chest
A winch so tightly
Bound.

Year to the day
A summer morn
But winter
Nonetheless,
'Twas winter then
'Tis winter now
'Tis winter in my
Chest.

It's a year to the day
I hear your name
The first sound of the
Morning,
Upon my lips
And on TV
This date of saddest
Mourning.

A year to the day
But no less hard
Our hearts are no less
Pained,
A year to the day
But the pain, it blooms
It never seems to
Wane.

It grows like heather on the moors
Blooms unbound,
Untamed
Girt by purple heather
But
There's beauty in the
Pain.

Your father there, upon my
Screen
A whole year to the Day
He can't erase your number yet
In case you'll call today.

Year to the day
My heart cracks more
To a pulp it has been
Beaten.
The sunshine
Casts sad rays upon
My breakfast left
Uneaten.

It's a year to the day
I can't let you go
I cannot let you go
I love you, Heath
And miss you, Heath
I will not let you go.

A breeze outside it stirs the
Trees
A summer, winter
Breeze
Upon this zephyr I'll send my love
Let it drift to heights above

With heavy hearts, the show goes on,
Your presence lights the way.

But what I'd give to have you back
This year unto the day.

I was just about to post the link to another anniversary tribute I made for YouTube, but as I went to grab the link, I saw that the video had already been removed due to those petty little misgivings the record labels have.  I had only just uploaded it last night.

This has upset me even more than I already was, because I had worked on that video until late into the night, losing a lot of sleep, and putting so much love and effort into it.

So it compounds the sadness a great deal to know that my tribute to that special man was pretty much in vain.   :\'(

Thank you all for your comfort by your words and simply being here. As one of Heath's favorite songs, I know he is singing this to all who love him dearly.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right

((((Ethan))))   Thank you so much.  

Just reading the lyrics...  It brings a beautiful measure of comfort, honey, so thank you.

And actually listening to it just fills my heart so full.  

It's an all-time, much-loved, personal favourite of mine and is so special to me, now more than ever.

I'm sat here with a candle burning and Lords of Dogtown on and I struggle to comprehend Heath's not in this world anymore and that he's been gone a year. Plenty of tears have been cried today in sadness and then pride over the Oscar nod.

This day was always going to be hard, but I'm glad to see I'm ot the only one who found it harder than they could have imagined.

The why question is one I'm sure haunts most of us and will never ever be answered. Why someone who had given/shared so much and yet still had so much left to do was taken so young. The list of things we'd give up in a heartbeat to have him back.

Heath changed our stars and lives forever. I'm grateful that I lived in Heath's time and got to see an actor grow and take on a wide variety of roles, constantly challeging himself and his audience/fans. He'd rather do a small indie type film with a story to tell than the big blockbusters for a fast buck. He seemed a throw back to the old school of acting like Brando and Paul Newman and made him unique and standout from his peers. He's left an incredible body of work, that will ensure he is never forgotten, even by those not even born yet.

And his personality - a geuinely down to earth gentle giant - open minded and harmless. Funny and self depricating. Big hearted. Someone who knew his roots and kept friends and family close to his heart. A guy who threw himself wholeheartedly into everything he did.

I really can't believe its been a year - seems like only yesterday, and as I've said before, still seems like a dream. For me, the best way to honour Heath, is to live as he did. Live for every second and follow our dreams. And let him to continue to inspire us in different ways.

I've rambled enough now, you've all been in my thoughts today, as has all of Heath's family & friends. There's some beautiful words been said and poems written by folks here..that I like to think are raising a smile somewhere. Long may this place continue.

To Heath, where ever you are right now, you are missed more than ever, but will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Take it easy out there. Till we meet again x

I "wrote" this last year for the newsletter...and wanted to post it again....I am using some of Heath’s quotes from his movies, I am sure you will recognise some of them. They are modified to fit my message, and I sincerely hope I am not offending anyone by using them so freely. I apologize in advance.





When something like this happens you are lost. You don't know who you are anymore and what you're capable of. 
But if you can't fix it, dear brokies, you gotta stand it.
Through his work, Heath’s talent, youth and beauty will last forever.

Some quotes will always make me smile, others have just started to make me cry.

Today, the pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle.
I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter.
Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows. Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart... we carry your heart, we carry it in our  hearts.

It's because of you Heath, that we are like this! We've always loved you. You've changed things... forever.
There's no going back. There ain't no reins on this one.

...and I guess we'll see you around, huh?

Rest in peace,

Your faithful squires.

Thank you all for your comfort by your words and simply being here. As one of Heath's favorite songs, I know he is singing this to all who love him dearly.



This song brought me back to some old times... it hurt...

I didn't know that it was one of Heath's favorite songs, but that "little darling", and so old familiar sound simply broke my heart.  :\'(

I thought I was fine but why hadn't I remember about the banner? Wow, just to see that banner being placed again makes all the memories of his death so much more...real.

Today, amoungst only a select few of my close friends, I did a day of silence for Heath. I walked through my classes without saying a word. Of course, there were times when I HAD to talk but for the most part, I was silent and I let everyone know why. I wrote a note saying about Heath's death and the silence and too many people gave it back to me saying, "Has it been that long?"..many were so shocked that a year as passed. I can't believe it as well. I always wondered what it would be like and here it is and I don't know what to do or how to react. I will try to stay positive but I know, the feelings of loss will rush back to me.

Heath, I hope you're peaceful up there heaven and looking over all of us, especially your daughter. You ment the world to us with your strength, your willingness to take on life by the reins, and for just being you. And by this, your work, your passion, your outlook on life, you will always be remembered.

When a good man dies

The earth nods, heaves a sigh

And goes right back to work.

Perhaps selling improvisations

Or taking on impossible odds,

Grandiose dreams by sheer force

Of will become reality.

Who ever would have believed this script

In a world where the brisk business

Of birth, death, renewal and chance

Comes in on the money every time.

When a good man dies

The earth nods, heaves a sigh

And just goes back to work.

You can’t trick fate

But you can mold it with passion,

Bend it by ambition

And turn it toward a better world.
