Undeniably beautiful thread...

But no one is dead... because you keep them in your heart... so true... they cannot be gone/dead... because you testify...

They are now...

That's a little vague, brah... so lemme continue...

First off, I'm sorry if any of you found this offensive...

"Rest in peace".... literally implies they/the "deceased" are still somewhere... it shows you/we are still sending positive vibes and Love to them... which is a great sign of Faith in our hearts....

But the Truth is, they are not gone... as testified by you/us/the "living" because they are still in our hearts, minds, body, souls, etc... so since we exist, they cannot be "dead" as they are still with us... alive.

And since so many have testified to their beauty and Love for them, their spirit is literally still living thru us... there is no such thing as death, "Energy cannot be created or destroyed."

The only time it can be is now... which includes the "Big Bang"/"Let there be light." and sets the stage for all phenomena to become. All is One. So, if "lossed" loved ones are still in your heart, then they are still with us/not dead.

They have "returned" to Heaven(which is in our hearts) where they are patiently waiting for us to bring Heaven Home, the Perpetual Burn, where we will dance and laugh merrily with all that has ever been and guide whatever will be... we just got a little more work to do in this realm of potential suffering, sin and sorrow in overcoming it, choosing peace, contentment & Love.

This might be tricky... but we're not "going to Heaven".... Heaven is coming down to us... we just gotta strive for it and make it happen... and it doesn't take a leap of Faith, it's a choice... and Burning Man is the perfect living metaphor that proves we've made the right choice.

Peace, Love & endless blessings on your House(s)

William Goldman

Legendary Hollywood screenwriter William Goldman has died at the age of 87 from colon cancer and pneumonia, The New York Times reports. Goldman won two screenwriting Oscars, for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) and All the President's Men (1976). But by far his most beloved (and most widely quoted) film across multiple generations is 1987's postmodern fairytale, The Princess Bride.

Other screenwriting credits include The Stepford Wives (the 1974 original, not the mediocre 2004 remake), A Bridge Too Far (1977), Chaplin (1992), and Misery (1990). Two of his screenplays are adaptations of his own novels: Marathon Man (1976) and The Princess Bride. Goldman was especially fond of the latter novel, first published in 1973. It was 15 years before Director Rob Reiner managed to bring the story to the silver screen after having long been a fan of the book.

The Princess Bride was only a modest success at the box office, grossing $30.8 million against its relatively modest $16 million production budget. But it kept gaining new fans, especially after it was released on home video, to eventually achieve cult classic status.


(Canoe: I'll admit to having purchased an anniversary version of The Princess Bride (with additional words from the author), but I'm not going to admit to spending two hours trying to find a flight to Europe to visit the museum he said contained the famous six-fingered sword.)

But you didn't post the pic. You posted a link with all of the (and your) tracking identifiers. Anyone clicking that link gives up their machine (and potentially perosnal) identifiers and the fact that they got that link from you and your computer. No thanks.

I met Plowman here on ePlaya when Fat Sam, Plowman, Red, Somnivore, Greg, myself and others started Stag Camp in 2007 with only 2 of us ever having met face to face before hitting the Playa. I just can't describe what a great guy he was to Burn with. Damn. I already miss the shit out of you brother. Lots of aching hearts tonight in your family at Stag Camp and BRC Welding and Repair.
