When you love somebody, there’s so much you could say about them it would take pages. I want to say everything here in a way. But, there’s no
point. I’ll just ramble
He wanted people to be better. He always - and I mean always - wanted better for people. All people - everywhere. He was rooting for the
underdog and the downtrodden
He had an unbelievable amount of empathy. I’m pretty sure it was because he had been through so much in his own life. I’ve struggled for the past
few days trying to figure out what I would say or not say - trying to respect his privacy. He was absolutely the toughest person I’ve personally
ever known. I do not exaggerate. I’ll leave it at that
He would do nice things for people - in secret
No matter what - always with the humor. He could make me laugh even when I didn’t want to. It was a gift. His friends and family would tell you the
They would also tell you he could sing. I mean - really sing. But, he had a crippling case of stage fright. If you could get a few beers in him he
might occasionally let go. He was riding his scooter on a dark country road recently and he said he just let it all out - loud as can be, all the way
home. God that made him happy. Made me happy too
He loved music - all kinds. He could find you a song to fit any situation or subject. Also a gift
He made me happy. He made me a better person. I loved him dearly. We were supposed to end up in the same country, but now that will never happen and
I’m not sure what I’m going to do
My handsome ginger lad
I wanted this to be shorter, but there you go. I felt I couldn't say anything at first, but we were going to post pics of the two of us from Italy one
day and it felt wrong now to say nothing. I have to thank Kali and Argentus/Argentus and Kali for getting me through this - and through the past week.
Also - Zazz. It really helps to have friends
I have to thank Skyfloating for how we met. It was in a thread of his way back when - and a comment I made about what the OP was really about
started a back and forth argument in U2Us. He liked to argue. Obviously. He could be a scrapper and a renegade, but most of it came with some serious
joshing - and it started us down this road
In that first argument, turned out out Blups was right and I was wrong. Like usual - so annoying… :-)
Attain complete emptiness, Hold fast to stillness.
The ten thousand things stir about; I only watch for their going back. Things grow and grow, But each goes back to its root.
Going back to the root is stillness. This means returning to what is. Returning to what is Means going back to the ordinary.
Understanding the ordinary: Enlightenment. Not understanding the ordinary: Blindness creates evil. Understanding the ordinary: Mind opens. Mind
opening leads to compassion, Compassion to nobility, Nobility to heavenliness, Heavenliness to Tao.
Tao endures. Your body dies. There is no danger.
