Headed RIP, this thread could be a vehicle to mourn, note or celebrate the life and/or passing of any whom we regard as significant ... just prompted today by the weekend news of the incredible Paul Newman's demise.

'Mazing actor and individual .... some of fave films of his were Butch & Sundance, The Sting, and that most spiritual of films, Cool Hand Luke ; I did not realize his charitable trust raised £175 m dollars.

Gone to join the great Rainbow Dance in the Skies x

Doh ! Sorry wrong location - moderators please move if you feel so inclined !!

Only every night ?

How about each perpetual moment ?

Seriously yes .... hadn't been sure if, by posting a thread like this it might give weight to the illusion of life ... but then again, one of our purposes here seems to be to feel emotion, hence the loss of our awareness in the warp and woof of the spindrift

Another song - Ruby Tuesday, Rolling Stones (Marty - vinyl day !):

"Dying all the time

lose your dreams and you

might lose your mind

in life unkind "

... then again, losing our mind might open our heart ... x

Its maybe a paradox; you evoke an inaccurate quotation somewhere deep in my brain about poetry, from who was it, Byron, or Shelley perhaps ? Or neither - something like, poetry is passion recalled in tranquililty ...

and as Neil Young said, 'Rust never sleeps' !

Hi all:

     I actually like Paul's salad dressings.....the lites have very little salt and no cholestoral. They do have some calories but not as much as some others. Quite a variety, too!

     I thought he was much younger. I am still getting over the death of Robert Mondavi. I like wine and have been to Lodi.

     It is not so much that people older than me die..it is that people younger than me die. So, I do, indeed, live on borrowed time.

     I am very concerned that my cats are still with me....they are ridiculously old and insist on getting even older. Should something happen to me, who would care for them? Well, they would not be in a place that they have known for six years, after we fled a place we had known for sixteen years. They would be in some kind of shelter....and they would then die. Ahhh...Siss might go on...she is a kid....and pretty resilient.I think she is about 14 or 15.....I can't even think about when she came into my life, but she was all ready 8.

     I always thought, after round 3 or 4 that there would be no more! But then, Luckylee shows up and I started again, even while watching Stampy and Pendleton die.

     My beloved ISIS once said to me in a pique "you love the cats MORE THAN you love me" and I said "no, not at all, they are a pain in the &^%, and ruin all our stuff." ISIS is long gone; two of the cats who heard those words are still here with me.

     I hope I live to see them go...argghhh.....that doesn't sound nice.....but it is true in the spirit that it is meant!

Peace Profound,

Marty, Sissy, Poopy, and Lucky-lee (pronounced Luk-a-lee)

Marty - for a moment then I thought you were meaning me ! Delusions of grandeur, moi ? Ha

Yes, I like Paul N's concoctions - especially his fiery sauces.

Great moment in Butch Cassidy when Butch and Sundance return to the gang to find some big villain has tried to take over; he challenges Butch to a knife fight; Sundance says, Butch, you don't do knife fights (or something similar); Butch says, it's ok - then, to Sundance (Robert Redford) - if he kills me, shoot him ...

Butch walks boldly towards the knife wielding baddy and suddenly stops, when quite close and says

- Whoa hold on, what are the rules ?

- (bad guy, looking perpelexed) - Rules, who ever heard of rules in a knife fight ?

Then as his attention is distracted, Butch says, oh well if there's no rules ... and swiftly kicks bad guy where it hurts most, then as he drops the knife and doubles up in agony, Butch tenderly puts his arm around his shoulders and consoles him; interestingly, this scene is slightly reprised/reframed in Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider

Ho hum, another great actor crossed dimensions ... Patrick McGoohan, erstwhile The Prisoner, to whom reference has been made in these threads - for me, one of The metaphysical TV programmes (he died yesterday, aged 80). Famous too, for having turned down the part of James Bond as he classed it 'immoral'.

Here is the opening sequence of episode 1, from You Tube:

Blessings, Ever

Paul

ps, Marty, if you read this - we were both wrong! Although Pat's parents were Irish and he grew up in Ireland, he was actually born in New York !!

SPOOKY!
Hi PeaJay et al:
     You Brrrrrrits.....hope the chill has left the Isle (I hear it is a bit mild in Brrrristol this evening).....called him Danger Man; and we called him Secret Agent Man, based on the Johnny Rivers theme song that we saw on our telly. I was a fairly young man and fan of the show. I have always been a fan of Number 6 and would have voted for him to be Number 2, if I could have voted in the election. This is a reference to "The Prisoner" for those not yet "in the know."
     IMHO, a great actor has exited the stage, but he will always be remembered as Secret Agent Man.
     NOW......THE COINCIDENCE OR HIS FATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read on.............................
     Patrick McGoohan was known for Danger Man/Secret Agent Man but took on cult status for the quirky short lived show...thirteen segments...called "The Prisoner".....quote from the opening segment in the USA version...."I am not a number, I am a man!" In the show, he is Number Six.
     The refrain from our theme song for Danger Man/Secret Agent Man....done years before.....
isssssssss.............."the've given you a number and taken way your name"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-8yfFLmQ-c   .....hopefully this link takes you to the Johnny Rivers song, which became a top ten seller and gave Johnny Rivers a short, but splendid career.

The show competed with "The Saint" (Sir Roger Moore) and a new show...at least to us..."The Avengers" which took off like wildfire when Honor Blackman was replaced by Dame Diana Rigg (love you Di!!!!!!!!!!).

Patrick, a fellow New Yorker (thanks PeaJ), is not dead, and lives on in my mind very real...and shall live on as long as images can be seen and songs can be sung! But, I still have a tear and a sniff............................................

Yours,
Marty and Luckylee, Poppyhead and SissyGirl

Thanks Marty ... and if you or any other fellow Boarders visit London, I could lovingly take you to the house that is used in the opening credits (No 6's London home), which I tracked down one day .. it is still there ...

ps, at my swimming pond there swims an old, former stunt man, one of the old school, who used to work occasionally with Patrick M, amongst other famous greats. He said he was a 'good man' - and also, very religious. He also turned down the part of The Saint, on similar, moral grounds. He insisted that his character in Danger Man never carried a gun.

EACH DAY IS A NEW BEGINNING
Each day is a new beginning!
So I start it with a smile.
Enjoy the art of living,
Do things that are worthwhile,
Like loving and forgiving,
And making time to spare,
To make some person happy,
By showing that I care.

How true Aquarius - but also, how disciplined we have to be to hold to that !

Incidentally Marty, in the very first Avengers (interesting title that since I have just posted elsewhere about forgiveness), TV trivia, Ian Hendry and Patrick Macnee were the first two characters, and they were 'avenging' the murder of the character of Ian Hendry's wife, I dimly recall ... Honor B i think joined slightly later; and Patrick Macnee's character was second fiddle to Ian Hendry's. Not hugely metaphysical, but of some culturally historical interest to some ... maybe ...

I mourn having positive influences outside. Seems everyone around non-family is down, depressed and looking for everyone else to solve their problems for them. (good for business, but bad for socializing) I am very thankful that my own family is what keeps me strong.

Also, as far as problems of the world, it sure seems that everyone points the fingers at everyone else, instead of self. Everything starts with self.

I mourn my father, my mother in law, my grandmothers and grandfathers and as always, my beloved Schmo Dawg. They live.... in heart and spirit.

May you all find comfort and joy in those around you!

Indeed correct, John Drake never carried a gun. Its what made the show soooo good!

'They live.... in heart and spirit.' Not only there, dear Friend. They - the same as everybody else - are eternal beings who cannot and will not die. They are alive in the world of spirit. Some say that those in that world are more alive than we are in this physical existence. It's a view I agree with because they are alive - in that condition we cannot help noticing and knowing it - that first and foremost all human beings are spirit and soul, and that these parts are more important our physical bodies - valuable and important though they are, for a long as we are on this level of life.

With love - Aquarius
