Heath Ledger, 1979 - 2008

I'm sure most everyone on my f-list has heard the news by now, but I just wanted to add in my own little tribute here. I was shocked when I learned of his death - if it hadn't come from my local cable news station I probably would have dismissed it as a joke. As it was I sort of half-turned towards the TV from my position in the kitchen and went, "WHAT?"

I can't believe Heath Ledger is gone. I just saw Brokeback Mountain a couple of months ago, and loved it. That movie would not have been what it was without him. I guess this is yet another reminder of how nothing is permanent, of how even the most eager, alive young person can suddenly have their life snuffed out like it's nothing.

It's an old story. Believe me, I know.

Rest in peace, Heath. Your family is in my thoughts.
