Posted:I called home today.the place I call home anyway.where my stuff is and where I pay rent.where I still feel like i'm a stranger.my roomate answered.he said "have you heard the news?"I said no.he said:"Will passed away." "he was swimming in the lake.""he drowned."my heart sank.a chill ran up my back.i didn't understand.it was impossible.he was so young, so full of life!I firedanced with him,all summer down at the park.I told him I would keep going through the wintereven when it got too cold. but I broke my promise.And without me there,everyone else stopped too.How I wish I could have had those few more nights with him.I still have his firestaff. The one he made lovingly, expertly,with his own two hands out of a piece of driftwood.a beautfiul thing it was, collapsible into 3 piecesFor easy carrying.Too bad he'll never carry it again.I remember the night me and him spent on the beachdancing, talking about lifedrinking tea, eating breadliving.he was invited to my New Years Eve party goddamnit!I was dissapointed because he didn't show up.Now I know why.He inspired me, he taught me, he was my brother.And now he's gone.I don't know how to feel now.------------------~whoosh whoosh whoosh~

Posted:I feel for you. Had a friend die on me a few years back (on New Years Eve of all days) and it hurts, badly. It makes you realise that everything does end, that we are fragile and most importantly, that every minute of every day is precious to us all. Nothing is ever the same again.You have the memories. People live on in memories. Their life lives on in our lives, which go on. His life goes on in your dance. Mourn, but do not drown in sorrow because the world still turns and the universal life goes on.You spin, he still spins.Peace.

Posted:*Sick Puppy pours out his 40oz of Mickey's on the curb for all the dead homies*Sorry about your loss Rave. My heart goes out to you.Dom has a good point. You spin, he spins with you, you'll always be able to find him in the fire.(in place of my normal profile signature, as it may not be so appropriate here, I will put some of the best wisdom ever passed on to me)----------------Always drink to remember..... Never to forget.

Posted:I went home, rolled up a big fat roach joint, and me and my friends hopped into my car and smoked it. As I sparked it, I said, "This is for you will, wish you were here" Maybe it might seem like a silly gesture to you, but it meant something to me.And it wasn't to put it off either, I am not running away from this problem, burying my pain in marijuana. trust me this is too fresh and deep to bury anyway. the pot only made me more introspective and thoughtful, about the whole situation.------------------~whoosh whoosh whoosh~

Posted:"Immortality"Do not stand at my grave and weep.I am not there. I do not sleep...I am a thousand wings that blowI am a diamond glint in the snowI am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the autumn rain.When you awake in the morning hush.I am the swift uplifting rushOf quiet birds in circling flight I am the soft star shine at night...Do not stand at my grave and cry...I am not there. I did not die.~A

Posted:Thanks again guys..just to keep you updated, we had a HUGE party for him down at the park on friday night.. drummers, firespinners, singing laughing dancing, speaking, living.I even rented a generator, called up my buddy DJ cassiel, and he brought down his turntables and mixer. I brought my home stereo and speakers and we pounded out the trance all night.. (very illegal, but the cops left us alone, I think they understood)I'm sure will was watching and loving it. and his death does have some positive aspects, it brought us all closer together!And I am teaching his sister to spin fire, I am happy about that, she is very much like him, and I am honored to have the chance to teach her the art her brother was so passionate about.anyway, thanks for the support people, I need it right now..------------------~whoosh whoosh whoosh~
