Memorial Day

Since Monday is Memorial Day, I'll be keeping the candles burning brightly all weekend.  It's my way of paying my respects, not only to our fallen soldiers but also, to all who have ever served,
like Steven Keats
"Never forget, Ever honor"

Tributing our soldiers & veterans, not war

Something for Steven

Embers of you

your campfire once was burning
so beautifully high and bright
and everyone was gathered around your flames
to feel your warmth, your love and light

many years later when i arrived
i found your fire had long died down
i had missed you completely, and so i started to cry
because you were no longer around

i was sitting alone by your campfire circle
when i felt a warmth rising up from the ground
i saw crackling wood chips that were still all aglow
in orangey-reds, yellows and browns

i may have missed your campfire
but there's still the loveliest afterglow
these embers of you are eternally burning
and everyone's love for you makes them grow

Kool Keats Kuote

"Nobody told Kirk Douglas to fill in the dimple on his chin, so why should they tell me to fill in the gap between my two front teeth?

This coming week, on May 8th, it will be nineteen years since Steven has been gone.  I just wanted to re-share a quote I posted here long ago because it makes me think of him.  It's from a book by Ruth Fishel called, 'Hang in Til the Miracle Happens'.  She dedicates the book to her late son with these heartfelt words:

"To my dear, loving, generous and much talented son, Bob Fishel (1963-1992) who could not wait for the next miracle. May your pain be transformed into healing energy for all of those who still suffer on this earth."

I'd also like to share a link to a book called:  Truth be Told:  A Memoir on Success, Suicide & Survival....

And to Steven, 
You are really missed and loved by your fans.  I hope the future brings more out on you - articles, a documentary-biography,  interviews,  rare photos,  performance footage & perhaps even a book. Then you will be truly memorialized - you deserve it!  May God bless you and all who love you.

I'll end here with a song on Hollywood called Celluloid Heroes:
