I had the privelege of "meeting" someone very special. He was a mentor of the arts, a person who could encourage us, who could help us see our dreams as reality. He was so very special. This note from him (curteousy of
) sums up his wonderful nature, and what is happening to him.
Mine is ended. I'm dying, good bye !
Good-bye beloved Carrie, sweet Unbearable Lightness and so strong Gary, I loved you. God bless you.
Good-bye to each of you, dear artists and art lovers who gave me the strength to live a little more. I'm full of thanks. It was such a wonderful trip we did together ! God bless you.
I have the great luck to prepare myself for the last departure. And to tell you how much I loved what I did here. And you have in Univers d'Artistes more than 1700 articles. 4 years of beauty, truth and love to admire in the greatest silence. Our gift, because I wasn't alone at all ! I'll never repeat it enough.
Inevitably, the multiple sclerosis has won. My life soon will close. My body has lost all his energy, I live lied, and Time has disappeared, with all my dreams. The end is there. A question of months, or weeks, who knows ?
But, you know what ?! For a writer it's the deepest experiency to do... So wonderful. Everything is permitted ! Until the word "end" !... You must be a creator to know the plain and magical sense of this three letters word.
I agree that for the man it's another affair. The Death is very scary... Terrifying. Even if you believe in the angels ! Even if your God, and I don't care about his race or sex or color, is there to give you the hand during this so difficult rebirth. Yes. A rebirth with the same dolor of our arrival on this world. Here you guess my faith and feel my hope.
The most difficult thing to do in these strange moments is to say the last words, avoiding the regrets and the tears. I would want them so... You know like in the movies ! Some unforgettable words. But all is written in my books and diaries, and I'll keep going on sit my white cloud and using my feathers to enlight your most beautiful thoughts, like the scribe I am. For the eternity.
Have fun my friends ! Have joy and happiness, sex and pleasures, enjoy your life. She's so short !
See you soon in another world.
Chris St James
In all honesty, I feel that my world just got a whole lot smaller. I'm proud to have known him, even in the passing way that I did. I am so grateful for what he did for me, and, to be honest, I am just a little broken. In a funny way, I loved him dearly, but never set eyes on him.
Thank you Chris. Whether you believe in Karma, God, Buddah or whatever... your soul will be cared for.
Shit - I have tears streaming down my face. I'm stunned, shocked and just so very sad about this.
Love from a much saddened Duck.
