Tell you what, we could a had a good life together, a fuckin real good life. You wouldn't do it, Ennis, so what we got now is Brokeback Mountain. Everthing built on that. It's all we got, boy, fuckin all, so I hope you know that if you don't never know the rest.

march 30

“Can we ride today?”

Ennis had been prepared for the question for weeks and the answer in his mind had flip-flopped depending on how their day at the ranch was going.

“Well, I don’t know. Gotta go over some stuff remember what we talked about?”

Ben sighed and recited, “I remember: always keep my head up and watch where I’m going, listen for anything weird, pay attention to one thing at a time...”

“What’s another thing?”

“When I’m leading a horse, always walk on the left side...Granpop, I remember everything, and I’ll be careful, but if we don’t ride pretty soon I won’t wanna come up here anyway so I guess I can be safe in my bedroom.”

Maybe it was his frame of mind, maybe it was the way he heard the words out of the mouth of a six year old, maybe it just took all this time and thinking and missing...the words echoed in his mind, the sound of them fading and coming back strong again...

We could a had a good life together...

Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings! I was wondering when Ennis would finally get over his trauma and put the kid back on horseback =)

Afternoon, again.

Well, it's a two way street, love and affection. You have to give and receive. Ennis received, but wouldn't give hardly an inch. I hope he's learned his lesson, that being safe doesn't mean hiding out in your room, your little world. Keep your head up, be aware of your surroundings, listen for anything out of place... could've been a good life, a safe one.

Wonder if this echo will continue to come back strong again in the coming months of summer.

Thanks again.

It took Jack twenty years-a lifetime-to become so broken he spoke those words out loud to Ennis- Ennis won't be responsible for destroying another young life so full of hopes and dreams.

Yep those things happen hearing certain words or smelling something familiar can make us recall all of our past and past we may have forgotten. Joe
