We spoke but did not meet. He gave me much, unstintingly.

His legacy to me is that I must write.

As I said before he made the world a better place with his poetry and by his being.

I didn't know Tim either, except from here. What Mark said is so lovely that I'll just say, 'What Mark said.'

For those who didn't know Tim, Wendy V posted this on her blog, and I'll pass it on here.

it is in voices . . . that the dead continue to live.

Was this news just posted, or did I somehow miss it? I am heartbroken. Tim was one of my favoirte living poets. I corresponded with him for a while around 2000. This is so incredibly sad. A person with such talent should never die.

Thanks for posting that video, Dink. Just started watching it. Prairie Pulse - couldn't be more conservative - and yet less than a minute into it, he's talking about "my sexual orientation, which is gay." I loved him for being so open and strong. Ave atque vale, brother.

So sorry to hear of Tim's passing. I'm glad he continued to receive the love and support of the Sphere in his last days. Thank you, Jenny, Cathy, and Father Rob.

It seems to me that there can never be art without religion. I dont mean that every musician and dancer and writer and weaver and potter has to be Christian or Buddhist or Muslim, but unless there is some awe and wonderment at the things that occur under the sun, little of value will be done, however much it is praised in the galleries and the reviews.
xFor the artist and for all men and women to wonder is to praise.
xDH Lawrence sat at his writing table and waited for the flame of God to take possession of him.
xIt takes patience. It requires, sometimes, a little courage; especially at a time when it is not fashionable to mention the divine in connection with art.

[I think it's important to get this right, so I'm going to put some more time and thought into it.]

The vigil is tomorrow at Sts. Anne and Joachim in South Fargo, with the Funeral at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. If you would like to read Tim's obituary, it can be found here:

Father Rob will be at the funeral.
