At Rest I just found this series of pictures of Paolo Schmidlin’s painted bronze sculpture of Marilyn Monroe. It’s called “At Rest” and is a representation of her in her coffin in her favorite Pucci dress. It’s so beautiful, I’d love to see it in person.
I love thinking about that there's still so much of River we haven't seen. There's probably a lot more pictures of him, that will never get released, interviews that we'll never see...etc. Of course it would be great to see them but I also think that River's family and friends should have some personal things left about him. There's so much stuff out there that shouldn't even exist, for example that picture of him in the casket. It's hard to explain but I like thinking about it :)…
This may seem harsh its difficult to see the pictures of River in his casket, he just looks out of character from how he usually is, to see his short dyed black hair it just wasn't him.He didn't look peaceful. Why? I question myself, Why? do so many people resort to drugs? why must they feel the need to drown themselves in the addiction? How would our lives be different if that one Halloween night he didn't take those drugs? If his kind hearted, fragile heart didn't stop beating? I miss him.
