God, grant me the strength of eagles wings,
the faith and courage to fly to new heights,
and the wisdom to rely on his spirit to carry me there

Per Sooze Billy was rested and peaceful overnight. Is hanging in there as the process continues.

A sad moment to tune in again to ST again after my recent trans Pacific move and travels. So much love from so many friends! Although I never met Blitzo, his story has touched me as it has so many. Again, thanks to all who have been helping in so many different ways.

May his final transition from this dimension, be peaceful and above all, painless.

This thread and community support for one of their own is golden. I never met Blitzo but I have admired his photography for years. He really took some remarkable images, photos that require a certain mastery, passion and dedication to produce. He rubbed elbows with many of the greats, Harding, Bachar, Dano to name a few. Can't imagine the stories he must have living the life for all these years. I know what it's like to lose a good friend, most of us do. The hurt does linger for awhile, but we are left with memories and we take our friends wherever we go. Though, it just doesn't seem right when someone with such a connection with the wild places has to exit in a freaking hospital bed, with the grace and loving support of a lifetime of so many friendships it doesn't matter. Peace to you Blitzo thanks for inspiration!

nita and I were thinking of Blitzo last night watching shooting stars and making wishes last night in the Lassen parking lot.
I snapped this this morning and though it doesn't compare to Billy's photo expertise, offer it up with my wish that he can make the transition and break free of this mortal life with knowing that he is loved and will not be forgotten.
With love
