Today I lost a hero and spiritual leader. Most see this familiar grin and smile thinking of the iconic J.R. Ewing. I do too, but there was so much more to this caftan-wearing, silent-on-Sundays prophetic Buddhist, environmentalist, activist, and “pied piper of life” as Linda Gray calls him. A lion of a spirit and a lamb of a heart. Larry Hagman was a man who will live on forever in JR Ewing and in my heart.

“Everyone has their own unique song, an inner melody that fuses each of us to the deep, modulating, harmonious hum of the celestial orchestra that’s the collective energy of everything that’s ever lived and ever going to live. It’s our life force. The power of the universe.” -Larry Hagman
