The Great Baron Ectar


He was the self-proclaimed Professor of All that is Unnecessary, but his life and his words prove that he was a professor of all that is necessary... loving, learning, coping, trusting, trying, beleiving, nurturing, laughing and more.

Baron Ectar.
44 years old.
At peace with his spiritual room.

Prayers & warm wishes of unconditional love & healing to his family.

Tears of thankfullness to you Baron, for touching me in the many ways that you did. Your words have always made an impact on me & will only continue to do so, perhaps in ways unimaginable and unintended.
Always an angel, now he has wings...

Matt said...

I'm hoping it's quite a while before this happens on Animal Mind.

Cheers.

Angela Marie said...

I have been blog hopping trying to understand what has happened.

Forgive me.... Paige? Can you shed some light for me. Did Baron pass away? What happened?

skinnylittleblonde said...

ILTV~ His words are very powerful indeed.

Singleton~ A circle of love always expands to draw us in & contracts to hold us close.

Matt~ me too.

Angela Marie~ Forgive me. I just found out today. Yes, Dear Baron passed last week... I understand via the blog world that he passed peacefully in his sleep from an aneurysm.

His words are gifts to all of us. In his life and in his passing, he has left a wonderful mark upon all that he touched. In his sudden passing, we should be reminded to allow ourselves inner-peace with who we are and where we are despite what others may choose for us...that unconditional love comes from within ... that life, as we know it, can be fleeting and that we should always value each moment by being true to ourselves, thus making us true to one another.

Skinny,this is a shock to me. I had no idea till today.This is such a sad news.I never knew him personally yes but he did touch all our lives in this virtual world deeply. I couldn't hold back tears as I read this news.He was indeed an angel.I am lost for words right now...

Anne said...

I'm sorry, I didn't know how to tell you sooner. I didn't want to blurt it out in your comments. He was very special and touched many hearts. I'm sure he's at peace.

Angela Marie said...

Oh Paige! This is so sad! I have tears flowing...

I always looked forward to his comments on yours and singletons blog. I would read his blog but never found the courage to comment. Why didn't I comment? Stupid!

I found him to be a wonderful man! He lived life and shared through his experiences.

He has definately left a mark on me. As you said and will continue to do so. Unimaginable and unintended. Now an angel with wings.

:(

vicci said...

Oh Paige...Oh my ....I am beside myself...words can't express how I feel...I want to hold your hand right at this very minute...

skinnylittleblonde said...

Fuzzy~ I didn't know either. Words really cannot wrap around this man and the wonder he made.

Anne~ I couldn't agree with you more in that he found peace. You are right about his blog too. It reads like a book of learning, living & loving. We are so fortunate to have known him. My email is my moniker at hotmail dot com should you ever want to email me (I don't know how to get it to work on profile page)

Angela Marie~ I know that there were many souls who read his blog and did not comment, you are not alone. Don't kick yourself. The beauty of blogging is that we CAN do that. I loved his blog because he helped me to learn about myself as he learned about himself.

Vicci~ Words are very hard indeed & in virtuality, we are all holding our hands in a circle of love that he has drawn around all of us. I mourn for his children and his family, not myself. I feel grateful to have known such a well-balanced, profound, honest and still, light-hearted soul. xox

Orhan Kahn said...

Wow, I'm amazed I hadnt here of Baron sooner. What a very sad tale.

Mel said...

"So keep your candle burning
Make a journey bright and pure
That you'll keep returning always and evermore

Into my arms oh Lord
Into my arms oh Lord
Into my arms oh Lord
Into my arms"

His soul soars.

(((((((((SLB))))))))))
*prayers and healing thoughts*

skinnylittleblonde said...

Orhan~ :) Sometimes all the circles of love overlap to form one larger circle of love...like links in the chain. I encourage you to read through his blog, at his recent four rooms, and learn about yourself as you learn about him.P&L Orhan

Mel~ TY. I love your words. Today I travel to meet my sister Singleton at my brothers' in south Georgia. I'll carry with me a special candle & tonight she & I will burn in it loving prayers & well-wishes for his surviving children & family.

This post is devotional to Baron and all that he stood for, all that he beleived, all that he learned & all that he taught us. As we learn about each other, here in the blog world, we learn about ourselves. I learned & re-learned many things from Baron & although his body has perished, his words & spirit live long & strong. As so profoundly mentioned time and again, he found peace in his Final Room, his Spiritual Room, which perhaps is the First Room in the House of the Holy.
Peace & Love to Baron, his children and his family in their healing time.

mindy said...

Nithya N said...

how come so suddenly??? death makes me so uncomfortable i don't even want to ackowledge its existence so i'm at a loss for ords..i only hope he livd his short life the way he wanted to.

Enemy of the Republic said...

God bless him and you too. You are brave. I knew in my post, but I couldn't bring myself to say his name.

skinnylittleblonde said...

Mindy & Nithya N~ I beleive he passed peacefully in his sleep from an aneurysm.

enemy~ When I read your post, I had no idea...but had been missing his presence profoundly. Years ago, my mother told me what she knew of angels...she said that we all need them. We need them in all shapes, sizes and forms. This is why some folks leave our presence at times that seem unfair in our physical world. We need baby wings, aged & wise wings, and wings like Barons' as well... strong, young, powerful yet light & open. P&L to you too Enemy.

Marty Jo said...

I'm Barons' younger sister and wanted to say thank you for all your kind words.

skinnylittleblonde said...

Marty jo ~ Thank you! I know that brothers and sisters help to make us who we are in ways so profound that it is hard to describe. We bounce off of one another growing up as we define ourselves. Last night me and my eldest sister, Singleton, met at one of our brothers' house for a friendly brotherly/sisterly pow-wow. We burned a white candle and prayed for all of Baron's loved ones. Looking, talking & laughing with them last night...I could see slivers of myself, here and there...dancing in & out of our conversations & experiences. I know your brother to a wonderful person and know that this in some aspects is also a reflection of us. My strongest wishes are with you ... his family, and most especially his beautiful children. May his love continue to grow ... through his words, his life, his legacies, his impact upon all of us and through everyone we pass these wisdoms onto. (((peace & love to you marty jo.)))

SpongyBones said...

Thanks for this. I miss him to everyday.

skinnylittleblonde said...

I know you do Chad. He, and you, have been on my mind lately...as you often are. Through your missing him and remembering him and talking about him, even to him ... you are keeping his spirit, his life, his time here ever-living.
Spongy...life is so weird. My grandmother passed away in '94. My neices were born in 84, 86 and 87. Two of my nieces have baby girls, one who is four & the other who is one. Some of my nieces have very faint memories of my grnadmother & their children obviously have none. However, I will catch Little Alana (four) doing something, saying something, professing something ... which takes me back to Nana. It comes from her. It was passed down, around & deep inside from Nana to all of us...some of which never lived in the time to physically know her. To me, it is evidence of how love grows, long after the body stops.
Each day goes quicker than the day before as we grow older & some pains will never be far from our hearts. But, likewise with the love & the trust & the convictions that we hold near & dear. Your missing of your brother is a reminder of how blessed you, and everyone who knew him, was blessed and a reminder of how much he,too, was blessed.
You may not be able to plop down on the sofa next to your brother or pick up the phone and call him, but I believe he is always there in thought & spirit. And I beleive he sends you signs and gifts & tokens and sometimes these are in the form of memories, twangs of the heart, sometimes an awareness of a smell forgotten or newly discovered or a little bird that seems to whistle extra loud or a jingle of the keys... to remind you that love grows & that although he was physically taken from this physical world far too young, he was ready, he was at peace & he's all good... knowing that you and everyone else he loved are learning, loving & living as fully and as honestly as you can. (((peace&love to you, my dear)))
