Very sad news regarding DUer Alarcojon.
Alarcojon passed away early this morning after a long, tough battle with leukemia. I know he had a great many friends on DU who will be saddened by this news. We are all devastated here; for awhile the prognosis seemed good, but complications resulting from the treatment became quite severe in the last month or so. May his spirit (mountain-sized, lion-hearted) journey quickly and safely to the next life; may the next life be brighter and happier than this one. Adios, Alarcojon. You will be missed.

The passing of any life is sad be it DEM or REP..Death knows no political affiliations unless in war.

106. one of his later lounge posts
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Not much after that. Maybe he did not want to share bad news, or was not healthy enough to post. He sounded upbeat before the operation, like he had a good chance. Bummer.

47. We Are About Caring for People!
I did not know this fellow, but from what is written here I wish I had known him. Seems like my kind of person - big hearted, caring fighter for what is right. Is that not what distinguishes us from those who put profit above people, greed above all living things, power above trade, negotiation, collaboration and cooperation with our neighbors on this little planet? I am proud to be associated with people who care such as you people here. Alarcojon's spirit will truly live on to inspire us to keep fighting for a better world for all living beings. I did not know him but his spirit has already touched me. So he does live one in us and what we do. What a legacy.

76. I am proud to have called this man my friend.
alarcojon was a regular in the Lounge's DU Nighthawks threads before he became sick. I send love and light to Mrs. alarcojon and to the many students whose hearts and minds were touched by this amazing human being.

:kick:ed and recommended for alarcojon.

79. Oh shit.
I remember when he was looking for a marrow donor and then had found one. I was so hopeful for him when I read that :(

I am so sorry to hear about this -- DU sure loses the good ones.

Via con dios, Alarcojon.

89. RIP, Alarcojon. You will be missed.!
I corresponded with him before his bone marrow transplant. He went in to it with a very positive attitude. He was a gentle soul.

I had planned to go in and see him (if the health care team approved) since he was being treated here, but then my own mom was diagnosed with cancer and my attention span narrowed for everything else.

176. This is so hard to hear. It seemed as if he just might be able to return
to health not so very long ago when he wrote he had gone home from the hospital.

It seemed at the forefront of his mind was his gratitude for his wife's help during his illness.

It was always meaningful to read his posts on Democratic issues. He surely had his values in the right place.

It's hard to think of a future without his voice here. He gave the D.U. a fine foundation long ago. He'll really be missed.

Hope his family will find comfort, and make it out of this painful time.

177. Rest in Peace Alarcojon. My condolences to your family. It's brutal
to lose a loved one. My dad died of leukemia last month. He was diagnosed with it on Thursday and he was gone by early Wednesday the following week with no treatment.

212. From his words I knew he was a caring, loving, intelligent...
...individual who helped us push back the evil. For that I am thankful and grateful.

  His light joins with a constellation of others who have come before us and, nomatter how dark the night, pushes back the darkness (as he did in life) a little more.

and told him he HAD to live because my husband died of a similar condition, and the Universe needs to balance things out. It doesn't seem to have worked that way.

Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were,
as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were
any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind
and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls
it tolls for thee.

:cry:

All peace to you, Alarcojon.

270. Prayer
Edited on Tue Sep-26-06 09:16 PM by MoseyWalker
from one who questions.
Not my words:
Prayer

I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the sweet uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still in each new dawn.

292. Alarcojon was a wonderful bright light here on DU for me
I knew he was ill and am crying as I read this thread. I don't get around to DU as much as I'd like to these days, but a friend told me the news and gave me a link to this thread.

My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out tonight to his loved ones. I had so many great exchanges with him, in the forums and via PM over the years. He was a wonderful part of this community and I can only imagine how he must have touched the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know him in real life.

295. Scala Coeli
We do not see them come
Their great wings furled, their boundless forms infolded
Smaller than poppy seed or grain of corn,
To enter the dimensions of our world
In time to unfold what in eternity they are,
Each a great sun, but dwindled to a star
By the distances they have travelled.

Higher than cupola their bright ingress;
Presences vaster than the vault of night,
Incorporeal mental spaces infinite,
Diminished to a point and to a moment bought.
Through the everywhere and nowhere invisible door
By the many ways they know,
The thoughts of wisdom pass;
In seed that drifts in air or on the waters' flow,
They come to us down ages long as dreams
Or instantaneous as delight.

As from seed tree, flower, and fruit
Grow and fade like a dissolving cloud,
Or as the impress of the wind
Makes waves and ripples spread,
The move unseen across our times and spaces.
We try to hold them, trace on walls
Of cave, cave-temple or monastic cell their shadows cast:
Animal-forms, warriors, dancers, winged angels, words of power
On precious leaves inscribed in gold and lapis lazuli,
Or arabesques in likeness of the ever-flowing.
They show us gardens of Paradise, holy mountains
Where water of life springs from rock or lion's mouth,
Walk with us unseen, put into our hands emblems,
An ear of corn, pine cone, lotus, looking glass or chalice;
As dolphin, peacock, hare or moth or serpent show themselves,
Or human-formed: a veiled bride, a boy bearing a torch,
Shrouded or robed or crowned, four faced,
Sounding lyre or sistrum, or crying in bird-voices.

Water and dust and light
Reflect their images as they slowly come and swiftly pass.

We do not see them go
From visible to invisible like gossamer in the sun;
Bodies by spirit raised
Fall as dust to dust when the wind drops,
Moth-wing chrysalis.
Those who live us and outlive us do not stay
But leave their empty semblances, icons, bodies
Of long-enduring gold or the fleet golden flower
On which the Buddha smiled.
In vain we look for them where others found them,
For by the vanishing stair of time immortals are forever departing;
But whiles we gaze after the receding vision
Others are already descending through gates of ivory and horn.

Kathleen Raine

rest & peace Alarcojon

Alarcojon's family is greatly comforted by the posts here. Thank you so much. His mother, wife and other relatives are comforted by the kind words and wishes.

Please use the email address Alarcojon@yahoo.com . Please do not call the blackberry right now. I'm not sure how much longer the blackberry will be activated.

I am a friend of Alarcojon and his wife. If you have questions, please leave them at the above email.

Alarcojon was always after me to come here. How ironic it took his death to finally get me to do it.

349. Walk in Beauty
Walk in Beauty

I offer a Navajo Prayer

In beauty, may I walk.
All day long, may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.

Beauty will I possess again.
Beautiful birds...
Beautiful joyful birds...

On the trail marked with pollen, may I walk.
With grasshoppers about my feet, may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.

With beauty, may I walk.
With beauty before me, may I walk.
With beauty behind me, may I walk.
With beauty above me, may I walk.
With beauty all around me, may I walk.

In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty,
lively, may I walk.
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty,
living again, may I walk.

If it is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.
It is finished in beauty.

I've lost family members to leukemia. Smoogatz, you are right, he had friends and those who admired him and enjoyed reading his posts. May he now rest in peace.

:patriot:
there was some serious trying to change things.

through the decades of struggle i go from feeling it's futile, to regaining hope. from discouraging blindness and callousness from my fellow Americans, to breakthrough progress like civil rights.

then complacency, my personal continuing struggle. when i think about invisible warriors like alarcojon it inspires me. i feel like i know the truth sometimes and that gives me hope.
