    NOW WE ARE IN APRIL, 2011. I STILL MISS TODD WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL, BUT HE WILL ALWAYS INSPIRE ME:


    Only Yesterday
    by Joseph L Gilliam on Sunday, April 24, 2011 at 9:36am
    While standing in the sand and fog,
    still fresh in my senses,
    as though it were only yesterday,

    The visions of the wetsuit
    filled by that of a young boy sailing...
    upon the ocean waves with his resin toy
    strapped to one leg, gliding seamlessly
    along the fountains of water
    With the bubbling whitecaps following
    in your wake!

    Magnificent! A deep, astonished breath...
    I take,

    As I am in admiration of the flawless wonder,
    and hence, you did not see me there

    Amazed at nature's beauty...
    with you on top of it all!

    And it was only yesterday.

    I wish that you were still there upon the morrow!



    All My Love,

    Joseph (P.J.) L. Gilliam

    For Todd And My Bailey Grace:
    May Your Baby Girl See The Joy
    And Wonderment Of The
    World As You Did,
    My Brother!

    I often know that my late mother would have loved a given movie or restaurant or article. It often makes things bitter sweet.

    That was beautiful...heart warming. You will always miss him. My best friend died 6 years ago...I will always miss him. And that's ok. It does become less painful over time in that it hurts less often when I think of him. At 2 years, I did not believe that....but it does.

    Wonderful memories. Thank you for sharing.
