The figure standing on that rock in this picture was a little boy dancing.  He would fling his arms wide to the beauty all around him while his mom was taking videos of his joy.  He reminds me of James.  I miss his banter, imagination and truthfulness.  He tried so hard to make sense of it all and he was a lover of women and joy.  I miss his mind.

                  I wonder where he is now.  His strong spirit must surely have survived and is dancing in the wind of the cosmos.  A soul like that has to stay together and visit us.  Maybe because I am writing this he is hovering near here in Hawaii.  He would have loved the beauty here altho, like me, he probably would find a safe haven and hunker down.  He knew how to nest.

                  Online communications are important. I will be deleting Art's comments with a heavy heart.  James loved words and banter.  I am not going to keep comments in my feed that hurt my heart.  I want to see the world the way I want it to be and I try to keep some sort of order here because this little blog is my home.  James had a better heart that I do.  I miss him.

I miss him, too. Thank you for this lovely tribute to James on his birthday.

I don't like to talk about it.

Today, I have been in touch with two people who understand me and the reasons why. One by text early who has learned in the last 30 days why and another by e-mail later who has known all along.

We did not speak of this.

I don't have the need.

Love endures.

Where did you find James' birthday? I used to know how to look that up.

I recognize this spot...I think he is visiting other islanders!

I got a notice on Facebook.  Always jarring to see and in this case I just had to share as I miss him.

Thank you, I meant to do a tribute, too, but got wrapped up in not doing my homework. I miss him every day.

This is lovely.

Kosh...Fb provides b-day info to one's 'friends' and unless removed by an authorized person, a person's page endures. It can, yes, be disconcerting. Still, all considered, I appreciate the pages staying up.

That makes sense. There are still a bunch of open accounts here of people who are now deceased. However, I hope they stay because if they are pulled, those peoples' comments disappear from our old threads. James, Kim, Sirenita, Ken Sibbett, and Dorien Grey all still have accounts. 

By the way, do you guys know that Margaret is a grandmother?
