If Gary could make a call from a phone booth somewhere up there in the beyond, he’d be giving us one of his famous pep talks, 101. Today is the anniversary of his fourth year of his passing. His lecture would be thoughtful and (maybe having heard it before) we would listen to him with a little wry smile knowing that he was right again and that also he really cared about us. Or he would just be championing our progress. We owe him, so here is my suggestion.
Gary loved taking photos. He had an eye for this gorgeous world. Some days now, I stop and look around and then channel the view to him. He so loved clouds, and mountains, flowers and great blue herons. Whether it is realistic or not that I could send him a mental photo is of really no consequence. It doesn’t matter. The images feel like blessings, that can be tossed into the universe, heading them into the general direction, where I imagine him to be. Express delivery.
This day, nay this week, send him a photo. Send him a postcard view of this world that he loved. Just send it. Send selfies and images of cool cars, flowers and humorous signs. Clouds. If he can receive them, he’ll know you're thinking of him. Address them to “Beloved Gary, Abha Kingdom." Bless him.

Now get busy; send images. Here is another one from him to you.
