(Author’s note: I will be moving soon. The house I’m in will be sold, and I’ll be moving to another place in another part of town. It’ll be nice, a little closer to work, a little closer to everything. It’ll also be more stable, which means I’ll be able to do more, such as working on this script that I’ve put off for nearly 3 years. Here’s to hoping it works! Anyhow, here’s today’s fictioneers)
It’s In The Way That You Use It
by Miles H. Rost
We took the train down to Southern California. It was one of the last rides I would take with my grandpa.
“Sonny, I want you to have something.”
I looked up at him, and smiled. He gave me a photo.
“When I leave, I want you to look at this. Especially when you feel down.”
“But Grandpa, you’ll always be around.”
“Not always, Sonny.”
“If I have this picture, you’ll always be there.”
He just smiled.
That was 20 years ago. He died shortly after that. But I always have him with me, on the neck of my guitar on stage.
A touching story, a really great way to carry his memories with him.
Very much so. It’s always good to have love close to your heart! Thanks for reading!
I love that he keeps his grandfather close by while he’s enjoying an activity that means so much to him. Great song choice too, BTW.
Thanks! I love the fact that Clapton and Gary Brooker both did good work on this. And Laurence Cottle’s bass…to DIE for! Thanks for reading and listening!
Thanks for reading! Tender is always a good word to use.

Thanks, Keith! 😀
Touching story. Grandpa will always be there in the memory and of course in his photograph.
Always and forever. Photos are always good to have close to your heart! Thanks for reading!
Love this one. Touching and sentimental.
Thanks! It’s an honor to write these, even if I am very late in getting back to the comments (life really happened for me.)
He is there to comfort you, and you are showing him so many sights he never had the chance to see when he was here from the stage. Excellent piece.
The subject of this story love it! Thanks for stopping by and reading!
