I wonder if this post will change your mood, or mine?
Here’s something that changed my mood yesterday, at Tufts Medical Center.
It was not that sign that changed my mood. What changed my mood was Bob —
the great guy who has been checking my pacemakers for many years — and Dr. Mark Estes (not pictured), telling me that everything is good with my new Implantable Cardiac Device.
Here is some dialog, from yesterday, that changed my mood:
Dr. Estes: Ann, you look better than you have in years.
Me: Maybe that’s because of this (gesturing to my new blue hair extension).
Last night, at the Coping and Healing therapy group I facilitated, the group members chose “Mood Changes” as the the topic. Here’s something I created, at that group session:
Here are some other mood changers, from yesterday:
Here are some potential mood changers, in my near future:
- Today, before noon, I will find out whether I’ve been called back for the Concord Massachusetts Players production of the Sondheim musical “Follies.”
- Tomorrow, I’ll be meeting fellow WordPresser Mark Bialczak and his lovely wife Karen.
- In August, my 17-year-old son Aaron and I (and, perhaps, my excellente ex-sister-in-law Deborah) will be attending the Festival Fringe in Edinburgh, Scotland.
- In September, I’ll be going to my 45th high school reunion.
What mood changers are in your life, today?
Here‘s a mood-changing tune:
“Mood Indigo” by Duke Ellington is changing moods on YouTube, right now.
Thanks to all things that change my mood, including the people, creatures, places, and apparel in this post. And thanks to you — of course! — no matter what mood you’re in, today.
My first mood changer was Facebook or Fakebook- something I have thought about when people tell me “love your pics you are always so happy” Well sure I am on FB- did you think I would post pics of me being grumpy before coffee or crying when I’m sad? Okay, enough sarcasm-the next mood changer this morning was seeing that t shirt that said I did not mean to offend you- I literally laughed out loud, which was a good way to start my 2nd cup of coffee this morning. That is so exciting you are meeting Mark & his lovely wife Karen! Enjoy!
