Day 1142: All you need

All you need to know about today’s title is that I saw it in a supermarket last night.


Is that all you need?  I need more, including  an explanation of why and how Lane Ground Biscuits are all I need.

Writing my blog post each day is all I need to get going every morning.

Many people believe that all you need is right there, in every present moment.

When I go into a room at the Philadelphia Convention Center on February 21, with many other people, to try out for “The Voice,” all I need is this:

When I’m breathing in to sing, I will remember to take in all I need from the universe, including the good wishes of my family, friends, and readers.

All I need, now, is to see if the  photos I took yesterday are all we need, for this blog post.











All I need, in order to finish packing for my train trip on Thursday, is to get Oscar off my suitcase.

What is all you need, in the present moment?

All I need to end this post is to thank all of those who helped me write it and all of you, no matter what your needs are.

  1. I am sending good thoughts your way, Ann. I’m so excited for you.

    Also, the “forget the past,” “forget the future” poster seems like a warm fuzzy for dementia, which is very reassuring.

  2. I second that! All you need is love … and a nice glass of wine!

  3. What’s a ground biscuit?

  4. Maybe Oscar wants to go with you, for support. Are you getting nervous? or more excited about this upcoming event. I think it is so cool that you are doing something so adventurous.
    Oh, I would like to know what a ground biscuit is as well. It sounds healthy.

    • All I’ve needed, SD, is to sing in front of people around here to start to change my nervousness to excitement. Your comments help reduce my nervousness, too!

  5. I always have trouble distinguishing between what I need and what I simply want. I think I need one of those biscuits but I may simply want it. On the other hand I know I need to rephrase an old joke: when is a biscuit not a biscuit?
    When it’s ground.

  6. Oscar doesn’t want you to leave. I had a sweet dog that I used to hide my luggage from…he’d start pacing nervously as soon as I took it from the closet. ❤️

  7. Derrick has it right with his comment ~ one of my all-time favorite songs/video, it is all we need. However, your words run a close second as I think all we need is right here, in every present moment ~ wish you a great week and hope one day will be able to hear you sing ~ you have all my best wishes flowing your way. Cheers!

  8. Ann, If we take the lyrics in the Beatles song: “All you need is love.”

  9. Carol Ferenc

    Most days all I need is more time ~ and I’m retired. Go figure!
    I think Oscar is going to miss you while you’re gone.

  10. All I need is the air that I breath!

  11. I think you need to be yourself and very comfortable as if you are at home.

  12. Package quick fix foods!!! No, we don’t need that.
