We decide so many different things, every day. How do we decide?
Today, I decide what to include in this post.
You decide how you react to it.
I decide to show you these other photos from yesterday.
Yesterday, I decided to show my readers this amulet my friend Jeanette decided to send to me:
Later that day, I decided to sing two songs — “Sleepy Man” and “Mad World” — at the first-Friday-of-the-month Open Mic at the Kickstand Cafe in Arlington, Massachusetts, USA.
Because the 11-minute video I recorded of my performance last night (1) has no visuals, (2) includes silence before and between the numbers, (3) demonstrates my lack of proficiency with the guitar during the first song, (4) includes extraneous noises from the Kickstand kitchen staff, and (5) is much less than perfect, you decide whether I should include it in this post. (I also decide to share, here and now, that some audience members decided to tell me “You were wonderful” “You have a strong and beautiful voice.” and “I love your voice. It made me smile.”) In case you have trouble deciding what to do, I decide to tell you I have no investment in the outcome.
I decide who to thank in these posts. I hereby decide to thank all those who helped me create this and you — of course! — for deciding to read it.
