Day 1332: No judgement here!

With a blog named The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally,  I tend to notice signs of non-judgment.


No judgement here about the spelling of “judgment”; dictionaries judge that either spelling  is okay.

I’ve been working on “no judgement” here in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, Scotland.  I judge that “no judgment”  is very difficult, especially regarding myself. Judging myself (and expecting others to judge me) is second nature and very difficult to give up.  No judgement here about that;  I, a psychotherapist,  see excessive self-judgement in others all the time.

In my judgement, we self-judging people would feel much better if we practiced “no judgement” here, there, and everywhere.

Any judgement about this post so far? If  there is, no judgement here about that.  Human beings are natural judgers.  We just need to judge ourselves and others more kindly.

Any judgement here regarding my other photos from yesterday?


























No judgement here about cat cafés:


Thinking of leaving judgement in a comment?  No judgement here!

Thanks to all who helped me create this no-judgement-here post and to you — of course! — for being here, now.

  1. Christa chn

    You have a unique and particular style on the choice of your pictures, thank you for taking the time of sharing.

    • I judge your comment uniquely pleasing! Many thanks.

    • I agree w/christa. “word”.
      espesh the bewildering? array of axual people? lotsa cats? I hate children children’s show? (I should take my grandsons to THAT one!), etc. ~

  2. That “e” makes me feel very much at home although I did not expect to see it here today. It took me many responses to your posts to remember to leave it out, back when I first became a regular at The Years of Living. And now it is back! Hi, E!

  3. Lots of great titles at the Fringe. I love “This Month’s Apocalypse.”

  4. What a lovely cat-friendly post Ann 🙂
    No judgements here…

  5. My judgement is – delightful! I miss the e 😉

  6. In the midst of all the fun photos, I was certainly jolted by the one of the concrete commemorating the site of a bombing in 1916. How fortunate we are in this country that we do not know the terror of regular, ongoing bombings,
    Thank you for the reminder.

  7. I don’t want to judge but the title of No Poets’ Corner In The Abbey reminded me of former president Jimmy Carter’s visit to Westminster Abbey in 1982. He asked the guide why there was no memorial to Dylan Thomas in Poets’ Corner. The guide replied, “Is he an American poet?”
    Thanks to Carter there’s now a stone with Dylan Thomas’s name and these lines from “Fern Hill”:
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    Also I know that here I won’t be judged for suggesting that the young woman pretending to be a statue of Marie Curie would be more accurate if she were glowing.

  8. Oh, my gosh! I couldn’t figure out why there would be a box for donations by a statue of Marie Curie! Now I know. Don’t judge. I can’t imagine eating with a lot of cats trying to get at my food, but for cat people, that cafe looks loads of fun. I also like the idea of a kick ass hotel. It looks like you must be having a fabulous time!

  9. As you may know I don’t judge others except when I am sitting people watching and say to myself what the hell who would wear that or don’t they own a mirror but those are thoughts not said aloud

  10. Where in the world were/are you? What amazing pics! No, really! What a cornicopia of people and cats and posters — all in one place. I was thinking about you yesterday — how you always have such great images. I was looking around at my own world and, although the sights are not as bizarrely wonderful as yours, there are plenty of unique things around me, too. Thank you for the inspiration!
