What’s my attitude about life? Depends on what’s going on around me, how I’m perceiving things, and people I depend on.
How am I feeling as I recover from my recent open heart surgery? Depends on how much sleep I’m able to get, which depends on how much pain I’m having.
How do I answer questions from myself and from others? Depends on the question, my attitude, my experience, and what I know.
How do I come up with a title and topic for each of my daily blog posts? Depends on what’s happened the day before, usually.
How do I decide which pictures to share here? Depends on which ones I think you might like.
How well do I quote other people in this blog? Depends on my memory and what they have to say. Yesterday, the dependably hilarious, brilliant, and charming Mel Brooks responded to a question from the audience as follows:
Question: Boxers or briefs?
Mel Brooks: Depends!
Will you comment on today’s blog post? That probably depends on what you have to say.
I depend on others to create every blog post and on you to read them, so many thanks to Mel Brooks, to my neighbor Karen for driving me yesterday to a realtor’s open house AND to see Mel Brooks, and to you — of course! — on whom I depend more than you know.
