Day 1980: Now what?

Now, what happens when you accomplish something?  Do you ever ask yourself, “Now what?”

Now what should I do after performing my first original song at an Open Mic? Now what can I do to top that? Now what makes me think I have to top that?

Now what gets in the way of my being here, now, and enjoying all the now has to offer?

Now what photos do I have to show you?


Now what do you do during busy times? Now what do you think I was doing when I took that photo?


Now what wants to be chosen, heard, stuffed, stitched, fluffed, dressed, named, and taken home?


Now what are we fighting about if we are all human?



Now what helps you stay cool? Now what is a museum of ice cream?


Now what kind of person would wear that t-shirt? Now what kind of roll is that?


Now what music does that Meowsic make?

Now what video could I possibly include here?

Meow what video could top that?

Now what are you going to say in a comment?

Now what should I end with, except gratitude for the now, the meows, and YOU?

  1. I don’t think you have to do anything to top singing your own song at an open mike because you top everything by just being here with us, non-judgmentally (or not), every day.

  2. Now what can I say, you’re the best Ann I know, 😆

  3. Good question, Ann. I’ll be eager to hear your answer. My accomplishment isn’t even complete and I’m already asking myself this.

  4. Take a deep breath. Smile inside and out. Measure the greats and the not-as. Start writing the second song? My little suggestion, Ann.

  5. I just went back to look at your song performance and what a hoot it was! I could sing that song! I know just what might have driven you to write it! And you got such a nice reception for your lovely performance.

  6. Just this morning I watched a short profile of the artist Jean Dubuffet who was constantly trying new things. Every time something he tried became accepted he’d move on to something else.
    I don’t think you have to top what you’ve accomplished already but I look forward to what new challenges you’ll pursue.

  7. You’re pretty great too!

  8. Now what????????????
    Oh hang on I have only been out of bed for 40 minutes
    But Ii am feeling so tired

  9. When you do something that tops the list, no matter what it is, you can’t top it, so all you need to do is shift your focus. It opens another whole way to get to the top!

  10. How bizarre that they choir boys are singing meow. I don’t even know what to say about that.

  11. wonderful sharing church
    of the felines!
    have a meow day 🙂
