Day 1988: It’s all in the details

Here’s a detail about how I got today’s title:

Do you agree that it’s all in the details?

I love these details about how to live life:

  1. Show up.
  2. Be gentle (with others and with yourself).
  3. Tell the truth.

I’m telling the truth about the details of the first verse of my second original song, “Catastrophizing.”

Now that I’ve started this song

So many things could go wrong.

What if I make a mistake?

This string or that string could break!

I think I sound out of tune.

You look like you’re leaving soon!

Here are the details of my other photos from yesterday.

Nothing says fun like this video where it’s all in the details.

It’s all in all the details for comedian Todd Barry, whom my son saw Friday night.

I noticed that some of the details in Todd Barry’s routine are about Chicago. It’s all in the details when you travel and I’m traveling to Chicago with my son in two weekends.

I’m looking forward to all the details in your comments below.

It’s all in the details when you express gratitude, so thanks to everyone who helped me create today’s detailed post and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. It’s all in the details, Harley

  2. Love your pics, especially the sunset shots. Great details

  3. Flaubert is generally considered a writer who focused on details, spending months sometimes agonizing over a single word, and yet as Julian Barnes points out in Flaubert’s Parrot Emma Bovary’s eyes change color at least four times. And yet each time her eyes were mentioned it was a detail that mattered, which just goes to show that the details should never get in the way of a good story.

  4. Love it….details and all 💛

  5. I think you may be right

  6. I couldn’t be certain if those gorgeous photos were sunrise or sunset, but those are details I don’t need! It’s a gorgeous sky over the water, and that’s enough for me! I also would like some of those invisible cards! 🙂 I am so pleased you’ll have some ‘Chicago time” with your son, Ann!

  7. I enjoyed the details of the sunset/rise photos

  8. It is very precious how you’ve melded your love of song and stand-up, Ann.

  9. “Let your word be ‘Yes, Yes’ or ‘No, No’; anything more than this comes from the evil one.” – Matthew 5:37
    The devil, as it is said, is in the details. Stay definitive Ann.
