Day 2314: Look at me!

Look at me, writing a second blog post titled “Look at me!” almost exactly two thousand and two hundred days after the first one.  (Who’s counting?  Look at me!)

Look at me, sharing what I drew in a therapy group yesterday, when the topic chosen by the group was “children.”

Look at me, seeing my wonderful dentist for the first time since his double lung transplant eight months ago.

For the first few years of this blog, I didn’t let anybody look at me!

Look at me, sharing all my other photos from yesterday.

Look at Harley, letting me look at him without running away.

When I searched YouTube for “Look at Me”, I found this ear-splitting, dubbed video of a 7 year old allegedly rapping the late  XXXTentacion’s “Look at Me!” on America’s Got Talent.

Look at me, warning you not to watch that unless you lower the sound before you get to the dubbed rapping.  Here‘s  7-year-old Mir Money‘s actual performance on the show:

Look at Howard Stern hugging Mir Money after he made him cry.

Look at XXXTentacion performing “Look at Me!” live in 2017, almost exactly a year before he was murdered at age 20.

Look at me, looking forward to looking at all your comments about this “Look at Me!” post and also thanking all who helped me create it.

    Look at me!!! I’m in your blog!!!
    Awesome!

  2. I love looking at you and all of the wonderful people you share. 🙂

  3. LŐŐk at me! I’m smiling back at you.(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)

  4. Two good sets of choppers

  5. Yesterday I watched part of a documentary on Mel Brooks. Just looking at Mel Brooks makes me laugh, but I especially enjoyed a story he told about serving in World War II. One night when he was close to the front he overheard some German soldiers singing. He sang a song loudly and when he finished the Germans applauded. “I could have ended the war right then,” he said. It’s funny but also true–if only more people had listened.

    • Mel Brooks often talks about how much he’s loved performing and people looking at him since he was a small child. He’s one of my heroes, Chris, and so are you.

  6. Your dentist looks pretty good for a guy who had a double lung transplant. And those cats–so cute!

  7. Janis Moulton

    This has nothing to do with anything relevant but looking at the pic of you and your dentist reminds me how much I love your hair these days.

  8. Looking at you and your dentist. You both look GREAT!

  9. Look at you and your lucky dentist. I have to visit mine on Monday.

  10. I’m looking at two beautifully smiling faces, and thinking that you both encourage each other in light of very difficult medical journeys. My daughter was a nurse on the transplant floor at UCLA for many years, and she always talked about how the lung transplant patients had the most difficult recovery periods. Very painful. I’m so glad your dentist has done well and can return to his vocation–and life! Your big smiles make me smile in return. xx

    • I’m looking at a beautifully smiling face next to your comment, Debra, and thinking about how encouraging you’ve been to me over the years. xxoo

  11. I am so happy to see your dentist looking so happy, and you looking happy too.

  12. Look at how cute Harley is when he’s all curled up.
