Never underestimate my ability to come up with wacky ideas, including  asking my son to record my being an empathically listening therapist in the gazebo pictured above.

Never underestimate the time it takes to publish something like that to YouTube. Never underestimate how hard I’ll try to get that linked to this post.

Never underestimate the power of music, as shown in this YouTube video:

Never underestimate the depth of my gratitude to all who help me write these daily blogs and — of course! — to YOU.

  1. I will attempt to estimate things correctly today, Ann.

  2. never underestimate the power of your posts – they reach so. many in so many different ways

  3. You are important Ann 😀

  4. Never underestimate the power of music, or words!

  5. I could watch that video until the cows come home. Better yet I’ll watch the cows until the video comes home. That’s proof that my willingness to steal jokes from Groucho Marx should never be underestimated. I figure if I’m going to steal I should steal from the best which, I believe, is something Tom Lehrer said.

  6. I prefer to overestimate better to have too much then not enough

  7. I never underestimate Michael’s dinners

  8. Maureen

    Everybody would benefit from a visit with an empathically listening therapist in a gazebo! Will we be able to share in this experience via Youtube thanks to Aaron?

    • Never underestimate technology’s ability to flummox me! I’ve tried to post that video to YouTube three times with no luck. I may have to wait until Aaron gets home from teaching English in Jordan in a few weeks.

      I always benefit from your visits here, Maureen.

  9. Never underestimate the power of two Shakespearean cats.
