Day 2555: What is this place?

What is this place?  It’s The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally on WordPress, a place where I started blogging daily seven years ago. It’s a place I try to make special and safe.

It’s a place where I share stories and photos of places I’ve been.



























What is this place? It’s a place where

  • all creatures are welcome (no matter what they do or say),
  • I create things (including  songs about Ferrero Rocher), and
  • I share my thoughts and feelings, hoping that also helps you in some way.


This is the place for me to say this: before you step into 2020, be sure to cancel  your subscriptions to other people’s drama and negativity, but please do not cancel your subscription to The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.

I found “What Is This Place” playing in place on YouTube.

As always, there’s a place for you and your comments here.

What is this place?  It’s a place for gratitude, every day.

  1. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place, Happy New Year Ann!!!πŸŽ†πŸ₯‚

  2. This is a marvelous safe place, Ann.

  3. here’s to your 7 and at least 77 more for good measure –

  4. It is a place of connection and refuge, humour and courage, and also cats and shores.

    I would be interested in your thoughts on what “living non-judgmentally” means to you these days, Ann, and whether your thoughts about that have changed over time.

    • Thank you for all the thought-provoking questions you ask in this place, Maureen. Living non-judgmentally has always felt like an ultimately unattainable but supremely worthy goal to me. My judgment is that I’ve done my best to improve over the years and I make progress, day by day, with the help of supportive readers like you. I appreciate the connection with you more than I can say. πŸ’•

  5. I’m with HYMN!

  6. This is a place where you now have a Hubbie, and Harley and Hubbie start with an H.

  7. This place is a great blog!

  8. This is a great place with great people and I’ll be renewing my subscription. And I’d also like to share something else, which this place reminded me of–a few lines from a poem by Brenda Hillman.

    That the soul got to choose. Nothing else
    got to but the soul
    got to choose.
    That it was very clever, stepping
    from Lightworld to lightworld
    as an egret fishes through its smeared reflections β€”

    through its deaths β€”
    for it believed in the one life,
    that it would last forever.

  9. This place use to be good for inspiration, free of judgements and filled with kindness, Ann πŸ˜€
    Wish you, Hubby and the beauties a Happy New Year.

  10. A good place to stop by, that’s for sure!

    I think this place is called home. Wow! I can’t believe Valentine ‘s Day items are already “exposed”- it’s not even New Year’s Eve. Have a nice day, Ann

  12. What place is this? It is my home but that isn’t what you mean, or is it……………….

  13. I always enjoy visiting your place, and I’m very interested in your wonderful meals. Sincerely healthful and delicious! πŸ™‚ And I am already conducting a personal inventory and committed to cutting loose any identified negativity. Thank you!!

  14. Always a thoughtful, happy place! Happy New Year, Ann!

  15. Michael has upped his culinary game since the wedding.
