Day 2803: It’s for you

It’s for you that I write these blog posts. But it’s also for me. As I encounter so many ups and downs in life, blogging every morning strengthens me for the day ahead.

It’s for you that I share today’s music, by Pat Metheny and the late Lyle Mays.

At the same time, sharing “It’s For You” from As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls is for me.

It’s for you that I’m trying out a new, unfamiliar-to-me editor as I blog today. But it’s also for me (to increase my confidence about using new technology as I prepare to host my 50th high school reunion on Zoom).

It’s for you that I captured all these images, but it’s also for me.

It’s for you and for me that I realize that “It’s for you” would make a good caption for this:

It’s for you that I have a comments section but it’s also for me.

It’s for you and for me that I collect images of gratitude to end these posts.

I’m grateful that writing this post with the new editor was much easier than I expected! This reminds me of the helpful cognition I’m working on in EMDR therapy:

I can trust myself, which allows me to figure out who else to trust.

Thanks to Pat, Lyle, Harley, Michael (for the burritos), the South Shore of Boston, our neighborhood church, our neighbors, snowy and not-so-snowy egrets, WordPress, and YOU.

  1. Cheers to you for mastering the new editor, Ann. I have yet to take the plunge …

    • Thank you for trying out the new editor. What is the editor called? I like the way the photos displayed on my Android phone, they were easier to see than usual. I hope you have a really good vacation day. Suggested location: near your phone.

    • I have been avoiding the new WordPress editor — which I think is called “the block editor” — for months. It’s a lot more intuitive than I expected and I can see many improvements over the old way of creating a post. This comment is for you, Mark, and for you, Maureen.

    It’s for you to know that through these friendly blogs we appreciate each other. It’s for me to say thank you to everyone participating , especially you, Ann. I’m ashamed to admit, that at first, I thought the New Editor was a person- than I assumed it must be an appointment on the cell phone. I’m not too swift with modern technology 😉 So , now I now about Zoom and this other, and I thank you for enlightening us every day.

    • It’s for me to invite you to let go of shame. All of us are not too swift with modern technology, which changes every day. Thank you for another friendly, appreciative, and enlightening comment.

  4. It’s for you that Harley could become a guru zoom leader.

  5. I feel pretty strongly that I’d like to get a tattoo of the Daily Bitch Calendar entry that says, “The only reason I don’t have tattoos is I don’t feel that strongly about anything” and show it off at my next high school reunion.

  6. it’s for you and your pictures, that i read your blog every day. ) bravo, on mastering the new editor, i’m not there yet

    • it’s for you and your wonderful pictures and words that I read your blog, beth. The new WordPress editor is much easier than I expected. It’s there if you need it.

  7. It’s for you..your constancy, good cheer, and clear-eyed approach to each day…that I am so grateful.🥰
