Day 2923: Past, present, and future

In my Coping and Healing groups in the past, present, and future, I have written, I write, and I shall write the important themes on the “Board of Importance.”

I tell my group members that when I write the words “past,” “present,” and “future” on the board I can relax, because I know I’ve captured everything.

At the turn of the year, people seem to think even more about the past, present, and future. Can you see the past, present, and future in the images I captured in the recent past, am sharing with you in the present, and will remember in the future?

There’s the past, present, and future, in one saying: “There is nothing like you, there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you.”.

Now I can relax, because I know I’ve captured everything.

Here‘s a blast from the past: “Past, Present and Future” from The Shangri-Las.

Creating this post is now in the past, I am very grateful in the present, and I look forward to your comments in the future.

  1. the masks and chocolate help to support our future as we leave the past behind, and it is imperative that we be fully present in the present.

  2. Thank you for everything you do for us, Ann, and that means this is a huge thanks as we head with hopes for a better 2021.

  3. Harley is definitely contemplating the past, present, and future. He sees good times ahead for us all!

  4. I saw that Harley was nominated for the Nobel in the past. Today he’s Cat of the Year. Tomorrow he’ll be Poet Laureate of the US and Knighted:

    The beauty of the ocean was is and will always be, Happy New Year, Ann

  6. In the past a coworker and I would regularly talk about the Thin Man movies before meetings started, and I look forward to a future where we can sit in the same room and do that again. In the meantime, though, I’ll just share one of my favorite jokes: The past, present and future walk into a bar.
    It was tense.

    • This got a laugh out of me when I read it yesterday, I’m still loving it today, and I will continue to love it in the future.

  7. Well, you definitely made me smile with Nick and Nora, the mask tutorial you wear, and the little Carl Jung “action figure” in your photo. What’s not to smile about? Wishing you an early date with immunization, Ann. My new year’s wish!

    • It looked like I was going to vaccinated today, Debra, but that was a miscommunication from my manager. Here’s to health and happiness for us in the future! ❤

  8. I love your mask, Ann!
