Day 3551: Ruminating

Here and now, I’m ruminating about

  • my health, after I had a TIA last week on vacation,
  • my anticoagulant medication,
  • travel insurance,
  • my dental appointment today,
  • those aspects of my job I really dislike doing,
  • our upstairs bathroom, which has been out of commission for over a year because of water damage,
  • the change of seasons from warmer to colder,
  • the USA midterm November elections,
  • the death of Queen Elizabeth,
  • pain and suffering in the world, and
  • things I cannot control.

I guess it makes sense that I’m ruminating over things I can’t control, because otherwise I could friggin’ do something about them!

When I am ruminating, it helps to identify a simple next step I can take (including sharing my thoughts so I’m not alone with them).

Do you see ruminating in my images for today?

I was also ruminating about getting good tickets on National New York day for a new NYC production of the Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along, but tickets actually don’t go on sale until October.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “ruminating.”

I also find this

… and this:

I look forward to ruminating on your comments about this Ruminating post.

Thanks to all who know something about ruminating, including YOU!

    Hi Ann, I loved your blog today. And I’ve been thinking about you!!

    Would love to hear your voice and all your thoughts………do you want to set up a zoom sometime soon?

    Much love, Barbara

  3. we should all be like the goat – just chew the cud. ruminate nonchalantly.

  4. Some of my quality problem solving is because I’m an excellent ruminator. LOL! I try to walk the line between ruminating and being obsessive in “unhelpful” thoughts. 😍
