Day 3734: No one is alone

Whenever I do my groups, read your comments, or connect with other people, I know that no one is alone.

Last night, I was alone when I went to the latest production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods in Boston, which includes the song “No One Is Alone.”

Even those of us who had come to the theatre alone last night knew that no one is alone when we heard Stephen Sondheim’s beautifully unifying music and lyrics. We also knew that no one is alone as we cheered and applauded together as one, after every single song throughout the performance.

I assume that I wasn’t alone last night when I cried, again, during “No One is Alone” — performed here by the original cast of Into the Woods (which I was not alone in completely adoring):


Do you see evidence that no one is alone in my images for today?


No one is alone if they love kittens or puppies, have near misses, realize they’re OK, or talk about the weather on World Meteorological Day.

No one is alone struggling to deal with the aftermath of the pandemic. Today, I’ll know that no one is alone when, for the first time in over three years, I attend a social workers meeting in-person at the hospital where I work.

Thanks to all those who help us realize that no one is alone, including YOU!

  1. During my decades reviewing music for the Syracuse daily, Ann, I often attended concerts alone. Lo and behold, the performers so often unified those in the hall with their work!

  2. The photos in this post are full of the joy of being a part of and also observing with affection and curiosity, the city- cities bring me joy – and i fall in love with them all over again in Spring. Contradictions notwithstanding. Glad to see evidence of Spring in this post! in Cities i feel connections to the contradictions of being human and to millions of others – never alone.

    Wonderful collection of photos today! And I didn’t know there’s a Poe statue in town.

  4. First of all, I wish I had had more time to spend in Boston. But I loved the time I had, walking from Boston Commons to Old North Church. I was alone, but as Batmanuel reminds us, we are never alone. Some of us are Lone.

  5. we are never alone when we come here to meet and share

  6. I am delighted you enjoyed such a fulfilling theater experience. I love that musical and it’s been a very long time since I’ve had the opportunity to see it again. I enjoyed reading the lyrics and thank you for sharing. It’s wonderful to meet you here and to know we are not alone. 🙂

  7. My oldest friend, who died in 1997 after we’d known each other almost since birth, included a song from “Into The Woods” on her funeral song list. She also included “Amazing Grace”, but sung to the tune of “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing”.
    I know I’m not alone in loving those songs.

  8. I think I’m not alone in missing Harley and Joan!
