Day 2997: You are definitely not alone

Even when you feel like you are alone, you are definitely not alone. You are definitely not alone as you look at my latest images. I’m so glad that my son is not alone in Scotland. Whether you are or aren’t familiar with the Nichols and May beer commercials, you are definitely not alone. The […]

Day 289: Sometimes, it just helps to know you’re not alone

Two confessions, this morning: Sometimes, I confuse words for things. For example,  I’ll say “January” when I mean “July.”  I wonder if people think —  when I do that — that I am confused about what time of year it is.  THAT could be embarrassing. Sometimes, I procrastinate making changes. That can feel embarrassing, too. […]

Day 3088: What emotion do you have the most trouble expressing?

Most people have trouble expressing at least one emotion, so I had no trouble asking today’s title question on Twitter. Other people expressed trouble expressing affection, vulnerability, joy, disappointment, and other emotions. I had no trouble expressing that they were not alone. I have no trouble expressing my belief that it is healing to own […]

Day 2982: What are you craving these days?

Yesterday, when I was craving connection with others, I posted this on Twitter: Looks like I am not alone in craving certain types of foods and also connection with others. What are you craving these days? Do you see anything you crave in my other images from yesterday? I figured people might be craving today’s […]

Day 2861: What do you need?

Here and now, what do you need? Do you need comfort? reassurance? good news? results? money? a drink? love? hope? peace? self esteem? time for yourself? social contact? justice? to know that you are not alone? I need to take a breath, to be in the moment, to be grateful for all I have, and […]

Day 2785: Alone

For years, my excuse for not writing more was that I did not like doing things alone.  Writing, I was not alone in realizing, is what most people do alone, and I thought I would only enjoy writing if I collaborated with other people. However, for seven-and-a-half years (which I, alone, am counting), I have […]

Day 2754: Reasons you should speak up

Are you ever in situations where you don’t speak up, and you’re not sure why you are silencing yourself? I’ve noticed this in myself and in others. And this tendency to not speak up is especially critical these days, when silence can equal violence. Besides that article about speaking up against racism (linked to in […]

Day 2701: Alone in the presence of others

Seven years ago (but who’s counting?), I created and published my other lone daily blog post with the title “Alone in the presence of others.” In the presence of others, here and now, I notice that earlier blog post focuses on group therapy, has no photos, and has no comments. Since then, I’ve made a […]

Day 2658: If you are struggling

If you are struggling during these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic, you are not alone. Yesterday, as humans I love and people I work with were struggling, I captured these images: When I was struggling to fall asleep last night, I looked at that New Yorker page on my phone. If I am struggling, […]
