Day 1884: Inspired

Because I am participating in an inspired group therapy conference with other inspired group therapists, I am inspired to make this blog post short today.

So, I will ask two inspired questions.

  1. What has inspired you this past week?
  2. Who has inspired you the most in your life?

I will post one inspired photo.

And I will share one inspired video.

I am inspired by so many places and people, including YOU.

Day 1151: Seeing through my eyes (and iPhone)

I and my iPhone caught lots of eyefuls, yesterday, in inimitable New York City:

I and my iPhone invite you to use your illuminating inner eye of intuition and indicate which eyeful above is most interesting to

  • me,
  • my iPhone, and
  • you.

I and my iPhone now need to catch more eyefuls on the train from New York City to Boston.

See you tomorrow and and an eyeful of thanks for bringing your eyes here, today.

Day 1150: Around

Around now, in the morning, is when I write and post my daily blog.

For the past two days, I’ve been around New York’s Time Square, attending a conference around lots of other group therapists.

For around a week I’ve been getting around four hours of sleep a night. Last night I got around two additional hours, which will help me get around better.

Yesterday, I spent around eight hours with a group of people who want to get around barriers to expressing themselves fully through music, drama, and art, especially when they are around judgmental audiences.

Around the half-way point  yesterday, I stood up in the group of around eight people and  sang out with loud, round tones:

I am a singer!

… and received a round of applause.

Around 5:45 PM, I left Times Square to spend the night with a friend from high school, whom I’ve known for around 52 years.  In around two hours, I’ll be attempting to get around by subway back to the group therapy conference, for another round of healing around the same group of therapists/performers I met yesterday. It might be raining around the time I leave, but I have a round umbrella to help me get around.

Here’s around eight photos of round things I noticed around me, yesterday,  as I was getting around:

Around this point in my blog posts, I get around to asking for a round of comments.

Stop by tomorrow for another round of this blog,  which will probably take around five minutes to read.

Of course,  I always get around to a round of thanks to my around 3,000 readers — including you! — for coming around here today.

Day 1148: Prizes

While I didn’t get a  call-back “red card” at yesterday’s try-outs for “The Voice” in Philadelphia, there are many prizes in my life.  These prizes include:

  • My son,  Aaron, turning 18 tomorrow!
  • My other family members.
  • My boyfriend Michael, turning humor and caring into gold, wherever he goes.
  • My friend Jeanette, who lives in Philadelphia.
