I found compassion for my own and others’ fragility, and I found this song written by Sting and performed by Stevie Wonder and Sting.

WTF?  Personally, I have an intense craving for the flavors of nature. Why The F aren’t we all out there enjoying those Wonderful Terrific Flavors on this precious day? WTF? Who The F knows how many days we have left?

Here’s “The WTF Singalong” on YouTube:

What’s The Favorite comment on that video? WTF? It’s not this one:

There are no lyrics. But I didn’t need em. The song connected with me on a metaphysical level.

WTF? Why The F is it so difficult for me to write a Letter from the President for my professional organization’s  semiannual  newsletter when I can write a blog post here every day?  WTF? And  Why The F is it so difficult to remember the difference between semiannual and biannual?

WTF are you going to comment  on, below?

Where’s Thanks From me for all WTF’s in this post?

WTF? Where’s That Foto?

Day 2022: Raise the bar

Let’s raise the bar in this blog today and look at two definitions of “raise the bar.”

raise the bar
To raise the standards of quality that are expected of or required for something. “Since higher education became available to a greater number of people, businesses have increasingly been raising the bar for entry-level employees.”

raise the bar
Fig. to make a task a little more difficult. (As with raising the bar in high jumping or pole vaulting.) “Just as I was getting accustomed to my job, the manager raised the bar and I had to perform even better.”

Somebody raised the bar in my neighborhood with this:

I shall now attempt to raise the blogging bar by sharing all my other photos from yesterday.
