Day 2920: Flash/No Flash

Every morning, I get a flash of inspiration about the title and the content of the day’s blog post. Often, that flash of inspiration comes from a photo I took the day before with no flash.

However, today’s flash of inspiration is this:

.

That is a no-flash photo, taken by my flashily talented ex-husband, Leon Fairbanks, of our son Aaron.

I am now going to flash some definitions of “flash.”

This is how I use Flash in a sentence: Before I started writing this post, I had a Flash of terror (like Kirov) (see above) about Aaron flying on a plane next week to return to Scotland to complete his last semester at the University of Edinburgh.

News flash: Despite all our good intentions about being safe and doing the right things during this no-flash-in-the-pan pandemic, many of us are having flashes of terror.

All my photos today are taken with no flash.

That’s our flashy cat, Harley.

Here’s one of my favorite sing-along songs with flashy vocals: “Harden My Heart” by Quarterflash.

If you flash a comment about this “Flash/No Flash” post, I’ll definitely flash a reply soon.

It’s time for today’s flashy finale: Thanks to my ex-husband Leon, our son Aaron, my second husband Michael, our cat Harley, Quarterflash, all the flashes of light around us, and those who help me flash my thoughts and feelings into the world every day, including YOU!

Day 2918: NO

On the first anniversary of my NOtable husband Michael and I saying “YES” in marriage, I am publishing a NO post. Want to kNOw why?

As of this writing, our NOt-too-longer NOxious President has said NO to extending unemployment benefits to millions of people. He has said NO to people in need like NObody else I can remember. I’m so glad we said NO to a second term for him.

Do you NOtice any NOs (or sNOw) in today’s images?

There were NO likes on some of my tweets and NO cilantro on Michael’s Mexican lasagna, but NO worries, regrets, or judgment here.

When Michael and I got married a year ago today, we would have said “NO” if the justice of the peace had asked if we wanted a religious ceremony, but she did NOt ask.

It makes NO difference to me; I would NOt change a thing.

What are your thoughts, feelings, and other NOtions about this NO post? NOte that comments go below.

I’m left with NOthing but gratitude for all the NOurshing blessings in my life, including YOU!

Day 2897: Sights we hate

Yesterday, I posted Day 2896: Sounds we hate, so it’s time to turn our sights to sights we hate.

These days, I hate the sight of

  • injustice,
  • denial,
  • people not wearing masks,
  • people wearing masks BELOW THEIR NOSES,
  • large gatherings,
  • mass hysteria,
  • ignorance,
  • criminals,
  • enablers,
  • cruelty,
  • deception,
  • poverty,
  • greed,
  • the destruction of our environment,
  • wasteful paper mail, and
  • hatred.

Are there any sights we hate in these recent sights I saw?

.

.

Rather than focus more on sights we hate, here are “Satisfying Sights That Will Help You Relax” from ZORRO.

Sights I love include comments from you, so please leave one, below.

Ready for the sight of gratitude from me?
