Day 2479: Why should we care?

Since last month, when somebody told me that something I wrote didn’t pass the “Why should I care?” test, I’ve cared too much about that comment. I’ve tried to let go of caring so much about that by

  • rewriting very carefully,
  • caring about other things,
  • spending time with people I care about and who care about me,
  • starting a new original song, “Why Should You Care?”, and
  • caring to take this picture:

Sometimes it seems like cats and people don’t care, but why should we care about that?  Let’s just keep caring anyway.

Here are the beginning lyrics of “Why Should You Care?”

Why Should You Care?

by Ann Koplow

Why should you care about me?

Why should I care about you?

If I should share about me,

Maybe you’ll share about you.

Why should we care about the other photos I took yesterday?

Why should we care about “Why Should I Care?” sung by Diana Krall?

I not only care, I express my caring with gratitude at the end of every post.  Thanks to all who helped me create this “Why Should We Care?” post and — of course! — to you, my caring readers.

Day 1582: The Best

Was this the best photo I took yesterday?

Or was the best photo from yesterday one of these?

 Did you know that a lot of the best photos in this blog lately are from my quest to find the best house near water for me, Michael, and Aaron (when he’s not at the best school in Edinburgh, Scotland)? We may have found the best place yesterday.  However, the best  is very hard to determine when you know that something better may very well show up in the future. How do you choose  the best for you when it’s very possible that the best is yet to come?

The best we can do, I suppose, is decide whether we’ve found something that’s great enough.

If you share your thoughts and feelings about how you know what’s best (or great enough), that would be the best!

The best  I could do right now would be to share  the best live version of “The Best is Yet to Come” I found on YouTube this morning.

 

The best way to finish this post would be to repeat this:

The best thanks to all the best creatures who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for being the best.
