Thank you, dear readers, for all the messages of encouragement you’ve given me for my blog posts, my photos, my original songs, my work, my sense of humor, and my various adventures, through sickness and in health.
The messages of encouragement people left about yesterday’s post, featuring my t-shirt and song “Left the House Before I Felt Ready” were incredibly profound. I am now thinking about ways I might market my t-shirt and song, encouraging people to share those messages and also support a worthy charity.
My long-time and encouraging reader Maureen (a/k/a Sitting on my own Sofa) left this message about my “I Left the House Before I Felt Ready” song …
I think that you also stayed at home before you felt ready. 😊
… which encouraged me to write this additional verse:
I stayed at home before I felt ready.
The virus has made us all scared and unsteady.
I caught it in March and then flattened the curve
Even though isolating gets on my last nerve.
To protect other people and save my own heart
Staying home before ready was just doing my part.
I encourage you to listen to “I Left the House Before I Felt Ready,” imagining those new messages at the end:
I am now encouraged to start writing songs again, ignoring and otherwise overcoming any messages of discouragement from myself or others.
Do you see any messages of encouragement in the images I captured yesterday?
