Day 2931: Everything happens for a reason

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?

I find it more difficult to believe that everything happens for a reason when so many people seem to have lost their reason.

When so many people seem to have lost their reason, I look for a reason for why that has happened. That’s why I posted this question on Twitter yesterday:

.

People’s responses happened for a reason and included the following:

.

Those answers may have happened for a reason, but I still can’t find the reasons why so many people are still Trump supporters after all the unreasonable — and dangerous — things he has done and said.

Have these photos and other images happened for a reason?

There’s a reason why I captured that last image — I plan to use the “Thank you!” to end this post.

Here is “Everything Happens for a Reason” by Zhané:

It happens that I have so many reasons to be grateful, so thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including you!

Day 2928: Love everyone

Some days, it’s easier to love everyone. For me, today is one of those days.

I also love every one of my photos today.

I love everyone, including the person who responded to my tweet last night of that last photo captioned “Harley is a Democat” with “Someone’s projecting! Harley doesn’t care” and then liked my response of “Harley cares about many things.”

I love everyone in this video:

I love my reader Maureen, who tells me that some people can’t view that video, so here, again, is the late, great U.S. Congressman from Georgia, John Lewis, crowdsurfing at the Stephen Colbert Show, with a bonus track of him dancing to the song “Happy.”

I love everyone who reads this blog, including YOU!

Day 2927: Make a wish!

Make a wish!

I often invite people in therapy with me to make a wish, using that magic wand.

Just now, I made a wish about the senate races in Georgia. I hope my wish comes true.

My son wishes to return to Scotland tomorrow to attend his last semester at the University of Edinburgh and to be with his girlfriend after being apart for six months. I hope they get their wish.

In case you wish to see some photos I recently took, your wish is now granted.

I make a wish for the return of trust, union, intelligence, and integrity to the U.S. government.

When I was a kid, I sang “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” in front of people I wish I could see again — my late mother and father.

Last night, I had trouble falling asleep because my heart was making so many wishes for a better future for us all.

I make a wish that you express your wishes in a comment, below.

As always, I wish to express my gratitude to all who help me blog as I wish here every day, including you!

Day 2926: What’s on my mind

Every day, for the past eight years, I’ve been telling people what’s on my mind through this blog.

Today, Georgia is on my mind, because of the two races for control of the U.S. Senate and because of this:

There exists a recording of somebody with sedition on his mind calling the Georgia Secretary of State, but because I don’t want to go out of my mind listening to somebody who is out of his mind, I’d rather listen to “Georgia on my Mind” performed by writer Hoagy Carmichael.

I also prefer to have Ray Charles’s rendition of “Georgia on my Mind” on my mind rather than what’s on the mind of somebody with a severe personality disorder who’s on everybody’s mind because he is still in power until January 20.

What’s on my mind also includes a broken filling in my tooth, which I’m letting my dentist know about now because he reads this blog every day. Hello, Dr. Del Castillo! It’s on my mind to call your office today.

I share what’s on my mind by capturing images like these:

What’s on your mind, here and now?

Gratitude is always on my mind, so thanks to all who help me share what’s on my mind every day, including you!

Day 2907: Widespread

When you see the word “widespread,” what first comes to mind?

My answer is “pandemic,” because COVID-19 is widespread, here and now, everywhere on this planet.

Because the pandemic is widespread, there’s widespread fear, worry, confusion, anger, grief, helplessness, denial, illness, and death.

As vaccines become widespread, there’s also fear, worry, confusion, many other feelings, AND, at last, hope.

In case there’s widespread wonder about where the word “widespread” came from today, here is the Daily Bitch Calendar for December 16, 2020.

You don’t want to be in an area of widespread incompetence and general lack of concern during a pandemic, but that’s exactly where I am. However, widespread competence and caring are waiting in the wings (including the West Wing).

My travels are NOT widespread these days, so here are all my other recent images:

If I eat too much of Michael’s delicious cooking and that very rich ice cream, my body will be more widespread.

Here’s Widespread Panic with “Up All Night.”

Widespread Panic is a band from Georgia, USA, and there is widespread interest in the two senate races there. If Democrats win both of those races, cooperation within the U.S. government will be more widespread.

I have widespread acceptance for any thoughts or feelings you have in reaction to this “Widespread” post.

Widespread thanks to all who help me create this widespread blog, including YOU!
