Day 3135: Having people over

For the first time since the world got Covid-19 (including me, in March 2020), we’re having people over today.

Yesterday, Michael brought the table and chairs up from the basement and put them out on the deck he recently redid.

I’m nervous and happy at the same time. I feel very out of practice.

I wonder if any of my images for the day will help me prepare for having people over.

The people I’m having over today love the Daily Bitch, and this is the first time they’ll be seeing her in person. (She’s also great on ZOOM.)

This is what I find on YouTube when I search for “having people over.”

.

This showed up, too:

What are your thoughts and feelings about having people over?

As always, I’m grateful to be having you over here, now.

Day 3133: Rhetorical Questions

Do people know what rhetorical questions are?

Do you see rhetorical questions in any of my images for today?

Should I check YouTube for rhetorical questions?

Here’s a song that asks a rhetorical question:

Might you consider leaving a comment about this post?

Is gratitude a good way to end a post about rhetorical questions?

Day 3124: What’s a small action you can take to make a difference?

Yesterday, I took the small action of tweeting this question on Twitter.


All of the answers I received made a difference to me.

Do you see any small actions that make a difference in my other images for today?


Cooper Raiff, the 20-something, first time director of the small action but amazing movie “Shithouse” has definitely made a difference.

What’s a small action you can take to make a difference?

Expressing gratitude is a small action I take every day, so thanks to Cooper Raiff, other creative people (including my Twitter friend ARTY who drew that cool portrait of me), all who answer my questions, and everyone who makes a difference, including YOU!

Day 3122: What gets in the way of you celebrating every new day?

What gets in the way of you celebrating every new day?

Is it not knowing what to celebrate?

.

Is it anxiety?

.

Is it grief?

.

Is it a battle between your heart and your brain? Or bad decisions from the past?

.

Is it creepy people with too much power?

.

Is it people telling you what to do?

.

Is it too much responsibility?

.

Is it weird animals?

.

Is it dreary weather?

.

Is it painful experiences?

.

Is it sleep problems?

Is it parts of yourself you have trouble accepting?

Day 3121: Appearances

It appears that most people have many thoughts and feelings about appearances.

Here are some quotes about appearances currently appearing on-line:

.

What kinds of appearances do you notice in my images for today?

It appears that many of us are trying to figure out the importance of appearances.

Also, I have no idea what the appearance of this General Mills slogan (appearing at our local supermarket) means.

Day 3119: What is your earliest memory?

Last night, I asked the question “What is your earliest memory?” in my Coping and Healing group. People said they found that very helpful. So, after the group, I asked the same question on Twitter.

My earliest memory is from before I was walking. I was outdoors and my sister was lying on the ground next to me. I remember wondering: “Why is she doing that? She can walk!” That memory stayed with me because my parents were posing us for a photo, and I kept seeing the photo of the two of us in the family album.

Even back then, I was asking questions.

Here are some of my not-so-early memories, captured in photos:

The Daily Bitch is very memorable.

One of my earliest memories of music is of my father listening — on a very old radio — to “Witchcraft” sung by Frank Sinatra.

Now I’m asking you: What is your earliest memory?

Thanks to all who have memories and to those who ask questions and answer them, including YOU!

Thanks to all who ask and answer questions, including YOU.

Day 3112: What are you addicted to?

What are you addicted to? I’m addicted to several things, as you might see in my images for today.

There are also some common substances that I am NOT addicted to.

I’m still addicted to Buffalo Springfield.

I’m addicted to your comments, in case you didn’t know.

I’m so addicted to gratitude that I end every blog post with thanks to all, including YOU.

Day 3111: What’s the most healing, therapeutic thing anyone has ever said to you?

Yesterday, when I was on a healing, therapeutic walk before seeing patients remotely, I thought of asking people about the most healing, therapeutic thing anyone had ever said to them.

Here’s the healing, therapeutic result, on Twitter:
