Day 2506: Things organized neatly

Yesterday, after doing neat things  at a Food Truck and Music Festival  organized neatly by Quincy, Massachusetts, my boyfriend Michael and I noticed this neat book at a nearby coffee shop:

Here’s one of the neat photos in that book:

When I organize my photographs as neatly as possible for this daily blog, I often have pictures of hearts (as well as other things that are meaningful to me).  Today’s neatly organized things include an homage to my late mother, who was well known for organizing things neatly and whom I  especially miss during this time of the year.

What are people thinking about those things organized neatly?

Phillip Alexander & the Wild Things (which included a musician from my neatly organized hometown of Swampscott) played this neatly organized song:

That neatly organized building in the background is the Thomas Crane Public Library, by the amazingly neat architect H.H. Richardson.

Here are a few more things organized neatly:

  1. My boyfriend Michael is now my fiancé Michael (which I’ve been hinting at with some neatly organized clues in recent posts).
  2. I wish that my neatly organized mother and my neatly hilarious father could have met my neat and hilarious fiancé.
  3. Michael meets two of the criteria I neatly organized for a husband when I was ten years old: he loves cats and tuna noodle casserole.
  4. Actually, Michael might like rather than love tuna noodle casserole, but he makes a neatly organized tuna noodle casserole that’s at least as good  as the tuna noodle casserole made by my neatly organized mother.

I look forward to some neatly organized comments, below.

As always, I end with some neatly organized gratitude to all who help me create these daily blogs, including YOU.

Day 2035: How to Change “OW!” to “WOW!”

Yesterday, I changed “OW!” to “WOW!”

HOW!?

Note that I changed “OW!” to “WOW!”

  • with one letter,
  • in one second,
  •  doing my best, and
  • letting go of self-doubt.

Do any of today’s photos change “OW!” to “WOW!”?

Flowers,  cats, gelato, beautiful architecture, walks by the ocean, my son Aaron, and my boyfriend Michael all help me change “OW!” to “WOW!”

In two days, my son is leaving home (OW!) to travel to India and then to Edinburgh (WOW!).

In less than a week, I’ll be debuting my third original song (WOW!) at an Open Mic, and that song will feature many sounds including “OW!” and “WOW!”

In less than a month, I’ll be flying (OW!) on WOW Air  to Iceland (WOW!).

Here‘s “Wow” by the Lennie Tristano Sextet:

Music I love always changes “OW!” to “WOW!”

Any comment from you changes “OW!” to “WOW!” and so does gratitude.

WOW!
