Day 1986: Make a Difference

Yesterday, while I was at a group psychotherapy conference, I saw a sign.

I try to make a difference with this blog. Starting next month, I’ll try to make a difference by becoming President of my local group psychotherapy organization.

Do any of these other photos make a difference for you?

If you’re a writer and an activist, you definitely need stress management tips. I shall do my best to ask others for help, eat healthy, exercise, get enough sleep, get organized, practice relaxation techniques, and take breaks often, because those all make a difference.

Anthony Bourdain made a difference to many people.

As one of the messages in that video says, “Small acts of kindness can make all the difference. If you are struggling, call 1-800-273-8255.”

Your comments make a difference for me.

Thank you for letting me make a difference here, every day.

Day 1808: Here, here

I was going to title today’s post “What’s in Store” …

IMG_5625

… but I’ve already used that title, almost exactly a year ago.  Where is that “What’s in Store” blog post?  Here.

I was going to title today’s blog post “Lost and Found” …

… but I’ve already used that title, almost four years ago.  Where is that “Lost and Found” blog post?  Here.

Why did I title today’s post “Here, Here”? Here are some reasons:

  • I’ve never used that title before.
  • I’m here.
  • You’re here.
  • People here say “Hear, Hear” to express whole-hearted agreement.
  • I’m in whole-hearted agreement with yesterday’s special election here, here in the United States.

Here, here are all my other photos from yesterday:

Here, here is a song to celebrate Frank Sinatra‘s birthday.

 

Fairy tales can come true

It can happen to you

If you’re young at heart.

Here is the best part

You have a head start

If you are among the very young at heart.

 

Here is the best part. I’m grateful to all who are here, here and now.

Day 1722: Here, there, and everywhere

Yesterday, I was here, there, and everywhere as I attended an illuminating presentation about large groups, hung around with great people and animals, went for  walks near my new home, went food shopping with my boyfriend Michael, and watched the Emmys.

Here are photos I snapped there and everywhere.

Hey there! You’re awesome for being here, when you could be everywhere.

If you’ve been here before, you know I like to include music from everywhere. There’s this, from YouTube:

When I go here, there, and everywhere, I focus on gratitude.  Thanks to all who help me create these posts and here’s special thanks to you, there and everywhere.

Day 1350: Remembering

On September 11, 2016, I am remembering so much, including:

  1.  9/11/01, when I was in a park  on a  Tuesday with my three-year-old son Aaron, not knowing how I was going to explain to him  what had just happened to our country.
  2. Witnessing my now eighteen-year-old son Aaron going through intense security systems at  Boston’s Logan Airport, yesterday, as he left our country for his college experience in Edinburgh, Scotland.
  3. Spending yesterday evening with my beautiful friend Barbara in beautiful Boston, where we attended  a performance of  Stephen Sondheim‘s Sunday in the Park with George.

Here are some images I’m remembering from yesterday:

I’m remembering that the song I find most moving from Sunday in the Park with George is “Move On.”

As I am moved by “Move On,” I am also remembering these two things:

  1. I saw the very memorable Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin in the original production of Sunday in the Park with George.
  2. Yesterday, at a toll both outside of Logan Airport, I told the toll collector I had just sent my son off on a plane to college. She replied, with feeling,  “He is missing you as much as you are missing him,” which I love remembering.

What are you remembering, here and now?

I am remembering to thank all who helped me create this post and you — of course! — for remembering to visit this blog, today.
