Don’t give up on your ability to perceive.  What do you see in that photo (or any other one)?

Here‘s “Don’t Give Up” by Peter Gabriel, featuring Kate Bush:

Don’t give up on future hugs. In the meantime, hug yourself (it helps!).

Don’t give up on gratitude — try to experience and express it, every day.

Day 1570: When you don’t know what to say

I don’t know what to say, sometimes, when unexpected tragedy strikes.

Recently, a close friend received a dire diagnosis and a patient of mine died suddenly.

Perhaps you don’t know what to say about that. That’s okay. You don’t have to say anything. It just helps to know you’re there.

When we don’t know what to say, we can respond in many different ways.

When people don’t know what to say, sometimes they offer food and sometimes they offer music.

When you don’t know what to say, what do you do?

When I don’t know what to say,  I often give a hug.   So, hugs and thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to you.
