Day 1313: Who am I?

Who am I to ask that question?

Who am I?

I am

  • a mother,
  • a daughter,
  • a sister,
  • a girlfriend,
  • a friend,
  • a psychotherapist,
  • a blogger,
  • a patient,
  • the owner of a very unusual heart,
  • an American,
  • a baby boomer,
  • a traveler,
  • a teacher,
  • a learner,
  • a computer user,
  • a chocolate lover,
  • a singer,
  • an observer of human nature,
  • a fan of felines,
  • an adult, and
  • many other things.

Who am I to withhold the inspiration for today’s blog post?

Who am I to choose today’s music (hereherehere, and here)?

 

 

And who are you?

Who am I if I don’t thank my friend Jeanette (for the heart amulet), everybody else who helped me create today’s blog post, and you — of course! — no matter who you are.

Day 1271: Age

No matter what your age, chances are you have some thoughts and feelings about age.

Adults of all ages have been attending my therapy groups for a dog’s age. Yesterday, I asked people of different ages to write, draw, or otherwise express themselves about age.

I, age 63, wrote this poem about age:

What are your thoughts and feelings about age?

When my age was a day younger, I took other photos.  Do any of them relate to age?

As I was thinking about age yesterday, I heard two ageless songs about age — “I am a Child” and “Old Man” —  from  Neil Young (who I’ve been listening to between the ages of 15 and 63).

What song would you choose about age?

For more than a  hamster’s age, I’ve been expressing ageless gratitude to people of all ages (including you!) who help me create this daily blog.

Soon after I published this post, I saw this age-related poll about the British vote to leave the European Union.
