Day 888: Counting

I count on my readers to count some important numbers in my posts, as I count my way from Day 1 to Day … ?

Ready to count some numbers today?

888 is the number of consecutive days I’ve posted.

16 is the number my group therapy workshop hosted.

92 is the number of words in  “educational objectives” for that meeting.

1 is for the wonderful sustaining bar a kind friend gave me, for eating.

2 is the number of photos I took at my office, nearby.

1 is the number of pictures I took, without knowing why.

2 is the number of ears on this bunny:

is the number of photos I snapped that seemed funny.


100%  was the positive feedback I got yesterday.

9 is the number of hours I’ll spend at the conference today.

2 is the number of days before my musical  audition.

2 is the number of Muppets in this counting rendition:

Countless is the number of thanks I’m now giving
For blogging, my readers, my work, and for living.

Day 562: What Helps (continued)

In my office, I have lots of things on the walls, including my white board:

… art work:

… a clock:



… and stickies of various sizes:

That last poster-sized stickie is a list of What Helps (shown in a year-old photograph). People who do group therapy in my office have been adding to that poster for a long time.  As you can see, there wasn’t a lot of room for more additions (although we’ve been doing our best to squeeze things in).

A few days ago, I took someone’s advice and added a new poster, right next to that one, titled “What Helps (continued).” Since then, that poster remained empty of new entries.

It can be daunting to add new words to something blank, don’t you think?

Yesterday, there was a break-through:


There’s a lot more room for new entries.  Are there any you would like to add to that list?

Thanks to all those who do their best naming actions, thoughts, feeling, quotes, etc. that help them. And thanks to you — of course! — for continuing here, today.
