Day 2629: How bad could it be?

How bad could it be?

How can we even answer that question when

How bad could it be that I’m self quarantining, knowing I’m doing the best for myself and for all those I care about?

How bad could it be for me to share these photos with my good readers?

How bad could it be if

  • Michael cooks delicious pasta and
  •  Oscar and Harley look up and share our happiness?

How bad could it be if Stephen Sondheim is turning 90 years old this month? Here he is playing “Move On” at the memorial service for Michael Bennett, who died during the AIDS pandemic:

 

How bad could it be where you are, here and now?

How good could it be to express gratitude to all those I appreciate, including YOU?

Day 2628: The ultimate law of life

Part of my comfort plan for yesterday included drinking some Yogi Tea, which had something to say about the ultimate law of life.

Do you agree that love is the ultimate law of life?  If not, what is?

Might the ultimate laws of life include

  • truth,
  • justice, and
  • balancing our personal needs with the needs of others?

Do the ultimate laws of life threaten to break down during a worldwide pandemic? If so, what can we do to preserve them?

Do you see any other ultimate laws of life in my other recent photos?

Harley ultimately loves to be on the table.

This is what I found on YouTube when I searched for “The ultimate law of life”:

 

One of the ultimate laws of my life is expressing gratitude, every day.

I think most of us need a comfort plan these days, so I was glad to see this in my hospital room yesterday:

How would you fill in your own personal comfort plan?  For me, it’s connecting and communicating with people I love …

Day 2625: Breaking News

One thousand, three hundred, and fifteen days ago, when my son received his unconditional acceptance to the University of Edinburgh, I published my one other post with today’s title.

Because of current breaking news, unconditional acceptance seems more difficult to attain.
