On the first anniversary of my NOtable husband Michael and I saying “YES” in marriage, I am publishing a NO post. Want to kNOw why?
As of this writing, our NOt-too-longer NOxious President has said NO to extending unemployment benefits to millions of people. He has said NO to people in need like NObody else I can remember. I’m so glad we said NO to a second term for him.
Do you NOtice any NOs (or sNOw) in today’s images?
There were NO likes on some of my tweets and NO cilantro on Michael’s Mexican lasagna, but NO worries, regrets, or judgment here.
When Michael and I got married a year ago today, we would have said “NO” if the justice of the peace had asked if we wanted a religious ceremony, but she did NOt ask.
It makes NO difference to me; I would NOt change a thing.
What are your thoughts, feelings, and other NOtions about this NO post? NOte that comments go below.
I’m left with NOthing but gratitude for all the NOurshing blessings in my life, including YOU!
to do whatever I can to make this life better for myself and others.
I do NOT need to vote because I already have.
I need to share that ten years ago, on Halloween, I met my future husband, Michael. Michael needs no introduction to regular readers of this blog, but here’s a post I wrote about him four very long years ago.
I also need to share my latest photos with you.
If I’m being serious and honest, almost everybody I know needs therapy these days.
I also need to tell you that this …
… is my amazing son, Aaron, who is doing his last year at the University of Edinburgh from our basement here in the USA. Isn’t that a cool picture? Aaron and I both needed our winter coats last night because of the early snow.
I also need to tell you that even though my husband Michael needs his privacy and is camera shy, his presence is there in several of today’s photos.
There’s an overwhelming amount of problems these days, so I understand the wish to be running from them.
The problem is that there is no place to run from problems. No matter where you go, there you — and the problems — are.
If you do run, make sure you wear a mask. Otherwise, you’ll be making problems for everyone.
Let’s see if there’s any running from problems in my latest photos.
Before you run, here is “What if we stopped running away from problems” — a Ted talk by Bekhruz Abdurakhmonov, a young world-class fencer from Uzbekistan, about his experience with adolescent depression.

Running toward gratitude is never a problem for me, so thanks to Bekhruz Abdurakhmonov, the Daily Bitch Calendar, Michael for the delicious Mexican lasagna, Harley for not running away, solution-oriented groups, and everyone else who helps me face my problems by writing this blog, including YOU!
