Day 1879: Do it right!

Yesterday, when I was doing it right with Physical Therapy for my torn rotator cuff,  I  right away noticed this ….

…. which was right on the top of this.

Do it right and prevent fractures, injuries, and other problems in your everyday activities.

Is that too much pressure, to be told to do it right?  Is telling somebody to do it right the right way to promote acceptance and peace, especially if different people have different opinions about what’s right and how to do it right?

My opinion is that these high school students were doing it right yesterday when they were taking it to the streets, chanting “Gun Control!” and “NRA is not okay!”

The New England weather wasn’t doing winter right yesterday with record high temperatures, but that was all right with me.

Did I do it right with these other photographs?

Somebody did not do it right in that last photo.

After I do something, I wonder, “Did I do it right?”  I do it right by telling myself I did it well enough and then think about how I could do it better the next time.

The Doobie Brothers do it right.

Michael McDonald  and music students do it right at Berklee College of Music‘s 2011 commencement.

Do I do it right when I ask for feedback?

Do-it-right thanks to all who help me do this daily blog and to those who do it right by reading it (including YOU).

Day 1421: What the world needs now

What do you think the world needs now, my dear readers?

Could the world need yet another blog post from me?

Last night, the amazing Michael McDonald told us what the word needs now by performing this Burt Bacharach/Hal David classic:

 

What I need now is to share my photos from yesterday, when I spent time with people I love.

What do you need now? If you express that in a comment, I’d love it.

Love sweet love to my talented sister Ellen, to Michael McDonald, to my friend Barbara, to everyone else who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — because the world needs you, now.

Day 1420: As beautiful as the universe

The universe of today’s title comes from another beautiful teabag.

While I was enjoying a beautiful cup of tea last night, I was equally wondering whether or not that teabag was giving me a compliment. These days, the universe has not seemed as beautiful to me  as it has during other times.

However, even though I am equally  frightened and hopeful about the future, I believe the universe is still beautiful.

Which means that I am, too!

Are any of my other photos for today as beautiful as the universe?

Because my beautiful boyfriend, Michael, does not appreciate the beautiful universe of wordplay, I refrained from making any puns about that last image, last night. Today, I’ll  write that big-S me is as beautiful as the big-S universe.

Tonight, my beautiful friend Barbara and I are seeing Michael McDonald, who has one big-ass voice.  Here he is:

To me, “Minute by Minute,” “What a Fool Believes,” and “Taking it to the Streets” are all equally as beautiful as the universe.

Thanks to all the beautiful-as-the universe people who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for being as beautiful as the universe, here and now.
