Yesterday, one of my readers (my bass-playing dentist Dr. Del Castillo) sent me this “for your blog”:
Speaking of mugging, another one of my readers (my long-time friend Deb) sent me this wedding gift, which arrived yesterday:
What do my readers understand about my other photos for today?
Those last two photos are for my readers who like dogs.
I believe it would help my readers to change this very unhelpful thought …
… to these thoughts instead:
Another one of my readers sent me this, hoping it would help people:
I hope my readers will enjoy what I’m listening to, right now.
I don’t know what I would do without my readers, including YOU.

My first shot at writing today’s post is defining the term “mug shot.”
a photograph of a person’s face made for an official purpose, especially police records.
any photograph of a person’s face.
If this mug wrote that “mug shot” definition, I would have added this:
any photograph of a mug
… because I collect and also photograph mugs.
I wanted to start off this mug-shots post with that particular mug shot, because
- we’re going to move, so we need to pack up all our belongings, including our many mugs,
- I’ve been struggling to balance trust lately, because of all the mugs and mugging in the news, and
- if you took a mug shot of my face, it might show worry, acceptance, fear, contentment, confusion, trust, distrust, anticipation, anger, hope, excitement, sadness, or happiness, depending upon the moment of the mug shot.
I think it’s helpful to show on your mug what you’re feeling inside.
Because I knew that today’s post was going to be “Mug Shots,’ I took lots of mug shots yesterday.
That last mug shot inspires me to share this version of “I’ve Just Seen a Face.”
I’ve just seen a face in the mirror and it looks very grateful, for all who helped me create this post and — of course! — for YOU.
