Day 2205: Who gives a crap?

Who gives a crap about where today’s blog title came from?

If you do give a crap, I saw that sign yesterday on the wall of a huge glass-blowing facility called Almost Perfect Glass  in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

There’s my  almost perfect friend, Deb, who was working the annual holiday glass sale at Almost Perfect Glass, which is the home of NOCA Glass School (where Deb has taken many courses, because she gives a crap about glass blowing). Deb and I give a crap about each other and have since we were in our teens. People say we look and act like sisters, and not just because we both wear the same t-shirt (which I gave her years ago because she gave a crap about what it says).

Who gives a crap about any of my other photos from yesterday?

I give a crap about  talent, nature,  mindfulness, and all that’s in your head.

While we all give a crap about what’s important to us,  it also helps to let go of worry, shame, and other crap filling your brain by saying, “Who gives a crap!”

Who gives a crap about this“Who Gives a Crap” song on YouTube?

Who gives a crap about whether Who Gives a Crap is “toilet paper” or “bathroom tissue”?

Thanks to all who helped me create this who-gives-a-crap post and to you — of course! — for giving enough of a crap to read it.

Day 1441: The secret to life

The secret to blogging, for me, is that I look at my new photos every morning and decide on the topic, here and now.

It’s no secret that over three years ago I posted Day 71: The Secret to Life is Three Things.  The secret to higher readership for that old post is my not telling you what those three things are.

The secret to life in today’s post is this:

The secret to life is deciding, for yourself, what the secret to life is.

Can you find  secrets to life in any of my other photos from yesterday?

The secret to life is letting others know that you hear and cherish them.  The secret to my giving a great gift to my boyfriend Michael this year is inscribing something shown in one of the photos above on a t-shirt.  Shhhhh!  It’s a secret!

The secret to my musical choice is usually contained in my pictures.  For this post,

EQUALS  “I’ll be There” (live).

 

The secret to life is being there.

The secret to life is expressing gratitude to those who help you, every day.  Today, that would include YOU.
