Day 2143: Perfect servings

Yesterday, I saw this sign of perfect servings:

Here are some non-perfect servings of my thoughts about that:

  • Who got to register the trademark of “”Perfect Servings”? Are they the only ones allowed to claim perfect servings now?
  • Every morning, I work to create a perfect-enough serving of words, images, and music to share here on WordPress.
  • This week was Veterans Day, honoring those who have served to perfect and preserve our freedoms.
  • Even though I believe that most people are wonderful, some people serving my country in leadership roles are as far from perfect as  I have ever witnessed.
  • I see myself as serving the patients at the hospital and often tell them, “I work for you.”   Those verbal servings are my attempt to perfect, adjust, and challenge the power differential in medical systems.
  • So many firefighters and other first responders are desperately serving in California, right now.
  • I’m still trying to perfect my photography skills, so I can present perfect servings of recent pictures:

Here‘s a perfect serving of Neil Young, whose birthday was yesterday:

Finally here’s a perfect serving of thanks for all those who helped me create this post and — of course! — for YOU.

Day 2142: Most people are wonderful

Hello, most wonderful readers!

Most people dealing with a raging wild fire wouldn’t tweet “Most people are wonderful,” but Joel Engel did.

I liked  that wonderful tweet and retweeted it.

Do you believe, like Joel Engel, that most people are wonderful? For the past two years, I’ve been having more trouble believing that most people are wonderful, but wonderful people like Joel Engel help me believe that, over and over again.

Are any of the photos I took yesterday wonderful?

I am full of wonder about how few people there are in those photos. However, the one I can see is wonderful, so ALL the people in this post are wonderful.

Here‘s “Wonderful World, Beautiful People” from the wonderful Jimmy Cliff.

 

As always, I give thanks for the wonderful people who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — for wonderful you.

Day 2141: Who needs a smile today?

Who needs a smile today, besides me?

Let me know if any of these photos — which I needed to take yesterday — give you a smile.

 

Who needs a perky turkey hat today?

I also needed a smile nine days ago, so I took that photo of somebody at my hospital who needed that hat that day (and I shared it in this blog post).

My search on YouTube for “who needs a smile today” found this today:

In order to smile, I need to hear words like “Hospitality and cordiality are very sincere here” (at :36 in that video).

Who needs to share a comment today?

As always, I need to express my thanks today to all who helped me create this post today and — of course! — to YOU.
