Day 2848: If you love someone …

  • invite them to connect with you.
  • tell them you love them, because you don’t know how much time you have left with them.
  • take pictures for them.

I took that last picture for people I graduated high school with in 1970, whom I love. I’m looking forward to seeing them at our Zoom reunion tomorrow evening.

If you love someone, what do you do?

I tell them how grateful I am that they (including YOU!) are still on this earth.

Day 2279: Everything will be okay in the end.

The title of today’s post leaves off the end of a quote from John Lennon:

Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.

In the end, everything will be okay in my previously unshared and recent photos.








If it’s not okay, it’s not the end of my photos or my blog posts.

Everything will be okay in the end with the two songs I’m deciding to share today (here and here on YouTube).

Everything will be okay in the end of each post, because I express my thanks to all who help me create this daily blog and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 2277: Probable

Yesterday, I shared with my boyfriend Michael the latest catastrophizing fear in my brain.  Michael listened and then responded:

That sounds probable.

It’s probable that Michael was being sarcastic and it’s probable that I will continue to seek out Michael when I’m catastrophizing because it’s probable he will say something helpful.

It’s probable that I will continue to blog daily because that helps me, too.

It’s probable that I will snap photos and share them with you.















It’s probable that Michael is going to make something delicious for dinner, like those burritos.


I don’t know how probable it is that we’ll get a dog some day because of, you know, the cats.


It’s probable that comedian Pete Holmes is visiting Lexington High School in that scene from his excellent show Crashing (even though I initially thought it was probable that was my son’s high school, instead).

According to my news feed, it’s probable that  many people will be running for U.S. President in 2020.

It seems probable, to me, that unless we human beings drastically change our behaviors, the future might look like the movie WALL-E.

It’s probable that my day at work today will be different from WALL-E’s.

It’s probable that some of my readers will comment and it’s more than probable that I’ll express gratitude to all who helped me create this “probable” post and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 1948: WATCH OUT!

WATCH OUT!  This is the first post in one thousand, nine hundred, and forty-eight consecutive blogging days to be titled “WATCH OUT!” although I watch out for things and also have a lot of watches.

WATCH OUT!  Here’s the inspiration for today’s title:


What does “WATCH OUT!” mean to you?

To me, it means danger, pay attention, and also yesterday’s delivery of more unsalted sunflower seeds in the shell from

WATCH OUT!  I’m not going to link to the website because ever since I reordered my latest batch of unsalted sunflower seeds in the shell, when I watch a video on YouTube it’s preceded by an advertisement from  WATCH OUT!  Advertisers are watching out for themselves by watching us.

WATCH OUT!  When I look for a song titled “WATCH OUT!” on YouTube, they all have explicit lyrics.  WATCH OUT!  The first line of “Watch Out” by Rich Brian is “They be salty like sodium” and the next lines are too salty for this blog (unlike the sunflower seeds from

WATCH OUT!  Here are all my photos from yesterday, in consecutive order.









Harley feels safer when he can watch out from a higher level.

WATCH OUT!  One of my photos inspires the choice of this musical selection, which you can watch on YouTube.

WATCH OUT!  I assumed that there was a song “Meet Me in the Dugout” by Pink, but there isn’t.

WATCH OUT! Before I decide on a song we can watch, I want to suggest that you WATCH OUT! for world leaders who tweet in upper caps.

Here‘s “Watch Out” performed by the cast of Empire.

WATCH OUT!  I’ve got to stop blogging this morning if I’m going to get to Physical Therapy on time.

WATCH OUT!  There’s always time for thanks to all who help me create these posts and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 1605: Guess what? I’m nuts! Really nuts!

Guess what? I’m nuts about getting my morning-blogging inspiration from a nutty snapshot.


Guess what?  I’m nuts, really nuts because I

Guess what?  I’m nuts, really nuts about taking photos and putting them in my blog.









Is it nuts for me to repeat the wisdom in that last photo?

It’s the strangest thing,

how happiness comes out of nowhere

and inflates your soul.

Guess what?  I’m nuts, really nuts about nutty music.

I’m nuts, really nuts about

  • getting comments from my readers and
  • expressing thanks to all with words and nutty pictures.
