Day 2584: Life is a shared experience.

Yesterday, when I was sharing my experience of life with kind and caring people, I noticed this card at S. Colman & Company  in Milton, Massachusetts:

Life is a shared experience and I was very grateful to share it yesterday with Sandra Colman, the proprietor of the fabulous store where I found the perfect earrings for my wedding on Friday.

Beautiful Sandra and I shared experiences of  Swampscott, the North Shore, the South Shore, courage, ideas, chances, what we love to do, showing up, problems, marriage, our wandering minds, and our hearts.

Life is a shared experience, and I was grateful to share it yesterday with Bruce and Meryl Manin of Grono & Christie Jewelers of Milton, who had helped me figure out a solution to my problem of a too-large wedding ring.

When you share life experiences with wonderful people, that’s where fairy tales begin.

Life is a shared experience and I love sharing my experiences with you.

Life is a shared experience and that’s my son Aaron and his soon-to-be-Stepdad Michael sharing experiences and pizza with me at Santarpio’s, a place where many people have shared experiences in Boston.

Life is a shared experience and I shall now share a short video I took yesterday:

When we share the experience of other cats, Michael likes to say, “That cat looks just like Oscar!”  I’ll share my experience, here and now:

  • Often those cats don’t share many similarities with our cat Oscar.
  • That cat — on the “Bah Humbug” wrapping paper — looks just like Oscar!

Life is a shared experience, so please share your experience in a comment, below.

Gratitude is a shared experience here at The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally, so many thanks to YOU.

Day 2576: Therapy

Since I practice group therapy and individual therapy, I must have created many other “Therapy” posts, right?

What attracts my attention now is this:  the only other post I’ve published with “therapy” in the title is Day 430: What I learned at the group therapy conferenceand that is one of my shortest posts, ever.

So why this therapy post, today?

That’s a sign I saw yesterday at Designer’s Circus in Boston. At Designer’s Circus, I found Therapy and Joy.

That’s Joy, who was one of the many people at Designer’s Circus who heard that I was there to shop for a dress for my December 27 City Hall Wedding and who wanted to be involved in the process.

That’s Kathleen, one of the owners of Designer’s Circus, who helped me find two great dresses. Spending time with her and the other wonderful people I met at Designer’s Circus was definitely therapy for me.

After retail therapy at Designer’s Circus, I got more therapy at the annual glass sale at Almost Perfect Glass in Cambridge, Massachusetts because I spent therapeutic time with my good friend Deb, seen here at last year’s sale.

Wherever I look, I find therapy. Can you find therapy in my other photos from yesterday?

If you want pizza therapy, go to Santarpio’s in Boston, which makes the best pizza I’ve ever had.

How about some music therapy?

Because I especially love group therapy, I wonder how my group of readers will respond to this post.

Gratitude is great therapy for all of us, so thank you!
