Do you see the latest news in my images for today?

The latest news is that there are soooo many National Days for October 12, 2022, including National Freethought Day (related to the Salem Witch trials, which is news to me).

It’s no news to me that the late Angela Lansbury was the definitive Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd. The latest news is that this is the only version of “A Little Priest” on YouTube that includes that iconic performance.

And here she is performing “A Little Priest” (which is a good example of my sense of humor) in her late 70s:

The latest news is my sincere gratitude for all who helped me create this latest blog post, including YOU.

Day 3369: What brings you joy?

In my Coping and Healing groups (which bring me joy), people have been talking about being overwhelmed by the news, fears about the future, loss, medical issues, grief, uncertainties, tasks, unknowns, obligations, other people, and possessions. Regarding the latter, several people have brought up Marie Kondo and her advice to keep only the things that bring you joy.

During these anxious and depressing times, it can be very difficult to focus on the things that bring us joy, but I’m doing my best to bring it, every moment.

Do any of my images today bring you joy?

No matter how I’m feeling, Joan definitely brings me joy (among other things).

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what brings you joy.”

I am grateful for all those that bring me joy, including YOU!

Day 3077: Senses

Using your senses, what senses do you notice in today’s post?

On August 23rd, my son Aaron, my niece Victoria, and I will be experiencing the sense of humor of John Mulaney IN PERSON at a Boston theatre, which barely makes sense to me in the moment.

What’s the sense of this Saturday Night Live skit co-written by John Mulaney, which the show’s producers didn’t have the sense to include until after he had left the show and become famous?

Here are co-writers John Mulaney and Colin Jost discussing their senses of that Diner Lobster sketch:

I sense some comments coming my way, below.

Thanks to all who help me make sense of things every day, including YOU!
