After hearing details of the Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the U.S. yesterday, I wrote today’s title on my Facebook page.
Will we ever agree on anything again?
How would you answer that question?
When I look at my recent photos, I think we might agree on some things.
Do we agree that these are the lyrics of September by Earth, Wind & Fire?
After a day like yesterday, I have trouble sleeping. So I hope we can agree that it’s okay if I publish this blog post at 1:31 AM, Eastern Time.
Maybe we can all agree to have thanks for what we do have, like this blog and each other.
Now that we’re into the month of September to the extent that it’s hitting people that we’re really into September, here’s what I’m noticing:
- The topic of “perfectionism” keeps coming up, in therapy groups and elsewhere.
- People (at least in the Northeast section of the U.S.) seem more confused than usual about what to expect from the outside environment.
- People (at least in the Northeast section of the U.S.) seem more confused than usual about what to expect from themselves.
Those are some things I’m observing. (Although, as I often hear people say, “Maybe it’s just me.”)
How about a photo to end this post?
The first thing I do, when I decide to use a photo, is to check my iPhone, to see if there are any photos I’ve taken that I haven’t used in a blog post yet.
Nope, nope, nope, nope. (Perhaps I’ll have to go to Google Images, this morning.)
Wait! Here’s one I took several weeks ago:
Why do I think this is a great photo for this post?
- There’s a specific reference to the month of September.
- There’s a mistake within the photo.
- This reminds me that mistakes can make people smile (not just annoy them).
- The sign, despite the mistake, still got the job done.
- And, last but not least, the sign shows that all things, especially inconveniences, will come to an end.
Thanks for reading, today!
