Day 2097: Will we ever agree on anything again?

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.

Day 253: September

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!
