Day 3542: Craving

My craving for travel has only intensified during the pandemic, so it’s been wonderful traveling to Disney World and now to Jekyll Island in Georgia.

At the same time, I’ve been craving contact with our cats back at home, so I really appreciate my husband Michael sending me these photos he took yesterday.


Do you see anything you might be craving in my images for today?

Like the Daily Bitch, I’m craving recognition for my accomplishments, including getting out of bed.

Here’s one of my favorite craving songs:


Thanks to all who help me satisfying my daily craving for blogging, including YOU!

Day 3527: Blessings

Yesterday, when I was walking around the town of Melrose with my friend Barbara (who has been a blessing to me for over 60 years), I saw this:


Just now, I searched the Internet for more quotes about blessings.


Can you see blessings (including the ripples of kind hearts) in my other images for today?

As always, there are many blessings in every day.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for blessings.

Also, I want to share the anxiety-reducing blessings of Marconi Union:

Thanks to all who are blessings to me, including YOU!

Day 3260: What can you appreciate in this moment?

Last night, when I was appreciating some moments of rest and reflection, I posted this question on Twitter:

In this moment, I can appreciate:

  • Yogi Egyptian Licorice tea, which is delicious and has helpful sayings attached to its teabags,
  • the beginning of another precious day,
  • all the people and cats I love,
  • my fulfilling work as a group therapist,
  • my health,
  • my home near a Boston bay, and
  • all the images I want to share with you today.

In this moment, I can appreciate socks …

… and the thought of a cookie for later.

I can appreciate the many moments in the TV show The Beatles: Get Back, which I’ve been watching with my very much appreciated son Aaron and husband Michael. In this moment, I can appreciate that this song is running through my head:

In this moment, I can appreciate the music and the interesting group dynamics shown in that short clip from the 8-hour-long Get Back.

What can you appreciate in this moment? I can definitely appreciate YOU.

Day 3258: What’s a great gift for you?

Yesterday, when I was thinking of great gifts I’ve been given, I posted this on Twitter:

The answers I’m getting to that question are great gifts for me.

Do you see any great gifts in my other images for today?


The greatly gifted Stephen Sondheim left great gifts for me and so many others. Here are Broadway stars sharing their gifts this past Sunday to sing Sondheim’s “Sunday” in Times Square.

This “Remembering Stephen Sondheim” piece from the New York Times is a great gift for me.

What’s a great gift for you?

I hope you accept my gift of gratitude for all the gifts you bring, here and now.

Day 2017: Clutter

Last Friday’s Coping and Healing therapy group focused on the issue of clutter.


The word “clutter” is still cluttering up my white board.


Now I’m going to clutter up this post with a definition of “clutter.”

1. crowd (something) untidily; fill with clutter.
“his apartment was cluttered with paintings and antiques”
synonyms: litter, mess up, disarrange
1. a collection of things lying about in an untidy mass.
“the attic is full of clutter”

Many thoughts clutter up my brain, including this one:

One person’s clutter is another person’s treasure.

There are lots of new photos cluttering up my iPhone.
























Yesterday, I cluttered up WordPress with Day 2016: How to be more awesome.  Tomorrow, I’ll be trying to figure out how to clutter up a post when the number of the day is the same as the number of the year.

There are a LOT of videos about clutter cluttering up YouTube. Here‘s one:

Here‘s “Clutter” by Ronald Jenkees:


I look forward to all the clutter in the comment section below.

As usual, I clutter up my posts with thanks to all who help me create them and — of course! — to YOU.
