Day 2220: What’s going on

Yesterday, when I was going on with my son to buy last-minute Christmas presents and cat food,  this sign was going on inside the Fresh Pond PetSmart in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA:

What’s going on with you, dear readers?

Could it be the holidays?

What’s going on as I end up this Christmas Eve post, with happiness about my almost six years of blogging about what’s going on?

Animals singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” ….

… and lots of gratitude to all who help me capture what’s going on in these daily posts and — of course! — YOU.

Day 854: Soothing

Today, I’m going to the hospital for an operation.

In the past, I have not experienced going to the hospital as a particularly soothing experience.

However, as life goes on, there’s alway room to experience something familiar in a new way.
Last night, I experienced the familiar Todd Rundgren in a new way. I had never seen him in concert before, and the experience was exhilarating AND soothing.

Here‘s something new he performed last night, soothing the audience:

My heart was soothed by Todd Rundgren last night, and by all these soothing images, throughout the day:


              

  

  




 
           


  

Here are the soothing lyrics of Todd Rundgren’s song, Soothe:

Life is hard enough
Even if you do find love
It can be so tough
Losing what you’re dreaming of

When your lovers are untrue
And the whole world seems out to hurt you
Know that I would try everything I knew

Just to soothe you
I will soothe you
Maybe I can’t make that dream come true
But I can soothe you

I know how it feels
Trying hard to keep things real
It’s so plain to see
You don’t have a heart of steel

And anytime I hear you weep
Suddenly I can’t eat, can’t sleep
Not until I’ve done all that I can do

Just to soothe you
I will soothe you
Maybe I can’t make gray skies turn blue
But I can soothe you

When your lovers are untrue
And the whole world seems out to hurt you
Know that I would try everything I knew

Just to soothe you
I will soothe you
Maybe I can’t make that dream come true
But I can soothe you

I can soothe you
I will soothe you
Together we can make that dream come true
So let me soothe you

It’s a soothing thought for me, here and now, to believe I’ll be blogging again, tomorrow.

One more soothing blogging image, for today:
