Here’s “Percentage of Life” — a short student film by Dragos Pascu about social media addiction:

According to ranker.com, a notable percentage of the best songs about life were written by Beatles. Here’s #1:

Here‘s #39 — “Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall,” performed by The Ink Spots and Ella Fitzgerald:

My father and I agreed about Ella Fitzgerald, 100%.

I’ve spent a major percentage of life experiencing and expressing gratitude, so thanks to all those who have helped me spend about 12% of my life creating these daily blogs, including YOU!

Day 1832: I don’t want to

I don’t want to

  • go outside when it’s “historically” cold,
  • move my left arm,
  • cook,
  • clean,
  • over-eat,
  • over-commit,
  • waste time,
  • watch the news,
  • check my mail,
  • worry about the future,
  • dwell on the past,
  • offend people,
  • get hurt,
  • squelch feelings,
  • read,
  • do much of anything, or
  • complain (too late!)

I do want to

  • blog and
  • share my photos from yesterday.

No offense, but do cats — modern or otherwise — really need a lifestyle magazine?

I don’t want to be judgmental, but people who say “No Offense” are often offensive.

I don’t want to listen to music, but I will anyway.

I don’t want to set the world on fire, but we could all use a little warmth.

I don’t want to end this post without expressing my sincere thanks to the Ink Spots, to everyone else who helped me write this post,¬†and — of course! — to YOU.
