Day 3564: Unanswered questions

I think many of us have unanswered questions, so that’s why I asked this question last night on Twitter:

.

Sometimes we need to come up with our own answers to unanswered questions, and then move on.

Are there any unanswered questions in my other images for today?

Speaking of unanswered questions, I’d like to ask the Daily Bitch how she comes up with so many great calendar entries.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “unanswered questions.”

.

I like this unanswered question in the comments section for that video:

Thanks to all who have unanswered questions, including YOU!

Day 3563: A fear of forgetting

I just looked up “a fear of forgetting” and found this, which I hope I don’t forget.

I have a fear of forgetting

  • to take my medicine, especially my Coumadin,
  • people’s names,
  • people’s birthdays,
  • how to operate my car whenever I bring it in for it’s yearly inspection,
  • other important things I need to do at infrequent intervals,
  • something I’m going to need whenever I leave the house,
  • how to do a therapy group in person (which I’m going to do this month for the first time since the pandemic started), and
  • how to reassure myself and calm myself down when I’m having fears.

I also have a fear of being forgotten, so maybe I really do have (hold on, what’s the name again?) ….athazagoraphobia!

I actually don’t have a fear of forgetting that name, because I can always look it up again.

I tell my patients — who often have a fear of forgetting, especially as they age — that anxiety makes us more forgetful and that forgetting things is often normal. For example, as we age, we often have trouble retrieving nouns and names. And althazagoraphobia is a noun and a name.

Oooops! So close …. it’s athazagoraphobia.

Do you see the fear of forgetting in any of my images for today?

I have a fear of forgetting to share the National Days on Twitter, but so far so good.

Here’s what I find when I search YouTube for “a fear of forgetting.”

I have no fear if forgetting to thank all those who help me create these daily posts, including YOU!

Day 3562: Never seen

I’ve never seen

  • a Supreme Court like the one we now have in the USA,
  • the current level of wealth inequality,
  • so much misinformation deliberately disseminated on social media,
  • a storm like Ian,
  • a cat like Joan, and
  • a movie like Metropolis.

I assume you’ve never seen most — if not all — of today’s images.

I’ve never seen National GOE Day before but I’ve seen many people who have dealt with abuse and trauma, so I’m glad this days exists.

I’ve also never seen National Name Your Car Day, but I have seen people who have named their car, including my good friend Deb (“Oskah”) and me (“M.L. Carr”).

I’ve never seen this “Never Seen” video before.

I look forward to comments I’ve never seen before.

Thanks to all who helped me create this “never seen” post, including YOU.

Day 3559: Rough seas

Rough seas are everywhere, it seems.

That “rough seas” sign showed up for the first time yesterday in my neighborhood, which is by the sea. Our seas are blessedly calm this morning, as I read about the rough seas in the rest of the world.

I do believe that rough seas make good sailors, but they also make people sick. I hope we can navigate our way to calming the rough seas before it’s too late.

Do you see rough seas in my other images for today?

.

Rough seas make the Daily Bitch even bitchier.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “rough seas.”

Thanks to all who navigated their way through rough seas to be here, now.

Day 3555: Confetti Moments

While preparing for today’s blog post, I came across the term “confetti moments” and assumed I knew what that meant.

To me, “confetti moments” are when you choose to celebrate …

  • something you’ve accomplished,
  • somebody/something you love, or
  • just being alive.

I remember moments when I would say this to patients who had good news to report: “I wish I had some confetti I could throw right now!” I even fantasized about inventing a reusable confetti-moment device that threw confetti attached to invisible, retractable strings.

In a day filled with confetti moments yesterday, my husband Michael and I had one last night when my car wouldn’t start after we had dinner out at a favorite restaurant. Working together, we figured out the problem and easily fixed it! 🎉

Do you see confetti moments in my images for today?

Day 3552: Wall hangings

Yesterday, I was talking about wall hangings with Matthew …

… while he was taking x-rays of my teeth at Beacon Hill Dental Associates. Matthew told me that after considering other possible wall hangings for his home, he decided to frame this panoramic view of his teeth …

… and hang that up on his wall. That wall hanging reflects Matthew’s creativity and his obvious love for his work.

Do you see possible wall hangings in my other images for today?

Today’s list of National Days would make a very long wall hanging.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “wall hangings.”

Many thanks for reading this “Wall Hangings” post and for hanging around with me here.

Day 3551: Ruminating

Here and now, I’m ruminating about

  • my health, after I had a TIA last week on vacation,
  • my anticoagulant medication,
  • travel insurance,
  • my dental appointment today,
  • those aspects of my job I really dislike doing,
  • our upstairs bathroom, which has been out of commission for over a year because of water damage,
  • the change of seasons from warmer to colder,
  • the USA midterm November elections,
  • the death of Queen Elizabeth,
  • pain and suffering in the world, and
  • things I cannot control.

I guess it makes sense that I’m ruminating over things I can’t control, because otherwise I could friggin’ do something about them!

When I am ruminating, it helps to identify a simple next step I can take (including sharing my thoughts so I’m not alone with them).

Do you see ruminating in my images for today?

I was also ruminating about getting good tickets on National New York day for a new NYC production of the Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along, but tickets actually don’t go on sale until October.

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “ruminating.”

I also find this

… and this:

I look forward to ruminating on your comments about this Ruminating post.

Thanks to all who know something about ruminating, including YOU!

Day 3550: Who speaks to you?

Last night, after listening to many Todd Rundgren songs that spoke to me, I asked a question on Twitter about who speaks to you:

I love reading about who speaks to other people.

Do you know who does NOT speak to me (which I’ve never spoken about before on this blog)? My sister. People who speak in my therapy groups often reveal that siblings in their families have trouble speaking to each other.

Here’s someone who constantly speaks to me, although I don’t know what she’s saying.

.

Do any of my images today speak to you?

The Daily Bitch always speaks to me (even if some people in Real Life and on Twitter don’t speak to me).

Here’s one of the Todd Rundgren songs that spoke to me yesterday:

Who is speaking to you now? Hello, it’s me, with gratitude for YOU.

Day 3549: I Saw the Light

“I Saw the Light” is a song I love by Todd Rundgren.

My husband Michael and I danced to “I Saw the Light” after I got home from a trip where I saw the light at Disney World, the gorgeous islands off the Southeast coast of Georgia, and (unexpectedly) a Georgia hospital after I had a TIA.

During a long and restorative walk in my neighborhood yesterday, I Saw the Light.

.

For me, I Saw the Light means that I’m in the moment, observing the beauty surrounding me, and realizing again an important lesson I learned when I was young: life is short and every day is precious.

I Saw the Light when I was capturing all these other images for today’s blog post.

On this precious day when people might be talking like pirates while eating butterscotch pudding, what does “I saw the light” mean to you?

I saw the light while gathering expressions of gratitude for all those who have helped me see the light, including YOU!
