Day 2968: Deprivation

In the training group I attended this weekend, we discussed, enacted, acknowledged, and healed people’s deprivation.

Lest there be a deprivation of definition here, here’s a definition of deprivation:

The deprivation we addressed in the training group “Developing Resilient Group Leadership” was not of the material kind. It was the deprivation of emotional validation, physical contact, and unconditional love. I got to address some personal early deprivation by expressing my feelings and needs safely, by telling people I loved them, and by receiving love back.

Do you see deprivation in my most recent images?

I don’t want this post to have a deprivation of music, so here’s “Deprivation” by the Thofte/Thorsen Quintet:

If you don’t want there to be a deprivation of comments about this “Deprivation” post, please leave one below.

There is no deprivation of gratitude here, so thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU!

Day 2930: Home is

Home is

  • where the heart is.
  • where I hang my masks.
  • where I don’t have to wear a mask.
  • where I’m writing this blog post.
  • where I have all my feelings.
  • where I try to let go of fear, worry, anxiety, and despair.
  • a comfort to me.
  • where I feel safe.
  • where I am doing my remote Coping and Healing groups.
  • where I gather my strength.
  • where I live with my husband Michael and our cat Harley.
  • like the best restaurant ever because Michael is such a great cook.
  • where I took these photos:

Home is different things to different people.

“Home is” by Jacob Collier is what I was listening to yesterday when I took those photos of homes.

Home is where I’ll be awaiting any comments on today’s post.

Home is where I am grateful, here and now, for all who help me feel like I’m always at home, including YOU.

Day 2891: My days are numbered (correctly)

Yesterday, I noticed there was a problem with the numbering of my posts, so I went back in time and discovered my mistake.

Do you see the problem with the number there? My numerical dyslexia caused me to write “2184” instead of “2148” for the “Don’t miss the drama” post. My excuse for that mistake is that I wrote that post soon after being driven in a terrible snowstorm to NYC for a group therapy conference two years ago.

No matter what the excuse, I knew it would take many hours to correct all the subsequent numbers, but I got right down to it.

Since then, I’ve renumbered all of the posts correctly, and found a bunch of unanswered comments on the way. This is why I am so late posting my correctly numbered post today.

Let’s see what number of other images I have to share with you today.

It took a lot of thinking to fix this blog numerically, but now it’s done!

Let’s celebrate with a favorite number number.

Believe it or not, this is the first time that I have heard that version of that number — “Hard Eights” by Lyle Mays.

I hope you know that I number you among the wonderful people who help me create this daily blog, so uncountable and innumerable thanks to you !
