Day 3427: Inspired

I am inspired by many things, including

  • hope,
  • kindness,
  • courage,
  • veterans,
  • honesty,
  • survival,
  • growth,
  • creativity,
  • authenticity,
  • music,
  • nature,
  • memories,
  • humor, and
  • others’ stories.

Perhaps that’s why I was inspired to capture this image yesterday:

I am now inspired to show you the whole picture which, honestly, made me laugh.

I am inspired that Chobani came up with a new way to describe limitations. When I showed this new yogurt yesterday to my husband Michael, he was inspired to laugh and say “no limes.” I was inspired to reply, “ no pie.”

Are you inspired by any of my other images for today?

Now I’m inspired to share the song “Hole in My Bucket.

I am inspired by Odetta and Harry Belafonte.

What are you inspired by?

I am inspired by gratitude every day, so thanks to all who inspire and are inspired, including YOU.

Day 3388: Funny

It’s funny to me how subjective funny can be.

Late night, when Michael and I were watching the Australian TV series Frayed, we had very different reactions to what was funny. The moment I found laugh-out-loud funny got a blank stare from him and vice versa.

Despite that, I think Michael is as funny as my late father and my son, who are both very funny Aarons.

Here are some “funny” quotes:


What’s funny, for you, in my images for today?

I think two of those National Days are funny and here is what I find when I search for “barber shop quartets funny” on YouTube.

I look forward to your comments on this “funny” post.

Funny thanks to all who help me create this daily blog, including YOU.

Day 3248: November 22

On November 22, 1963, I had my first heart operation, got my first cardiac pacemaker, and got a promise from my mother that I could get my first cat.

Two days later, while I was dealing with many physical and emotional wounds, I found out that President John F. Kennedy, whom I loved and admired, had been assassinated on November 22.

Since that day, November 22 has always been an important anniversary for me. Often, I get depressed and anxious, and I’m relieved when the day is over.

Today, I’m just grateful to be alive and well, 58 years later.

Here are my images for November 22, 2021:


On my walk yesterday, I was listening to the sounds of nature and the music from Hadestown, which I’m still hearing in my head, here and now, on November 22.

What are your thoughts and feelings about November 22?

Thanks to all who have helped me make it to this November 22, including YOU.
