Day 2883: Scary pictures

During these pre-election times, many pundits are writing about scary scenarios, picturing uncertainty, upheaval, violence, and protracted legal battles after people cast their votes in the USA.

I hear from many people that they distract themselves, especially during this time of the year, by watching scary pictures, like the Halloween series.

Picturing scary election scenarios and watching scary pictures both make me shiver and quiver with too much fear, so I’m distracting myself by taking my own scary pictures. Which one is the scariest picture, to you?

The Daily Bitch calendar for today is scarily coincident with last night’s question for my Coping and Healing group.

Tonight, Michael will be taking pictures of my remote appearance on an Open Mic, which I hope won’t be too scary.

There are lots of “scary pictures” videos on YouTube. For scarily unknown reasons, I clicked on “Scary pictures with happy music pizza sound nature.”

I hope you don’t find pictures of gratitude scary, because I take a lot of those!

Day 1949: Made you look

I don’t like making people do anything.  I prefer creating a space — in group therapy and elsewhere —  where people have and make choices.

I don’t like being made to do anything, either. However, this sign made me look.

See what I did there?  I made you look and this IS even a screen.

Shall I make you look at more photos from yesterday?

I realize I made you look at those photos without explaining what I did yesterday, which included

  • working on my first original song,  titled “I Don’t Like You,”
  • facilitating a therapy group where we looked at what scares us and what makes us feel safer,
  • getting a flat tire on my way to visit a dying and beloved friend,
  • asking for help from a nearby gas station,
  • looking at the nail they removed from my tire,
  • looking more closely at the inside of my car and realizing it was past time to clean it,
  • visiting my friend (not pictured),
  • enjoying the first summer-like day of the year, and
  • eating another delicious meal by Michael, al fresco.

I didn’t make you look at a definition of “al fresco;” I just included a link if anybody needed it.

Creating this post made me look for a music video on YouTube and this is what I found:

Looking at that cover of a Taylor Swift song made me understand why Juli at work suggested that I send my original song to Taylor Swift.

If you made me look at comments about this post, I wouldn’t mind.

In conclusion,

See what I did there? I made you look at my thanks to all who helped me create this post and — of course! — to YOU.
