Day 1028: Can’t do it alone

Whether it’s blogging, work, play, or other parts of my life, I need support from other people, because I

Even fiercely independent people (like me, sometimes)

I’m a group psychotherapist because I believe people

Yesterday, other group therapists and I discussed how people

That photo I took yesterday

… so here are some other photos:


Yesterday, people tried to guess this riddle

… but nobody could do that alone, so here’s the answer:

No guts.

Even though people

… it takes guts to ask for help and support.


… without music, so here‘s something I heard, yesterday, after the group therapy retreat.

Because I can’t do any blog post alone,

Day 1027: Blanks

I’m drawing a blank, this morning, on what to write about.

Perhaps I’m drawing a blank because — instead of blanking out and relaxing, the way I usually do on a Saturday — I’ll be attending a retreat of group therapy leaders.

If nobody fills in those blanks, I will do so  later (after I return at ____ o’clock from the all-day group therapy retreat).

I’d like to find the words, now, to express how difficult it’s been to insert blanks into this blankety-blank post, but my mind’s a blank.

Was I shooting blanks when I took these other photos yesterday?

Here’s what somebody whose name is _____ said, last night, about “Poverty is unnecessary day.”

Next month, perhaps Whole Foods will be advertising “cancer is superfluous day.”

When I tried to reply to that, my mind went blank.

What music makes your mind go blank?

Please fill in the blanks below this post with a comment, even if your mind’s a blank.

I’m drawing a blank on how to end this post, so …


106 has a lot of blanks, doesn’t it?
