Day 1596: Reconnecting…

Every time I communicate with my son Aaron in Scotland by phone, there’s reconnecting. Here’s some reconnecting from last night…

That’s Oscar, me, and Aaron reconnecting.

I’m now reconnecting to beliefs I have about connecting. Every time people communicate by phone, computer, or in person, there’s connecting, disconnecting, and reconnecting. It takes work to connect with others, but there’s no work I’d rather do.

Any evidence of reconnecting in these other photos?

I’m reconnecting with the reason I took that last picture yesterday. I knew that tomorrow, tomorrow was today and today is the day I’m reconnecting with my son in Boston!

Thanks to the pictures in this post, I’m reconnecting with two songs from my past (here and here):

I’m looking forward to reconnecting with my readers in the comments section, below.

Finally, I’m reconnecting with my gratitude to all who helped me create today’s post and to YOU — of course! — for connecting with me here.

Day 1412: Veterans

Yesterday was Veterans Day in the USA, so  I visited a special place in my birthplace of Boston.

I’m a veteran of witnessing war from the safety of my home, thanks to the veterans honored there and elsewhere.

Because I’m a veteran blogger, I woke up this morning with this thought:

We are all veterans of life’s challenges; therefore, we will make it through the challenges facing us today.

Because I’m a veteran group therapist, I had this thought:

In the past, I have  felt alone with my pain, disappointment, and fear.  Today, I know I am not alone.

If you’re a veteran of this blog, you know I like to share photos from the day before.

As I look around with my veteran eyeballs, I see lots of beauty.  When I listen with my veteran ears while walking through gardens, I hear music like this:

I would like to thank all the veterans who helped me create today’s post and all the veterans reading this, here and now.
