Real writing, emotional perspective, fads/labels

NEW PAGE of gathered-up writings: Real Writing (as opposed to practice writing, or writing that has no purpose or audience)
https://sandradodd.com/realwriting

A page on Emotional Perspective, a few years old, and never announced before.
A facebook memory led to it.
https://sandradodd.com/emotion

Fads and labels come and go (new page late 2021)
https://sandradodd.com/fad

Laundry as love, therapy, and mindfulness practice

Summer MacDonald wrote:
Laundry is love. I love each person whose pants I am washing and folding. I love each meal I have shared with my family, that needed cloths and towels to wipe up the spills afterwards. (and more)
This new page is a match to the one about owning and washing dishes. It is about gratitude, abundance, service, and life.

"Yes!" and Positivity and "lifting a finger"

I lifted Joyce's amendment of "Always Say Yes" and so there is new art and formatting and a direct link:
https://sandradodd.com/joyce/yes.html

NEW completely, about not sharing negativity, and why it's harmful. Accounts of more joy, photo, links:
https://sandradodd.com/sharingnegativity

New "phrase to avoid" added: "...won't lift a finger to help around the house" (plus commentary and links)

Site upgrades, and Don't Struggle!

The "struggle" page has a sweet new quote (up top) and a video restored.
Cleaned up, narrowed...
https://sandradodd.com/struggle

I finished the restoration of Just Add Light and Stir. Links to photos needed to be changed—all of them, in early years (from photobucket to SandraDodd.com) and then for a few years half, and all the "http"s needed to become "https," and a few other formulaic format improvements. Of the nearly 3900 posts, I changed all but about 300 (which were the most recent, and already "up to code").

I finished that earlier this month, after a little over a year of working on it a few hours at a time as often as I could persuade myself. Now I've moved on to webpages.

My advisor and rescuer in all of this is Vlad Gurdiga, who figures out little bits of code I can use to make big changes. Many pages have been made narrower, for reading more easily on a phone. Some can't be, and some I won't get to, but increasingly, gradually, things are better.

Another thing Vlad found for me was a magic spell (okay, two lines of code, and the back-end support) that will put a folder full of photos up as a gallery, and I've made my travel photos work! When you're through looking at a set, click the "x" in the top right.

Some of the blogpage links from this page might have some image glitches or missing videos, but I will eventually repair them all, I hope.
