A New List

Being a man, I am an inveterate producer of lists. Here is what I constructed on my walk this morning in drizzly rain.


Things I am interested in:

This list seems to get shorter as the years pass. Things that fascinated me as a young man, no longer seem to be worth the effort.

  1. Being wise before I die.
  2. Writing.
  3. Greece, ancient and modern.
  4. Dogs, for their honesty.
  5. Being in the natural world.
  6. Meditating.
  7. Music.
  8. Family history.
  9. Silence.


Things that worry me:

  1. Staying healthy.
  2. The state of the natural, non-human world.
  3. The extent and prevalence of human greed.
  4. Ubiquitous noise.


The balance still seems good to me. There are more things that interest me than things I worry about. A good exercise to do, along with books that have changed my life and the eight pieces of music I would take to a desert island!

I am blind, and I hate it. It stinks. But life is still sweet. I have multiple sclerosis, and that stinks too, but life is still sweet. These are my musings.
