The Great Book of lists : Chapter 1.3 : The List Of Your Desires

Hi friends. I hope you had a better week and mine and that you’ll enjoy the days to come.

I am borrowing this week’s title to french writer Grégoire Delacourt. He wrote a book several years ago about a woman who won the lottery and did not know how to spend her money. Being a pragmatic person, she decides to make the list of everything she’s like to buy. Delacourt named the book : The list of your desires.

I’d like to twist the subject a little. Instead of listing material things to buy, I suggest we list things we feel like doing in 2016, things that really inspire us, make us smile, giggle. It’s not a resolutions list. No need to feel compelled to realize what you write down, but the simple fact of writing the list may blow some wind under your wings and help you accomplish something new, something different, something you always dreamed about but never really found the time to do.

It can be about anything and everything, as long as you feel like doings these things in the 2016 span.

Here is the list of my desires for 2016 :

1/ Cook a new world food recipe each week.
(Last week was  sprawn & curry thaï soup, this week is going to be terriyaki chicken)

2/ Discover a new European capital city.

3/ Do another summer writing challenge.

4/ Enjoy each and every chapter of TGBOL, the participants, the contributions. Appreciate every second of the experience.

5/ Discover 10 writers.

6/ Sleep late on a Sunday morning (this hasn’t happened since 2012).

7/ Try a singing lesson.

8/ Do the « Wreck this journal experience » and blog about it.


Here are all current TGBOLers :

Rosemary, Jacqueline, Al, TJ, Maria, Angel, Sybil, Cach, Jartagnan, Jennifer, Lauraline, Judy, Esoria, Jean.
