I want to be …


I use the Notes app on my phone a lot to jot down things that come to my head when I’m out and about and don’t have a notebook. And then I forget about them. So it’s fun to go back and reread what I’ve written. This is one I found from just a little over a month ago. Such a small amount of time, but I’d forgotten all about it.

“I want to be …

An artist

A storyteller

A noticer of things

Alert to the everyday extraordinary

A philosopher

Full of grace and kindness




A doer … and a dreamer.”

(What I long for at age 37 doesn’t seem all that different from what I longed for at age 22. A little closer to being all that, I hope, but I’m not sure the journey ever ends … or ever should.)
