I make lists also: to do lists, grocery lists, gratitude lists, books to read lists, chore lists. These lists keep me focused on the task at hand, items that are necessary to live life, or moments that are important.
I’m beginning to see Julia’s lists as alters – places where something sacred has happened or is happening in life.
Whether it is a list of places lived or accomplishments to be proud of or things that make one happy, the lists give credibility to life. The lists remind of happy right now moments, days long gone, and I can even see how the lists could carry through difficult times (I think of my gratitude list).
“It is my belief that writing is a way to bless and multiply our blessings. … Writing is a form of cherishing. Counting back over the tiny marvels…” Julia Cameron_________________________________________
