In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Satisfaction of a List.”
In the mornings I get all the ideas for the day. What has to been done. Who to call. What to write on the blog.
Sometimes I re-read my lists days after and find that some of the things are still not done!
Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night with a very urgent idea to be remembered. If not put down the inspiration would disappear in the morning.
The writing pad I use for the moment was found in London in the shop in the crypt of St. Martin-in-the-Fields and it’s an expression of typical English humor, which I love. It reminds me of my lifelong love for classical music.
The place is worth visiting as you get lovely traditional and still very healthy English food there all day and evening. Nearly every day they have classical concerts in the church too. You find it opposite The National Gallery at Trafalgar Sq.
When I worked as a health visitor I used the same principle of writing down all the tasks for the day and inputs that came to me like calling families I thought had an extraordinary need to be checked up on.
