Three Things –

As many people do, I like making lists. Not just prosaic ones for shopping or jobs to do around the house and garden, but fun, imaginative ones, reflective, personal ones.

I often think in threes, a special, almost magic number.
There are three-leaf clovers, it’s the symbol of the unity of body, mind and spirit, the Trinity; there are three Kings, three Graces, three Fates, three witches in Macbeth, three wishes in fairy tales, a triptych in art, three bears.

So here’s a list of questions I sometimes ask myself, and answer. I’m sharing them with you for your thoughts, and answers.


Things I am grateful for

Things that make me happy

Things I’m glad I’ve done

Things I still hope to do

Things I wish I hadn’t done

People I admire

People who have inspired, influenced me

Important qualities in a partner,  a friend

Things that make me smile

Places I love to visit

Three favourite places I’ve been

Places I still plan to visit

Favourite pieces of art

Favourite composers (this depends on my mood)

Favourite things to eat

Favourite colours

Favourite leisure activities

Things I’d like to have if stranded on a desert island

Things I like about myself

Things I’d like to change about myself

People I would like to share a meal with

  1. Lovely post, Joanna. Three of my favorite things: listening to the dog snore, warm blueberry smoothie in the morning, catching the sunrise.
