My List

How does one live a meaningful life? I asked this question.


A song sparrow chipped at dusk, three times, and started
me thinking about what it takes to know that out there in the
creeping dark, it is he, Song Sparrow, without a doubt, I hear
giving thanks for the pleasures of the day. So, I made a
list of requirements. I’ll read it to you.

1. Notice that you are not alone in the world.
2. Become interested in something besides yourself.
3. Engage in relationship.
4. Learn what makes a good offering.
5. Serve the other in this way.

That’s something.
