The Thirteenth Tuesday: We Talk About the Perfect Day

"'Let's see...I'd get up in the morning, do my exercises, have a lovely breakfast of sweet rolls and tea, go for a swim, then have my friends come over for a nice lunch. I'd have them come one or two at a time so we could talk about their families, their issues, talk about how much we mean to each other. Then I'd like to go for a walk, in a garden with some trees, watch their colors, watch the birds, take in the nature that I haven't seen in so long now. In the evening, we'd all go together to a restaurant with some great pasta, maybe some duck - I love duck - and then we'd dance the rest of the night. I'd dance with all the wonderful dance partners out there, until I was exhausted. And then I'd go home and have a deep, wonderful sleep'" (Pg. 175-176)

I think that this illustrates a big difference between people who are dying and people who aren't: the people who are sick and dying just want a normal day again without pain, medicine, etc. while the people who aren't dying are often looking for some exotic perfect day.

If you could have the perfect day, what would it include? What would it exclude? How can you live that perfect day most days and not wait until you're dying?

Thanks for joining me on this journey!
