Thursday Thirteen #385

Let's say that after you die you become a spirit and you join all the other spirits. Not all of them have lived or taken human form yet, though. You are talking to some who have never lived about how you HAVE lived. Some of the spirits who have never lived say they think they will travel to earth in a human body soon and live. They ask you what thirteen things on Earth should they be sure not to miss? You say . . .

1. Love someone else completely and thoroughly.

2. Find a good friend.

3. Get an education - read all the great works.

4. Commune with nature (take lots of walks in the woods).

5. Learn an art or a craft (writing, drawing, sewing, knitting).

6. Learn to cook tastily and healthfully.

7. Travel everywhere you can when you are in your 20s - earlier, and you won't remember it; put it off, and you may never get there.

8. Love a child.

9. Learn how to help others.

10. Visit museums.

11. Learn how to be alone with yourself.

12. Experience the joys of all of the senses, but most especially touch.

13. Express your creativity in new and exciting ways.

How would you answer the question?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 385th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. These are excellent suggestions and ALL of them important. I think #11 especially so.

  2. That is certainly a recipe for a good life.

  3. Wow, these must-do-while-on-earth are great. I hope to have done all of these before I leave here. Thanks.

  4. Good post, Anita! Speaking of reading . . . Happy World Reading Day! My T13

  5. What a lovely list! Reading it made me a little reflective. You're very wise.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
