we started an awesome list book that's meant to capture all the great ideas we invent and forget in the same hopeful moment. there's generic things, (pay this bill), and chore reminders, (clean my boots) but there's also neat ideas (plant wildflowers on the hill behind phil's house in spring) and creative starters (make a photo exhibit with images of trees). it's a list we'll add to forever. it's a list that will never run out. it's the perfect thing to go to when we feel there's nothing to do to be reminded that, indeed there are a list of things.
seeds of ideas that need to be planted. and watered. and maybe rototilled with my strong but imaginary ox and cart.
