Tuesday: Three Truths and One Wish

I was thinking the other day that I should start some sort of regular, once a week feature on this blog.  Actually, {tinniegirl}, who is hosting Blogtoberfest, suggested it in a recent post.  So this morning, in that space between awake and asleep, an idea appeared: three truths and one wish.

Then I had to figure out what day to post this feature: Monday is typically viewed as the beginning of the week, and Friday as the end.  Then there’s Sunday, the sacred day of rest.  But, today is Tuesday.  I want to do it today.  Then I thought: Tuesday = T = Three Truths.  Wednesday, the next day = W = Wish.  Tuesday, truth, is now, and Wednesday, a wish, is that future that will come after, what will follow truth.  Perfect. Tuesday it is.  And, dear reader, please be aware that this magic math is the only kind I can perform.

  • Truth: I love books and reading.  I am a bibliophile, a person who collects or has a great love of books. I am usually reading 2-5 at any given time, a bad habit I developed in graduate school.
  • Truth: My favorite things to read are coming of age or redemption narratives, creative non-fiction or fiction, either one.
  • Truth: I also love reading about people and the dogs they love.
  • Wish: To publish a memoir about my own coming of age and redemption, including the dogs I love.

In light of this list, Leo Babauta of zenhabits.net just wrote a post called “How to Read More: A Lover’s Guide” that you might be interested in.

  • Go ahead, make a wish.
