Another page from the box

Found in the same box of wonders I wrote about yesterday. This is undated, but I'm guessing it was from around 2000-2002, before my first son was born.

The things I want in life
- Close, intimate, honest companionship
- To raise a happy family with the Rocket Scientist
- To give to my family, friends, and community
- Leisure to enjoy the simple pleasures in life:
- good food
- nature
- music
- reading
- theater
- To always be learning
- To be a part of education, and forwarding human knowledge
- To know that my life is a positive mark on the history of humankind
- Good health
- Simple comforts
- expenses without worries
- comfortable furniture
- lighting
- plants

Not too much really. And, on most counts, I've succeeded. In any case, I'm not too far off track.

I like this list a lot, but I have to admit that I laughed out loud when I read "comfortable furniture." It just struck me as very funny when compared to other things on your list (e.g., "honest companionship").

But you know I agree with you: comfortable furniture makes life that much better!

Prof. Me,

Comfortable furniture: It shows my age a bit too much, eh?
