Blue Shoes and Happiness

Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith. Chapter 10. Pg. 116:

‘That afternoon Mma Ramotswe made one of her lists. She liked to do this when life seemed to be becoming complicated, which it was now, as the mere fact of listing helped to get everything into perspective. and there was more to it than that;often listing a problem produced a solution, as if the act if writing down issues gave the unconscious mind a nudge.’


Lifelists on BBC Radio 2

I just happened to be listening to Stuart Maconie sitting in for Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2 drivetime. Stuart was discussing Art Garfunkel, who, apparently has a list of every book he’s ever read since 1960 on his web site. Having just finished my own list of all the books I read last year, I sent an email to the show. It’s the first time I’ve ever had an email read out on the air so I was very excited, especially as Lifelists got a mention.
