The Word of the Day at Dictionary.Com is “listless”:
Having no desire or inclination; indifferent; heedless; spiritless.
Reading the definition this Sunday morning, I saw this interpretation: without a list.
I had been traveling and working so much in the past 2 months that I could not keep up with my posting here and, as time went by, I felt even more listless about posting.
Then I got it into my head that I needed to make a list of possible topics before I could even make one post. But I made my list yesterday, and still… listless.
So what hit me this morning was the thought that our busy lives are managed by lists. But what happens when you have no more lists?
Who wants a retirement that is listless.
