Today (Ok, 4 days ago, I’m very behind) SBB asks what you really NEED to survive.
I need The Boy and Fairy Girl- without them, I have no reason. I need food, air, and water. (I sound like a plant! :)) Real, nourishing food, fresh air, and clean water. Sunshine- without it, I’d get very depressed. I need shelter- a place that’s warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Clothing, for similar reasons. (Though, clothing almost becomes a want rather than a need, in summer- too bad it’s illegal to be naked. *sigh*) I need sleep. I need nature- animals and things that are green. Without them, it would be a bleak place. I need books, and time to think. To be alone, to grow. I need family, connection to my past. I need girlfriends- reflections of different aspects of myself, challenging one another, supporting and comforting one another. I need beauty- art, music.
That’s all I can think of. Could I pare down this list, even? Yes, but to be my best, this is what I need. What do you need?
