Midweek Question~August 6~Apple Orchards and You

What more could I have wanted from that day?
Everything, of course. Perhaps that was the point—
To learn that what we will not grasp is lost.
~Dana Gioia, The Apple Orchard Poem

This week’s question is reflective nudge toward branching out…(sorry for the pun on the title)

What more could you want from your days?

here are a few answers from a glance at top posts on my Facebook feed

~more time with my family
~more courage to stand up to the boss at work
~more willpower at the bakery
~more time in the garden
~more time to take walks
~more hugs
~less exhaustion
~less distractions

and my own:
~less resolute focus on my ed. jobs (case in point, I originally typed the poem title as “The Apply Orchard” proving that Bloom’s Taxonomy is ever-present in my brain)

What more could you want from your days?

Perhaps the first thing that pops in your mind is the place to begin tomorrow.
