The choices we make

I'm part of a women's group that will meet tonight. The hostess asked each of us to come with a list of our five favorites in three categories: books, movies and TV shows.

Oh, my—only five in each? That is really difficult. I could easily name at least 50 books, perhaps more. And lots of movies, too. Perhaps fewer TV series or shows, although I might surprise myself. I'm still finalizing and tweaking my list.

I have no idea how we'll use this information when we gather tonight. But I have no doubt that we'll have a fascinating discussion with some deep meaning once we discuss what it is that makes these choices rise to the top of our lists.

I'd love to hear what choices you would make. Such decisions say a lot about what we value and what we enjoy. What do you think?


  1. I just love "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" because it contains such honest conversation about very important topics today--love, aging, being true to oneself, keeping a positive attitude, welcoming the "other," and giving others the benefit of the doubt. I can watch it over and over!

  2. Oh, that IS a goodie! And how we need to focus on those topics today. This week we need a good dose of those last three. Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite movies, too. The lines are extraordinary—and delivered so well.
