List Book: TV shows from when I was a child

Stephanie

I always keep several journals going at the same time for a few different reasons, but my favorite has to be my List Book. I enjoy creating lists of things I remember- foods I like, people I used to know….  It’s a fun activity that also works very well to gather bits and pieces of your life that could be used in future writing or for simple reflection. Depending on your frame of mind when you do it, the exercise could stir up some deep emotions- like when I made a list of the foods Mom used to cook for me. Emotions are often attached to food memories…

This list is of television shows I remember watching prior to my teenage years. As  I was born in 1968,  many of these shows were from the mid 1970’s. (Did I remember to add “Battle of the Network Stars?”)

If you were to start your own list book, what would be the subject of your first list?

  1. This is a fun exercise! I remember listing out the numbers 1-100 and generating 100 things I love. Fascinating to see where it takes you! From people to slightly lumpy mashed potatoes to cold water and clean sheets and the tree at the end of the block near school… I do this mentally while walking sometimes–come up with a topic and try to generate all the things that fall into that category, each step a thing. Friends, fruits, musical instruments, countries, etc. Quite meditative, actually…

  3. Stephanie, A fun coincidence – I’ve kept a book of lists since I was in high school! It contains all sorts of things… including concerts I’ve seen and vacations taken. I love lists!
