52 Lists // Thirty-one



What is "good"? I remember being told in primary school literacy lessons to not use the words "good", "bad" or "nice" to describe objects. We know better adjectives than that, we were told. Yet so many things in the real world are ranked on "good" and "bad". In satisfaction surveys after a hotel stay, in discussions about whether your friend's new love interest is a "good" guy or not, or when someone's "bad" attitude towards something confuses you. Did you get "good" grades? Did you have a "bad" run? I'm guilty of it too but lets not settle and instead endeavour to use better words. 

Anyhow, the list above is of things that were either "good" (read soul-nourishing, peaceful, cathartic, helpful) for me, either because they helped someone else or sorted my life or head out a bit.
