Three is a Magic Number

Updated: Aug 19

If you spent long ago Saturday mornings in the 70's watching School House Rock like me, you know it's true!

Maybe, you came to it later, like when De La Soul sampled it brillantly in the late 80's. Or maybe you haven't got any idea what I'm talking about. Nevertheless, you know that grouping things in threes works. Whether it's the main points in your speech, the body of an essay, or your top three lists of whatever.


While walking this morning, I came across the leaf below which completed a trio that I hadn't known I was looking for. In each moment, I lingered on what was in front of me long enough to have the heart assert itself. I'm certain there are innumerable untaken shots like these that I failed to see. That I failed to appreciate. That I failed to act upon. No matter. I saw these and I took action. They are my top 3.

What about you? What's right in front of you, that could use your attention?

What will make three a magic number for you?

Now?

By the end of September?

By the end of 2021?
