For this month's Listography, the topic is what you'd like to be reincarnated as.
So who, or what, has the loveliest or easiest or most interesting life?
OK, here goes- in no particular order:
1. A lion in a protected game park in Africa.
Lions have an OK life. Top of the food chain; surrounded by family and friends; much of the time spent lazing around in the shade of a tree. I would want to be a FEMALE lion, hanging out and hunting with the other womenfolk; looking after and teaching my cubs, patiently putting up with their gamboling antics (until they get too painful, when they get a quick slap or nip). Most important to avoid the stress and macho crap of being a MALE lion - all that fighting and bluffing to keep your place until a younger upstart throws you out of the pride.
2. A girl, in a secure home with a loving family, 100 years in the future.
What will things be like for her? What opportunities and experiences will be available to her?
(Obviously, this one needs a conditional out-clause, in case I wake up in a blazing nuclear/terrorist/climate-change Armageddon).
3. Someone who makes money from creative pursuits, and is successful at that.
Not a famous person, but someone like, for example, the kind of technical or creative consultants who create things for movies or websites, or a musician who is respected in the industry and works with others better known.
4. A science writer.
Oh how I envy these people! Great job.
5. A seagull.
Oh, I know their lives are actually probably a bit stressful, and involve lots of scrapping for food and looking for food - but watching them soar in the air is one of the best, and most wistful, things in life. Jealous!
What about you? What would YOU like to come back as?
