Elliott's list

  • Fingers, eyes, white-collar brawn and stamina
  • Problem figuring out where to put all the books
  • The local library, worldcat, and inter-library loans
  • The university library, worldcat, and inter-library loans
  • Easy returns for ‘delivery clothes shopping’
  • Soccer boots with removable insoles (actually not easy to find) and the Brazilians who sell them
  • (yes Karima!) Street signs (accurate and readable) — since moving to Boston this has been much more appreciated
  • Art with colors
  • Mattresses
  • In-unit laundry (this may be a repeat)
  • Car sharing services
  • Airlines
  • Autumn gales where the leaves fill the skies like so many murmurations
  • Insurance
  • Professional mentorship
  • Teachers who teach by doing/showing
  • Partner/kid/family who love to cook!
