After a solid week of banging my head against my desk, I have a few contenders for the title of my new book. Would love your input. Here are the contenders:
- It’s Not True What They Say
- Never A Year Goes By
- The Shy Beauty of Unnumbered Days
- The Humble Beauty of Unnumbered Days
- 3,000 Patient Moons

Running tally (pulled from Twitter, Instagram and comments below) – updated 7/21:
- The Heartbreaking Beauty of Our Numbered Days
- 3,000 Unnumbered Days
- Beauty of Unnumbered Days (2)
- The Humble Beauty of 3,000 Moons
- Don’t Change
- Days Without Number
- Unnumbered Days
I’m still collecting input. Feel free to drop a comment below.
I like “The Shy Beauty of Unnumbered Days”. It is the most poetic and the most mysterious. It makes me want to know what the story is about. And it reminds me of “The Unbearable Lightness of Being”, which didn’t do too badly. Then again, using ‘3,000’ continues the practice of starting your book titles with a number, which can become your “signature”.
I am here because of your excellent “Quotes on the Power of Positive Thinking” (at https://bit.ly/3BM8zrZ). Thank you for that.
Thanks Alan. The Unbearable Lightness is one of my favorite books. And yes, the whole number thing is a consideration…

#3 sounds poetic/flows
In the second set Days without numbers also has a bit of that feeling.
