My List

For a while now, I've had a sort of running list in my head of things I'd like to do in my life before I...well, you know...move on to...whatever comes after this life. I believe we're calling this a Bucket List nowadays.

I've been thinking lately about how lucky I am to even feel like thinking about those things is an option for me. There are so many people who just have to put one foot in front of the other, day in and day out, who don't have time to ponder on what the future may hold, and certainly not to keep a wish list. Although I guess I would love to think that even those whose lives seem without hope may hold at least some tiny little pebble of hope or wish for something.

So, I'm posting my list here in honor of anyone who doesn't have a list - for whatever reason. Feel free to share your list in the comments. I'd love to see.

In no particular order:

Make a quilt. (A real one, not this rag quilt I've been working on for a thousand years)
Become a parent.
Learn to play the guitar.
Write a book and get it published.
Learn Spanish.
Sing on stage with a band.
Develop a better relationship with my dad.
Finish a triathlon.
Travel, travel, travel. All over.
Roadtrip across the country in an RV.
See the northern lights.
Live somewhere truly beautiful.
Renovate a house. Or at least a room.
Learn to really relax and enjoy life.
Learn to play the harmonica.
Perform on stage before a packed house.
Go scuba diving.
Stay in a disgustingly luxurious resort.
Get married - legally.
Do something truly great (I'm hoping I'll know this when I see it).
Find a faith community that feels right for me.
Learn to ski (snow - although I guess water could be fun too).

So much to look forward to! I know there are more, but I can't think of them right now. And that looks like enough to keep me busy for quite a while. :)
