In the spirit of making lists, I thought I'd make a list of things I want to do before I die. I've never been able to make one of these lists before because I never wanted to admit there were things I wanted. Unfulfilled longings. Didn't want to be disappointed. But I'm trying to think differently, so here's my list. It may be short.
Grad school -- ok, that's a cheat because that's going to happen soon. But it IS something I wanted for a very long time.
To write magazine articles. About what, I don't know.
Write a book. Again, about what, I don't know. I just think I have it in me to write a book.
Travel to all 50 states, especially to the Rockies. And tent camp. :)
Learn another language. This one will be tough because my language aptitude is almost nil. Maybe I'll learn Hebrew. That's an easy one, right?
Learn to play the accordion. There is absolutely no explanation for this. They're really cool!
Make a real stained glass window.
Lose 50 pounds.
So there you have it. Maybe I'll add to this list later. Are there things you want to do before you die?
Until I write again ...
