We all have one. The Bucket List. Maybe we don’t have it written on paper – maybe it is just in our heads – maybe we don’t even realize we have one – but we do.
It is those ideas that swirl around in our heads of places we want to go – things we want to accomplish – maybe even someone we want to meet.
I found that mine became an official “bucket list” during my 49th year. You know – that year before the BIG 50. When you think, “Oh My Gosh – I am going to be a half century old and I haven’t yet gone to Figi or kissed George Clooney or danced with the Rockettes.”
Ok – so those weren’t on my bucket list – well, maybe kissing George Clooney.
And, yes, the VL’s MAN knows all about this – and for some reason he is not worried at all.
I didn’t really write anything down or say I am going to do this or that. It just kind of happened.
For example….I ran a few 5Ks and I started singing in our church choir. Both things that I spent most of my life saying that I couldn’t do. I don’t run….and even though I play some instruments, I don’t sing. Well…..I guess maybe I can run a little and sing a little, who knew?
Now I have found that latest item in the bucket….photography!
My husband lovingly calls me “flashbulb” – and my sweet girl Maggie, so far, is a willing model for me.
I live in one of the most beautiful areas in this country – kind of a photographers “mecca!”
And…my husband has a beautiful garden that always has something to “capture!”
So – here I go – checking off another item on my bucket list…..at least until George comes to the ferry!
