I came across this book a few years ago while shopping in Barnes & Noble. It's just a really long list of possible things to do in life. I like it because it gives me ideas I might not think of on my own, like:
- Eating at restaurants I didn't know existed, but would love to try.
- Visiting cool places I've never heard of.
- Trying a new hobby or sport, just for the heck of it.
- Milk a cow (at my Uncle Marcel's dairy farm in Vermont)
- Buy my own house
- Have my "letter to the editor" published
- Host a Fresh Air child (Eternity has visited us for the past 2 summers)
- Drive through a dust storm in the desert (a dust devil in Buckeye, Arizona)
- Drive 1-80 from New York to San Francisco
- Do the Sunday crossword in ink
- Ride a helicopter to work (in a medevac helicopter when I was an Army medic - scary...we flew with the doors open!)
- Paint a portrait (I was an art major...long, long ago)
And, here are some things that are still on my list to try:
- Visit the Eiffel Tower
- Write a best seller
- Pay it forward
- Take up fencing
- Have 20/20 vision
- Calculate with an abacus
- Float down the Amazon
- Walk across the Golden Gate bridge (we visited San Francisco earlier this year, but just didn't have time to fit this one in!)
- Learn to kayak
- Make my own pickles (I've made jam and chutney, but no pickles yet)
