Lifelong To-Do List

My brother and sister-in-law are preparing to move to California. As part of the packing process, they are getting rid of a lot of items. Last weekend I acquired Kellie's collection of Real Simple magazines. Yay! They always have a section called "Your Words" where readers write in to answer a question posed in a previous issue.

The one I was reading asked for 3 things from the readers' lifelong to-do list. It got me thinking, and it's tough to narrow it down to 3 but here's mine:

1) Pen a book (non-fiction or fiction)
2) Learn to play the violin
3) Attend a film festival (perhaps Telluride or Sundance)

You'll have to check back with me in about 40 years to see if I've accomplished them. Hopefully it won't take me that long...

Pen a book is on my to do list as well.
You want to learn to play the violin? I never knew that.
Love you, cousin.

Yay! Do it! And let me come to the film festival with you. I like Telluride.
