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...
