Amanda, over at etc has started a list of “100 things to do before you go” and has invited her readers to join in. So I am! She has her list divided into smaller lists of 20, which I also like and am going to shamelessly copy. So here are my first 20:

  1. Visit Pompeii
  2. Visit Florence and it’s museums
  3. Visit Rome
  4. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to just spend an extended amount of time in Italy. Like several months. Or maybe a year.
  5. Learn Italian
  6. Learn to paint in the sumi-e style
  7. Learn more about Zen (and maybe practice it if it suits me)
  8. Learn to play guitar
  9. Learn to play the banjo
  10. Read all of the Newberry Award winners.
  11. Learn the art of glass blowing.
  12. Get paid to be a photographer (travel photography would be ideal)
  13. Write a damn good poem
  14. Hike the Appalachian Trail.
  15. Live at the ocean (again)
  16. Learn to crochet
  17. Make a fancy quilt like “Dear Jane
  18. canoe down the Little Spokane River
  19. run a marathon
  20. be my own boss

Stay tuned for the next 20… In the next few days… Or week…
