This idea has been spinning around in my head for quite a while now.
Recently, while going through my email files, I came across one of the many gentle prompts I've received to write it. So, for whatever reason, pen finally found paper and transcribed it.
Of course, I reserve the right to come back and update/edit/ change it wholesale, however many times I want to. So, in no particular order, here we go...
~a succulent week in Hawaii (done! as of January 2010!).
~Japan, September, 2011 (for my 40th birthday, which is actually in October 2011, but I want to take in part of a sumo tournament)
~returning to Australia (with a short jaunt over to New Zealand), Canada, Salem (MA), New Orleans, San Francisco (done a few times, but there's still yummy things to do, like Chinatown, in depth!)
~visiting England, France, Germany, Italy, and my parents' birth cities: Independence, MO (for my mom) and Sanderson, TX (for my dad).
~revisiting my grandmother's resting place in Flemingsburg, KY
~going on a sea cruise (I don't care where.)
~living outside of my mother's influence! (this is really beginning to gather momentum!)
~swimming with the hammerheads (something that's been added and removed several times! lol)
~ridding myself of all polyester/nylon clothing in my life by age 40. Having only natural (cotton) clothing by age 50.
~finding my Beloved and entering into Right Relationship.
~experiencing a non-autoerotic orgasm. (Go ahead, take a moment to figure that one out. I'll wait...)
~owning my own business. (I've had various ideas at times, but now I'm thinking something where I can get my mojo working - and having it work for me, ya know?)
~deepening my abundance: health, prosperity, friendships, travel (I am already blessed with all these things; to which I say, "more please, and thank you." That's why it's here.)
~making out my will (I really need to make sure my stuff doesn't get trashed or burned after I depart this plane...which might happen if my family happens to get a hold of it! boo hiss!)
~shaving my head. (Seriously. I want to do this one time. When my mother dies, I'll have my "excuse." lol)
~seeing my non-fiction work published. (I've seen my fiction published, in the art magazine my college put out while I was there. Now time to get the non-fiction out. I have the outlet, just need the material!)
~Meeting two people who I adore online in real life: Miss Leonie and Madame Maitri. (I've plugged 'em both on here; I have badges for their sites on here. I've heard both of them talk. Now I just need to see them with my own eyeballs in ze flesh!)
...and here are a few things that I've scratched OFF my list:
~visiting the hammerhead in Vegas. (Did that on my birthday in 2004, back when they had an honest-to-the-Gods hammerhead in the main tank at Mandalay Bay. Saw the Star Trek Experience while I was there as a bonus.)
~learning to bellydance. (Learn, not really...took some courses though, and integrated what I learned into my own rhythms.)
~Visiting San Francisco (first time: February 2004), Austrailia (February 2007)
~Meeting SARK in person (a very lovely woman in ze flesh! Trust me.)
So you see, if you envision it, it will manifest! :-) Although the exact form may take you by surprise... ;-)
