Maggie is starting a movement. She’s inspiring folks to write their own bucket lists, and then creating opportunities for people to execute them. I have followed Maggie’s blog for over a year now, so I have witnessed her cross things off. She’s one impressive lady, and she has no idea I exist. But that’s kind of the beauty of her reach. While a great many of her readers have shared their Mighty Life Lists on her blog, I am sort of letting mine develop in my own time. I know that it’s important to aim high and be fearless, but that’s not really my way. I’m happy to actually attempt the exercise ON PAPER, since I’ve never been much of a daredevil.
Some things I’d like to do before I can’t:
Take Joe and James to Mardi Gras.
Write every day.
Cheer for the Saints in the Super Dome.
Finish the barn.
Sing on stage with a band.
Find THE perfect pair of jeans.
Host a really special grown-up dinner party.
Lead a Creative Writing Workshop.
Present a scholarship in my father’s name.
Fly on an airplane with Greg.
Anybody else up for the ride? I’ve got plenty of room in my rocket ship.
