To Do Adventure List

Honestly, I've always rather shied away from doing one of these (i.e. concerned about possible discontent and wanting to focus on savoring each and every moment as it happens -- wherever it happens). And sometimes too having everything out in black and white pops the magnificent shiny bubble you had in mind, making it seem frightfully prosaic. But then I thought it'd give folks more of an idea of the writer behind the scenes etc., and I'm already in the process of making some of these things happen, so I thought I'd tentatively give it a try. We'll see how I feel about it after it's posted for a while. I am in a list making mood right now and it's a fun list, so there is that. ;)

Some of these are airy once-upon-a-time-it'd-be-amazing ideas and some are regular life type adventures. Also, they're always with our little family (and fellow dear kindred peoples) in mind -- can't imagine doing them solo without my best friends along! <333

So here goes and subject to further additions. :D

~
learn to paint landscapes
~
take at least one pottery class and see if I like it
~
look out over a Scandinavian fjord, soak up the scent of roses in the French countryside, look up at the sky in an Italian street -- in fact, see Europe (not sure how I actually feel about this, i.e. if it'd be amazing or something better to just keep relishing in imagination, but maybe -- someday ;))
~

~
really learn how to do the gourmet thing -- warmly and hospitably
