100 Things Before I Go, Redux

Some of you -- the extraordinarily patient among you -- have been reading long enough to remember my Life List. Back then, I had a good handle on the reasons for the list. "...writing them down forms a commitment with your soul to reach further. To live bigger. And smaller. To remember that we all go. To recognize the time is now."

Yet another of the threads I dropped in the long haul to my new job and new life LA. (sigh)

But this summer is about picking up those threads, about beginning again. Today I started a Spark board for my 100 Things, a pictorial journal of the list and my progress.

Building the board, I was forced to recognize that I've missed the boat on some things. For example, Over the Transom Books in Fairhope Alabama, no longer exists. I no longer live close enough to the Katy Trail to ride it easily. On the other hand, now it will be a lot easier to meditate at the Joshua Tree and drive the PCH and visit Yosemite. (Who know CA loomed so large in my dreams?)

Anyway, check out the Spark board if you get a chance. May it renew your commitment to your own dreams.

Dear Jerri, I didn't know you were blogging again and so have missed all your California postings. I'll try to get them read this long weekend.

I found out only because I was reading the comments on Deb Shucka's latest posting and saw a comment from you. Oh, joy in the morning! Peace.

This would be an ideal time to visit Yosemite. Incredible experience.

Well, next time!

How wonderful it is to come here on a Sunday morning and have several posts of your to read. I'd sort of forgotten how much I love the way you see the world and make it real for your readers in a way no one else can. I'm so glad you're having this new adventure - that you're no longer in Kansas, but out in the world living such an amazing life. I'm so glad to know I get to treat myself to your stories on a regular basis again.

Do Yosemite. Then do it again and again and again. I've been there, more than once, and returning there is on my own bucket list.

going through issues with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I cannot subscribe to it. Is there anybody else having the same RSS problems? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanks!!"
