I hate the concept of ‘bucket lists.’ Life is so fragile and short, and I think I’d rather put thought and energy into experiencing life instead of just checking things off a list that ends with "and now that you’re done, hurl yourself off of a cliff."
Thus the ‘life list’ at http://domesticat.net/todo which a few of you have seen so far. Not things to check off, but experiences I want, accomplishments I’m seeking, skills I’m willing to learn.
I saw an email this morning from The Flying Monkey, the local arts center; an artist in residence there (Susan Knecht) is offering glass-blowing classes in the spring. I thought about it for a little while and then decided to sign up. 2008 was marked by my discovering that quilting Wasn’t That Hard™, and I thought, why not?
