New Adventures This Fall
written by Raulla S. Mitchell
“Life is like playing a violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.”
Samuel Butler (1835-1902) Victorian author and poet
Fall is a time for new adventures. What do you dream of learning? What’s on your bucket list?
. Hablar espanol while dining on paella in Barcelona, late into the night, under the stars. Manger tarte a l’oignon in Strasbourg, and parler francais strolling along la route du vin, inhaling air that smells of melted cheese and the best white wine ever.
. Paint a portrait of your child, one that captures her heart and spirit.
. Sculpt your dog’s face as a classical work of art. It goes perfectly next to Buddha’s head.
. Write a love poem, novel, or your family history (add a little sizzle to all)
. Horseback ride in Wyoming. Sing with wolves. Swim with dolphins.
. Slow dance at sunset on a beach (on in your backyard). Tap dance your way into his heart.
. Bake a chocolate cheesecake worthy of the best bakery in town. Invite a friend. Devour. If it’s a flop, say that’s the way they love it in France. Most people will believe you.
The possibilities are endless. The bath is the perfect time to dream about all the beautiful adventures life offers. Life is about taking a leap into something new and sharing the adventure.
Keep a secret journal to write down new items on your bucket list. Create a Bucket List Pinterest Board, and start pinning. Once you start, it’ll be a challenge to stop, and who says you need to. Keep going until you need to refuel.
Just make sure to take your list off the pages and bring it to life!
