So I’m curious: What’s on your bucket list?
A couple of years ago, I decided I’d make up for lost time and rekindle my love for music. I played piano and violin growing up and, conveniently for me, when we moved to South Texas from the Midwest, I “forgot” to enroll in orchestra classes.
Amidst the confusion and transition of the move, my mom probably forgot about it. And then she didn’t. But by then it was a year or two too late, and I only played on occasion at church or for other gatherings.
Ever since I started playing violin in the 4th grade, all I really wanted was to play the cello. Trouble was, it was a lot bigger than I was, and I had a mile to walk to school, each way. So there went that.
I’ve grown a couple of inches taller since then, and I’m feeling pretty good about returning to playing a stringed instrument again. Only this time, it’s going to be a lot bigger.

One of the items on our bucket list was a hot air balloon ride, and we did it last year–awesome!
Others on my list now: tour the Galapagos (I’m an ecologist, so it’s kind of like Mecca), Austrailia and New Zealand, and blowing glass. The latter I plan to do this year.
Those are great list items, Steve! Yes, NZ would be an awesome place – AND Galapagos! No shortage of writing/contemplating on those trips.
I went back to the piano a couple of years ago, but then I added several more things to my plate and had to quit again. Sigh. Good luck with your playing!
