Life List

So the idea for this list came both from the movie "The Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, but also from a friend's blog. I prefer to call it the Life List for now, because writing a bucket list seems as if it could be so far away (not that I can predict the time in which I will pass). So here is my list so far:

(in no particular order)
- become fluent in French (been close, been far, now starting to get close again)
- visit all 50 states with Brian
- live in France for 3+ months
- regularly take dance classes (especially ballet - and build enough strength to dance pointe)
- have enough money to make it mandatory (and convenient) for apartment complexes to have a recycling program
- own the Monet painting called "The Flood" - not the one that is common, the one he painted after his mistress died (it was owned by Gustav Rau and was part of the Rau Collection and then he passed it on to UNICEF in Germany for one of their auctions)
-dispel racism when it crosses my path
- teach my children about the pain of racism
- spend an entire day at the Louvre
- start a compost pile
- live in an entirely "green" house
- visit South Korea with Brian
- adopt 1+ child and birth 1+ child

That's enough for now. I'll share more later!

Way to go, Julie - I love your list! Maybe we should do the ballet thing together!
