Round and Round

Carousel

I don’t have a bucket list, but I do have some thoughts on things I’d like to do, even if only in my mind. Here are a few thoughts and things:

Walk down Rodeo Drive and pull a Julia Roberts: “big mistake…big…huge”. Wouldn’t you just love to do that with some of the stores you deal with?

Drive a Lamborghini along the California coast. (As someone who doesn’t know one car from another, I don’t know where that came from.)

Drink champagne; eat green grapes and caramelized onion-aged cheese while watching a sunset.

Create my own perfume. Well more to the point: create a beautiful perfume decanter. (Or maybe wine…or single malt scotch)

Wear all white, with eyelets and lace. So not me. 

Wear angora. See above.

Wear diaphanous, flowing “Woodstock” type clothing, with a wreath of daisies in my hair and Janis Joplin-like glasses. Ditto above.

Sit and listen to every Beatles song, over and over and over again. (Oops: I already do that:)

Eat smoked salmon with capers and dill in Finland, after sweating in the sauna and jumping naked into the lake.

Drink iced vodka in the ice hotel.

Take a dogsled ride through a snowy forest; top it off with homemade cake- donuts dipped in fresh maple syrup while warming up in front of a wood stove.

Explore a deserted building full of the artifacts from a previous owner and create a story about what that life looked like.

Lie down in a field of wildflowers and watch clouds.

Roam miles of beach and collect buckets full of seashells.

Ride round and round on a beautiful vintage carousel.

What are some of the things on your bucket list or things you’d like to do?
