When I was in India a few summers back on a summer-teacher-sabbatical with two friends who also happened to be colleagues, I remember sitting in our room during a home-stay trek we were on. We were in the top floor of the one-house ‘village’, listening to the monk chant in the other room, and playing with the ‘village’ child. From our room, we had a view of Stok Kangri, the highest mountain in Ladakh and later watched the moon rise above the mountain. It was a crystal blue day, one of those high alpine days that make me love the mountains.
Not sure how or why we started, but we each started to make a life list. You know, the things you jot down that you hope some day you will do. The big dreams. Now, 3 years later – I realize that all 3 of us have been able to manifest many of our dreams. This upcoming year I will be living so much of my life list (trek in the andes, climb a 20,000 ft. peak, travel for 6 or more months, trek in the himalayas, learn Spanish by immersion). And the really fun think about bucket lists? There’s always more to dream.
What’s on your life list?
