I'm doing a daily health challenge on FaceBook, and today we're challenged to come up with a bucket list: those things one wants to do before they die. The real challenge is, once you've finished writing the list of 5 or 10 things, to choose one you will focus on this year that you can make some headway on, or actually accomplish. So, here's my list:
Bucket list 2011
Visit Scotland for a month
Go to Bilbao to see the museum by Gehry
go back to my Italian language studies and become fluent enough for conversation
learn to read in French
Go to Paris for a month
Spend a year traveling the world on that condo ship The World as someone’s housesitter
Live in Tuscany after the kids are grown
Have The Godmother picked up by HBO as a long-running series with me as creator/head writer
Can you guess which one I've chosen to work on? If you can, post a comment and I'll let you know whether you're right and how I plan to proceed in 2011.
