And be Content
with the meaning of life.
so nice to see you again max...you are always missed
Flying through life's labyrinthine paths I often miss DF too, so I try to visit as frequently as possible---keeps me in touch with the pulse of ballroom.
It's a great forum to be a part of.
This is the one I really like.
Achieve a level of proficiency in at least three dances so that when I am dancing them, I only have to concentrate on the pleasure of the dance & music
Learn Italian, piano and maybe voice lessons
To be able to take off at least one summer from work to spend with my children
To be sure that my children, husband and other loved ones know how important they are to me
I will go with the list of languages I tried.
And I will try French next.
Interestingly enough... Although I've always enjoyed learning languages (and I've studied several), I have no desire to add any to my bucket list. I guess if I had to pick one to become truly fluent in, it would be Japanese.
japanese is lots of fun to learn
Japanese was fun to learn until I needed to read and use hirakana and katakana. When I started to mix with those with Chinese Characters, I discouraged even I learned Chinese Characters in middle and high school.
It tore me up when I re-read it shortly after my mother died. It's a wonderful book. But it will evoke much, if you let it. I wanted and needed to be torn up, at that point, so I used it as a catalyst. Worked well.
it tore me up in ways but it healed me far beyond that...it hit upon things I needed to realize and hear and own...thus the tears were ones of relief and homecoming
Actually I would like to add to my bucket list that I'd like to pop over to the US someday and meet folk on here (DF meet or something dancey?). I know you're all probably living in fear as I post this now :lol:
are you kidding....make sure you bring cake!!
When I was learning, they taught us Hiragana and Katakana right away. As for Kanji, I think I got up to about 800 or so by the time I stopped. But I can barely remember any now. The last semester I took Japanese, I was actually living in Japan. It was exciting to learn each new character because I could spot it being used somewhere right away
Not sure I'm ready to be torn up... but I'll add the book to my list anyway
It sounds like something I could benefit from reading.
that doesn't even begin to top my list of things to fear
Please? I'll bake...
