With just a week to pass before I take off for a new life in Canada, I am beginning to dream new dreams for my future. I am letting myself fantasize and imagine what kinds of personal experiences, particularly pastimes or hobbies such as fitness and cultural activities, I may and could have over the next few years. I am not talking about work and housing here.
New bucket list:
*try snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing
*travel to new places, including the following: northern and eastern Canada, Mexico, Caribbean islands, Mt. Fujiyama, Greece, more sites in Italy, Rhein Valley, return to France and Spain
*volunteer stints abroad (a few weeks to a few months): return to Costa Rica, try Sri Lanka
*performing arts, including singing, dancing and theatre
*painting if arm healthy enough
*community or advocacy journalism on political and social issues and change, maybe with a focus on seniors or a publication for/by seniors
*some strategically chosen area of activism (to which the above journalism would be connected)
Fingers crossed, hopes up.
