I have a whole bunch of wishes that are not "bucket" items since they are not things I can do. Those would include watching the grandkids grow up.
I like your list. I like archery, too. My county park has a program.

I am not an artist, but I write. I want to finish a historical novel.

I'd also like to see more art, and I'd also like to travel and to remain physically active.

I will never have grandchildren, but that's ok.

ooooh I love the outer banks and the Grand Canyon!! I've been to Alaska and we spend almost a week at the beach in a condo each summer.

I don't know about the tai chi, but we go to a drum circle

5. Christmas in Santa Fe

?? Is there something special about Christmas in Santa Fe or do you have friends/relatives there?


I did enjoy the O'Keeffe museum.

I have no family or and a couple of friends there. It is a magical time, the farolita walk - Canyon Road, the plaza lit with lights.

I would like to do Christmas and New Years. They have a big blowout on the plaza on New Years.

There really isn't much about Santa Fe I do not like, maybe the bitter cold.

I go to the O'Keeffe museum every time I visit. It is definately my happy place. That, and Ghost Ranch. I love that place so very much. Went to a Robert Mirabal show there and spent the night. Magical.
