101 Moments Worth Living

I ran across an ad in a magazine the other day with 101 moments worth living. Things like climb to base camp of Everest, catch a fish with bare hands and kiss a complete stranger.

So I thought I'd create a list of 101 things I want to do or accomplish in my life. Some might even be the same. Of course, some of the things on their list I've crossed off already, like buying a standard without knowing how to drive one.

1. See all the Cirque du Soleil shows. Talk about visual art. Breathtaking, awe inspiring. Makes a person laugh, cry and dream. Who wouldn't want to see them all. Plus, at least one is in South America so maybe I can see it on one of my trips to Buenos Aires.

2. Sit on a beach in Rio. Hum, maybe I'll do that during a trip to see Saltimbanco.

4. Climb to base camp of Everest. Okay, this was on their list too, but hey I always wanted to try it.

5. See a Broadway show. Forever Tango would be the top of the list. Would even have to do more travelling to get there.

6. Cruise around Cape Horn.

7. Visit the pyramids (and or cruise the Nile). The tourist thing wouldn't work though. If you've ever read Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie or Whispers in The Sand by Barbara Erskine, you know what I mean. The whole ethereal 1800's thing.

8. Play with my granddaughter. If your going to make a list of 101 Great Things To Do, you have to remember to hug babies, pet dogs and make cats purr.

9. Okay, it isn't really fair, because the number one thing on my list I'm heading off to do in only 14 days. A trip to Argentina to dance tango, take lessons and of course, buy shoes. It just doesn't get any better than that. Until the next thing on the list.

Of course, I'll have to add to the list. But this will keep me busy for a while.
