101 in 1001—the reason

Sometimes I want to be so much more than I am.

How many of you know I went to school to study photography? That I teach graphic design? That I have a flat file full of limited edition prints and other artwork?

How about that I started this post on September 28, 2007? I guess it got lost in the drafts pile. The sentiment still holds true.


Anyway. Finding this in the drafts pile really has nothing to do with what I actual want to post about. Or perhaps it does. I don't know. What I'm really talking about is the list.

101 things in 1001 days. A way to get something done. Something I've been putting off. Or something I normally wouldn't do. Just something. Some are simple. Some are a stretch but all of them will help to shape my life in the way that I choose to live it.

I first saw the idea of the list at Miss Zoot's. She saw it at Zandria's and I believe she got the idea from here. 1001 days. That's 2.75 years. Obtainable without cramming it all in at once.

I'm going to post my list in a separate entry. As I finish the items on my list I'll come back to that post, mark them off and date them. I have a printed copy to hang on the fridge as well. Those I'm highlighting as I finish. I've already started and can't wait to check them all off.

I love lists.

I love Franz Liszt.

Oh, who am I kidding. I don't even know who that is.

Though much of your energies and time are devoted to your child and your family, it seems you, too are embracing change and growth for yourself. I like that you haven't let that go.

I think lots of parents (mothers especially) lose themselves in the caretaking. You will be able to give G-Man so much more!

I admire your lists and your willingness to complete projects of self-development.

This is such a wonderful idea. So good to be doing things for yourself and making your life what you want it to be.
