About a year ago, in the midst of last year's high holy days, I published a list of what I want in old age.
1. A husband
2. Eat-in kitchen
3. Two dogs
4. A porch with rockers
I still like this list.
And I'm making headway towards these goals. I now have an eat-in kitchen. I have two rockers, though no porch yet. The other night, sitting out in the front yard here at the chateau, I distinctly saw the little dipper overhead. The stars were rather dim, of course - all the ambient light of a big city blocks out most starlight. So the dipper wasn't clear and sparkly, but the stars were there. How exciting!
Not only do I now have an eat-in kitchen, but I'm generating some serious kitchen mojo of late. I love cooking here at the chateau - it's a perfect space. But just because I love it is no guarantee of anything. Cooking is an art - and yeah it's science, too, but the unpredictable aspect of cooking is what interests me most these days. Whatever kind of magic it takes to produce really delicious food is with me right now. Very cool!
A little bit later this morning, I will meet my music teacher and begin playing bass guitar. I am so jazzed. Playing the bass will give me something to do when I'm old, after dinner in the eat-in kitchen with my husband. I'll sit in a rocker on the porch under the stars, my two dogs at my feet, playing the bass.
Can you see it? I really can, clear as a bell. Onwards and upwards, oh yeah!!
