To Do

583. Pick an animal to be my mascot

Humans have always felt deep bonds between themselves and animals.

500. Take part in a rain dance

I missed out on seeing a rain dance when I attended a powwow that got rained out.

435. Rage, rage against the dying of the light

Inspired by Dylan Thomas’s poem, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

414. Cast a spell

Updated January 2010 I have no idea where it originally came from, but somehow a book of magic spells ended up in my hands when I was a kid. I spent hours pouring over it, fascinated by the stories told inside. The first half of the book was collected up stories of witches and witchcraft […]

358. Fall asleep counting my blessings

Updated May 3, 2010 I’ve been raising my awareness about how supremely lucky I am. It’s so easy to concentrate on lack and all the things I want to do and have and to feel deprived. But all it takes to turn that around is shift focus away from what isn’t to what is. I […]

300. Try Hatha Yoga

158. Ask questions! Question everything – sexuality, faith, values, and especially my lawyer

Updated May 31, 2010 I’m working on being better at asking questions.

I think I’m also good at questioning the big stuff in […]

139. Be the hero of my own life

I won’t let anything hold me back.

115. Have my palm read

The mysticism of palm reading – do these women really know something about the future? Or are they just gifted at looking into people and seeing what’s really there?
