There are things my heart wants to do but my head says no, sorry. Or, that doesn't make sense for you right now but if it makes you happy maybe just maybe someday, ok?
And I say ok, head, I'll just write them down for now.
This is not like a life list in any way because these are things that I most likely wouldn't or couldn't ever do. They are frivolous, vain, or - as enriching as some of them could be to my journey- they are insignificant to why I am here,
sometimes I think about them nonetheless.
I want, before I cut my hair short (if I ever cut my hair short), to have dreads.
I want to have an unassisted home birth with a perfectly healthy baby (and me) as the end result. I imagine it would be a boy and his name would be Soren or Fallon or River.
I want to, someday, when the mood strikes, drive somewhere impulsive, a spontaneous roadtrip no matter who is in the car with me. Probably ending at an ocean. With my feet in the sea.
I want to go to a church that doesn't have a building. One that meets somewhere different every week, maybe at a big park, at someone's house, on a big farm, in the middle of downtown, at the beach, wherever we meet.
I want to get my nose pierced but for it not to be a big deal.
I want to go back to school (like a real school) to learn French fluently.
I want to own an apartment in Paris, France and stay in it often.
[This was Part One of what could become a many part-ed series on my many part-ed whims.]
I'd love to hear what you sometimes want to do even though you know you never will.
