Life List 21-30

posted by Momo Fali on November 18, 2014

It’s been over four years since I added items to my Life List. FOUR YEARS. That’s just sad.

Life List 1-10

Life List 11-20

I revisited numbers 1-20 today and can actually cross off #8Paint a picture. Yay, me! Also, I’m closing in on #18Sample 100 types of beer. There is only one that I would remove from the original list. Let’s just say I must have really been craving chocolate that day.

I just posted about numbers 3, 4 and 5 yesterday, so clearly those are still in the top five and I registered for my first half-marathon today and that’s number 2. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.

Some of the things will probably never be accomplished, but a girl can dream. That’s the beauty of a Life List. It’s time to make some additions and progress! Let’s get to work, shall we?

21. Learn to play guitar. I can’t sing, though, so I’m not pretending I’ll be like Joni Mitchell. I’m attracted to the soothing strum of the strings.

22. Go on a winter campout. I don’t even like winter, but this has always appealed to me. Maybe because of all the forced snuggling.

23. Hike in Zion National Park. Pictures never do the locale justice, but every picture of this place is so gorgeous, I can’t imagine what it must look like in person.

24. Learn to golf.

25. Participate in an adventure race. Something over 24 hours long. Not in the jungle, or anything, but one that tests the mind as much as the body.

26. Learn to paddleboard. Then practice over some clear, blue, ocean water.

27. Visit the Vatican and attend mass at St. Peter’s Basilica. That place is, like, the Catholic mothership.

28. Float in the Dead Sea.

29. Sit in a natural hot spring. Preferably in a cold place, because hot springs in Mexico don’t sound very appealing.

30. Take a photography class. So I can take beautiful pictures of my adventures.

    I know a nice young lady who could teach you how to golf. She lives really close to you, too.

  • Shannon

    I want to take a photography class, too. Wish you lived closer and we could sign up together.
    I have hiked in Zion and you are right, it is majestic. I actually promised my son that we would go back someday when he is grown and hike the entire Narrows together (we did a small piece of it when we were there). I intend to follow through on that one.

  • Amie

    For #29, may I suggest Calistoga, CA (maybe just not in summer)? And may I suggest you take me with you?

    • Momo Fali

      Sounds like a plan!

    28: Try the Great Salt Lake. It’s closer. 23:

    Wait, that deserted me mid-word! Okay, 23: watch the weather reports, like, really really closely. I knew someone who was hiking in the back country at Zion’s where you had to sign in with the Park Service so they knew who/how many/etc and then you had to check off at the end that you were out.

    It had rained, I think the day before. Sudden LOUD rumble… They scrambled upwards and the flash flood came within inches and seconds. They were told later that that water goes so hard and so fast that the sand in it rips the skin off you–the Park Service went looking for their bodies in a helicopter the next morning, but they’d survived.

    I’ve had a healthy respect for pictures of that place ever since.

    […] That is why I almost packed a bag and flew out to Utah on a whim to hike in Zion National Park (another life-list item). Because I’ve heard there’s no better time to walk up the side of a cliff than when […]
